The invention of mechanisms has always been aimed to facilitate human labor. Therefore, in the era of large-scale construction in the 15-16 centuries, an earth-moving machine could not but appear. It was invented by Leonardo da Vinci.
But the first excavator appeared only after 500 years. The conventional boom and the bucket machine was invented by William Otis. Since then, technology has come a long way, but the form and functionality of excavators have not changed conceptually. This is all the same combination of a crane and a bucket (shovel) for moving soil.
Now earthen machines have many varieties and purposes. They perform their tasks on the surface of the earth, underground, and even underwater. Excavators have become one of the main helpers of people on the planet.
The “Tireless Digger” self-assembly model has become a continuation of the collection of heavy special equipment in the “Metal Time” DIY kits.
The excavator is a complex and spectacular machine that deserves its place among the collection of models in your home. Therefore, our engineers made it very realistic and functional. After assembly, which is a challenging and interesting process, the excavator model is even capable of digging soft soil such as sand. True, this can only be done by manually operating the boom and bucket. And the “Tireless Digger” moves on a caterpillar track independently with the help of a winding mechanism.
The reliability of the details of the model, the presence of a spring winding mechanism, and a lot of components make the assembly of this model an interesting task with a consistently wonderful result.
The “Tireless Digger” model has most of the common parts of a real excavator. The designers tried to transfer even the smallest features of the car to the scale model, such as, for example, a shovel on the side of the engine compartment.
The design allows the components of the boom and bucket to move in the same plane, and the rotating cabin gives them another plane for moving.
Realistic caterpillars move due to rotating wheels connected to a winding mechanism, which also needs to be assembled by your hands.
A lot of details and the complexity of the model and mechanism will make you spend more than one hour in the assembly process. But as a result, you get an amazing model that can be used in completely different ways - both as an exhibition piece and as a child's toy.
“Tireless Digger” will add to your collection of heavy machinery if you already have other “Metal Time” models. Or it will be the start of a new collection of pieces of your technical creativity.
The DIY model “Tireless Digger” is intended for everyone who is interested in the history of the development of design ideas in the creation of heavy machines and mechanisms.
This model can be used as an object of installation or schematic reconstructions of historical facts, for example, the construction of the Suez Canal or the Three Gorges Power Plant.
Assembling “Metal Time” models is a fun activity for the whole family or a group of friends and a challenge for your constructor skills. This process can be used as a creative competition or as an anti-stress activity.
The “Tireless Digger” model kit is designed for a wide range of users aged 14 and over.
The study and assembly of the model develop the skills of technical creativity, and encourage the study of the history of science and technology.
To successfully assemble a model of an excavator, you will first have to study its structure and the purpose of all parts of this machine. This will broaden your horizons and serve as a great learning moment for kids and teens.
In addition to the exhibit of a personal exhibition, the Tireless Digger model can "work" as a toy for children. When assembled, it is completely safe and will be a great helper in the sandbox.
«Metal Time» models are not only a constructor for active leisure. It is an excellent gift, interior decorations, elements of installations, layouts and exhibition stands.
