Caterpillar 966G Series II Wheel Loader is a miniature version of a real machine. Constructed primarily of aluminum components and plastic trim parts the wheel loader is a spectacular achievement in miniature. Operating as the real machine does with a hydraulic system capable of 174 psi, it has the power to dig dirt and load trucks. The drive system is a 6,000 rpm high torque 12V electric motor coupled to an all-metal 3-speed transmission and in turn coupled to two metal differentials at a 15:1 reduction ratio. Transmission and rear ends operate on a full set of ball bearings. All kit components are supplied with the durable baked on powder coat finish. No painting necessary
Including a fully articulated differential to walk over cell phones or rocks
Note the detail!
Sold as a kit that can be assembled by the novice but might tae 50 hours to build. The more advanced builder will find the fit and finish to be top shelf and a comfortable challenge. This is a big model at 24" long, 8-1/4" wide and 9-3/4" tall and you wont believe it weight of 17lbs. This kit has everything that the big machine has. The Goodyear tires are rim locked, this means when you go into a pile of dirt and spin the tire they don't spin on the rims. This wheel loader has the power to keep digging. The hydraulic system has enough brake out power (175 psi) to get a full bucket of rock and lift it with ease.
