Tweet With this remote control backhoe loader you’ll get both your digging, and your scooping done with one construction model. Start your own construction crew with this Volvo K012 1:18 scale backhoe loader. Remote control has forward, reverse, left, right and loader up and down controls. Backhoe is operated manually. Includes 4 plastic rocks. Requires
As best illustrated in , the remotely controlled backhoe 10 generally comprises a backhoe 12 having an front arm 14, a front bucket 16 coupled to the front arm 14, an engine 18, a steering system 20, a drive system 22, a left stabilizer arm 24, a right stabilizer arm 26, a rear articulated boom arm 28, a rear bucket 30 coupled to the rear boom arm 28, and a cabin 32. The cabin 32 has a roof 34. The drive system 22 includes a plurality of gears 36.
In this paper, remote control of backhoes is achieved at construction sites with a pneumatic robotic system we have developed. The system mainly consists of pneumatic robot arms actuated by pneumatic rubber muscles (PARM), CCD cameras and a control box containing power source, PC and wireless LAN boards. The remote control system was applied to two types of backhoe, one small with bucket size of 0.025 [m3] and another medium-sized bucket with 0.28 [m3]. Field tests were conducted at local construction sites to confirm the effectiveness of the system. The remote control operations were achieved with the working efficiency of more than 50% compared with that of the direct operation. The effectiveness of the system has been determined.
