That. Is. Ridiculous.

I reckon those tracked trailer wheels are doing their fair share of pushing.

xoxoxoBruce 12-29-2018 12:17 AM

I'm not sure if the wheels/track on the trailer are driven or not. If you go to the logset website, they stress all their models are built super rugged so their machines are like the Energizer Bunny.

Then you would prefer VERY expen$ive lumber.

Experimenting with stable gear ratios in a Lego Technic construction.
Gets up to 7750 rpm (17k when driven by a power drill--and it eats the plastic.)

Gravdigr 01-05-2019 02:40 PM

That was interesting.

An old racer with two inline 6 cylinder engines has the wildest exhaust system ever...

Now that's pretty clever to make the truck look normal. May cut down on tool theft compared to a box back instead of a bed.

Gravdigr 01-09-2019 10:00 AM

I bet that don't rattle at all.

Why you don't plow deep enough to dig into the road...

Happy Monkey 01-09-2019 06:51 PM

This added at least 20 minutes (I caught the tail end of it) to my commute the other day.

xoxoxoBruce 01-09-2019 07:13 PM

Are those Air Force markings on that rig?

Happy Monkey 01-09-2019 07:18 PM

Via Twitter comments, it's "USA Truck".

xoxoxoBruce 01-09-2019 11:34 PM

OK thanks, somebody has grabbed that for a corporate logo.

Gravdigr 01-10-2019 01:00 PM

It's looks like the old USAF logo. Color is a bit different, also.

Happy Monkey 01-10-2019 01:13 PM

It's still the current USAF roundel, but lighter blue. It doesn't seem like that should be OK, but they've been doing it for a long time.

Gravdigr 01-10-2019 02:05 PM

Then I'm wrong.

Happy Monkey 01-10-2019 03:04 PM

Well, you're right that it's an old USAF logo (dates back to WWII) with a slightly different color. But, while it is old in terms of years, it's not old in terms of replaced.

Griff 01-11-2019 06:54 AM

I feel like that company used to be bigger. I remember seeing that logo pretty frequently years ago.

In local trucking, a load of fracking sand got stuck under the railroad bridge by my work that took the AC off the top of an RV last summer.

Gravdigr 01-11-2019 11:33 AM

I remember working in a warehouse in the 90s, we they had a USA Trucking lane in the shipping dept.

xoxoxoBruce 01-12-2019 12:53 AM

They took Medusa to a car show, got separated at a gas station, so he waited out side the show because she had the money.
I think she was also in charge. :yesnod: You can skip to the 6 minute mark.

Pretty cheap for a fully prepped, blown, injected race motor, plus a ton of spare parts and a whole barrel of nitro..

Gravdigr 01-13-2019 12:26 PM

I used to have a 76 Pontiac Lemans Sport Coupe. Had a .060 over Pontiac 400, healthy cam, massaged 7M5 heads (or some such alphanumeric designation) and a Quadrajet from a grain truck engine, iirc it was 427.

I had right at $3000 in that motor, machine work and all.

That was a fairly heavy car, and it would boogie right on down the road.

xoxoxoBruce 01-15-2019 01:28 AM

Canadians moving a propylene/propane splitting tower.
The load and trucks is 587’ long, 31’ wide, 42’ high, weighs over 900 U.S. tons, and has 912 tires.

Diaphone Jim 01-15-2019 12:00 PM

The front four trucks look like horse teams.

Gravdigr 01-15-2019 01:57 PM

My God, the logistics of that move...:crazy:

xoxoxoBruce 01-19-2019 11:30 AM

If you take a perfectly good engine and wash it in hot water...

Needs a second look

Diaphone Jim 01-19-2019 07:32 PM

My first second look was at the W32 Patelo that runs with coins balanced on edge.
And another one of his

He gets a 10.0 on a degree of difficulty that is off the chart.

xoxoxoBruce 01-20-2019 02:02 AM

No problem, just take a full sized engine, wash it in hot water, and tumble dry. If it's not small enough, repeat. :haha:

Griff 01-20-2019 09:42 AM

The trouble is shrinking the vehicle to scale.

xoxoxoBruce 01-20-2019 11:06 AM

And the people to drive it. ;)

Diaphone Jim 01-20-2019 12:47 PM

I bet I know where Patelo gets his springs.

The Japs had grabbed all the rubber trees(along with the land under them and people who farmed them) long before Pearl Harbor, so inventor Earst Meili came up with this substitute...

Diaphone Jim 02-04-2019 04:21 PM

They were also called "spring wheels" and "airless tires."

xoxoxoBruce 02-05-2019 06:47 AM

Both those links are Meili's work. I think he also came up with a smoke detector, and some sort of light bulb.

Can't trust LEGO...

Gravdigr 02-08-2019 01:48 PM

I've seen a lot of tractors that size do that. Most of the time, on their own.

fargon 02-08-2019 01:50 PM

What do you expect,it's a ford.

This is a message from god, go back to bed. :yesnod:

Gravdigr 02-10-2019 12:09 PM

Chip box on the bucket truck almost did that.

Diaphone Jim 02-10-2019 12:58 PM

I have never seen a 8N or similar tractor break in half on its own.
Tell us more.

Gravdigr 02-10-2019 01:02 PM

Well, I meant without the assistance of an intersecting automobile...

It is/was a Ferguson TO.
Still an unlikely situation.

fargon 02-17-2019 01:32 PM

Sorry my bad, the hood looks like an 8-N Ford. At least it wasn't a Deere.

I believe Ferguson and Ford worked together on the 9N. Ferguson invented the 3 point hitch which apparently Ford screwed him on...
