About this creation
After exiting my dark ages, I decided to build a Case Tractor as my first MOC. This tractor is based on the Case Steiger 335.
There is a total of 8 motors, and all functions are remote controlled, except for the air compressor. There is one XL motor for each drive axle, one M motor for steering, one M motor for the PTO (power take off), one M motor for the air compressor, and three M motors for each of the pneumatic valves. The air compressor is controlled by a pressure regulator and turns on/off automatically as needed.
The pneumatic functions include the three point hitch, plus two auxiliary functions for attachments.
Attachments include a disk and mower. The disk uses pneumatics to raise/lower the wheels, as well as folding the sides. The mower attachment uses the motor driven PTO on the tractor to turn the blades.
The tractor is 18 inches long, or 36 inches long with the disk attachment. The widest point of the disk is 24 inches.
It's a rather uncommon build, but that makes it all the more special, obviously. I like the execution, and the overall outcome just looks remarkable. Now a video would be good :D Keep up the great work!
