42102 Bucket-Wheel Excavator




Bucket-Wheel Excavator, an alternate / C-model of 42102 Mini CLAAS XERION

My third alternate from this set. This time I wanted to use more of the gears. I had the idea to make something like a bucket wheel with the big gears and some beams. And so I came up with this small bucket-wheel excavator model.

The bucket wheel is driven by the wheels. I used all but one of the gears for this. The arm with the bucket wheel can be lowered and raised by a lever in the back through a linkage.

Assembly is a bit more complicated than usual. For example two axles are only inserted half into the beams at the ends. The instructions tell you to use some bushes to get the correct spacing and then remove them. Don't let this confuse you.
