It is quite windy today, but that wont stop the crew from having an epic day on the mine. The ground is finally thawing, and we are able to get our first few buckets through the pay dirt separator. Our Mining truck is collecting the pay dirt close to where the wash plant will be mounted.
The Trommel was originally built by Mike, aka "MAV",() in early 2014. He did an amazing job visualizing and fabricating this powerful machine. The whole thing runs on 12v, and is very impressive in person. Our first runs were successful, but like in any mining company.. the machine takes a beating and could use a few turns of the wrench. After a year with it, and a few tweaks, the machine is back up on the run.. and what a better way to unveil it again then with a great video! Now we are once again able to mine and filter Good Pay Dirt, from the Debris - soon I will set up the wash plant.
The Tonka Conversion was done by fellow RC enthusiast Judd Phillips, also known as JRPRC () He has a complete playlist on how to convert your very own Tonka Dump truck into an RC. He also has other helpful playlists on how to convert Non-RC construction toys in to Moving Machines you can have fun with!
We are awaiting our loader fixed up and tweaked out by YouTuber "DiggingwithMartin" () When it arrives we will be start moving some serious scale yardage.
The Excavator was purchased from RC4WD.
