Now helena makes just exquisite excavators in both the plastic version and a metal version that are really nice. I was so excited when they announced the bulldozer. This is one of the very first ones, but i got ta tell you it’s, not what they say. It is we’ll. Take a look at it. We’Ll unbox it we’ll do a quick review. The big deal is the scale’s wrong. They say it’s 1, 16 Κλίμακα, but it’s way way smaller than that which is too bad. I was planning on doing some fun stuff with this, but it’s not to be anyway. I buy my stuff. They don’t give it to me honest review here. Let’S get started. Εντάξει, when i talk about unboxing, normally i get a box, but this is the way it was shipped to me just in this foam container with plastic on the outside and the label. The manual was stuck on the box. Now it does come with a box sleeve, but this seller chose not to send that it’s packed pretty well. But the first thing i noticed is this is not 1 16 Κλίμακα, it’s tiny uh, not what i was expecting at all. So what do we have? Εντάξει, we’ve got the bulldozer, actually it’s nice and heavy that’s good. We have the transmitter, we have a usb charger and we have a rechargeable battery pack. Αυτό είναι το σπίτι μου. 600 χιλιοστά του δευτερολέπτου, so that’s what comes in the package? Applause spin, this dozer around uh boy, δεν είναι αυτό που νομίζω., really small.
Είμαι., going to grab a couple, other huena vehicles to do a size comparison and then we’ll put some batteries in it: Εντάξει, here’s the bulldozer supposedly 16th scale, and this is a 14th scale arena. This is their metal excavator. These are about 400.00 beautiful piece for the money, but you basically can get the scale by how big the driver’s seat is. This is one of the hewina plastic excavators also 114 Κλίμακα, pretty good size, driver seat track length and everything, but this bulldozer. I expected the tracks to be about the same length as this. The driver’s seat is tiny. I’M i’m guessing we’re about 24 scale and scale means that it’s in 14 Κλίμακα. If you lined up 14 of these, they would be the same length as the real unit. 16Th scale, if you lined up 16 of these they’d, be the same as the real unit, but this is more like 24, so it would take 24 to line them up to be like the real unit. I’Ve got one other comparison, i’m going to do for the scale and and then we’ll go into taking a look at how it runs and how it works, but their their advertising is incorrect. This is not 1 16 scale it’s much much smaller. Εντάξει, final size comparison. This is our dozer and supposedly 16 Κλίμακα, and this is a 1 16 Κλίμακα, uh brooder dozer, so you can see that they’re basically the same model those are, but the size is quite a bit different.
I was expecting something a little bit more like this size. Maybe not quite that big, but something more like that. Instead, i got this little teeny thing, so uh disappointed yeah disappointed. I i expected more from fiona. Their other products have been fantastic. I love them, and this is uh just it’s flat out disappointing. So, Ούτως ή άλλως, all right let’s take a look and see how it works. Εντάξει, the little battery fits in a compartment down here in the bottom. Has the uh, typical government mandated screw to have to open the compartment and it just plugs in and fits in this compartment? Here the trout i’ll go ahead and put that in a minute transmitter same thing, government mandated screw, which it looks like it’s set up, so we can get rid of that which is good and it takes a couple double a batteries, so i’ll install the batteries here. So i install the batteries um transmitter on those are on Applause. Εντάξει, this button right here turns the sound on and off. The sound is not that good um we’ve got our blade up and down, and our rear, auger up and down does not have enough power to lift the vehicle up and the blade. If you hold this down, it just continues to go and it does not have enough power to lift the vehicle at all tracks. Working a typical typical tank tread forward and back on each track, pretty easy to drive, not very powerful.
The motors on these don’t work. All that good compared to their excavators, this is just not even in the same league. Their excavators are awesome, it’s too bad. I i thought this might be a really cool load for tamiya trucks having an rc dozer but uh. It just is kind of unimpressive uh. Δεν είναι αυτό που νομίζω., a nice toy uh, probably wouldn’t, push much i’ll. Do a few little tests here. Καλά, Ας. Take a quick look at this. These um sidearms are metal um, Πολύ ωραία, very solid. The body is actually quite solid and fits together. Καλά, it has what i call rubber band tracks: είναι, not individual links, but they’re banned, but they’re they’re, nice they’re, good quality. The blade is plastic, but pretty heavy duty. Um the hewina quality is, is apparent. Um, pretty darn good uh. The rear spike has a metal tip on the blade, υπάρχει, no lights, um the cab doors are solid, υπάρχει, no opening parts here it looks like it would be pretty easy to disassemble um it’s all held together with screws. I was actually planning on disassembling it and adding some weight and doing weathering, but after i got it and saw how small it was that’s that’s off the table. This will be the last time. You’Ll see this so overall that’s how it works. The remote has the sound on and off the blade up and down, although it it’s on a rotating basis, so that doesn’t really matter and the spike up and down, which is the same thing and then the tracks forward and reverse on each track.
An on off switch uses, two double a batteries, and this uses a rechargeable battery that comes with it with a usb charger. So there you go that’s a little quickie on the hewina dozer. I want to talk a little bit more about scale so i’m, going to do a little quick paperwork here to figure out exactly what scale this is. I got on wikipedia a cat. D9 is 26.5 feet long and 14.7 feet wide, which is 318 inches long and 176 inches wide now to get scale. We’Ll use a little calculator here. You take 318 and divide it by 16, which they say this is 16 Κλίμακα. That means it should be 20 Ή 19.875 inches long, Σχεδόν 20, inches long, which is exactly the length of the brooder toy that i showed you earlier and 176 divided by 16. Ξανά, they say 16 scale should be 11 inches wide. Αυτό είναι το σπίτι μου. 8 inches wide and 14 and a half inches long. So what we need to do is multiply these by a number to find the scale. So if i take 14.5 inches and multiply it by 22, it comes out to 319 inches, which is almost exactly uh. What the d9 is and if we take eight inches, which is the blade width and multiply it by 16, eight inches times 22, sorry by 22. It comes out to 176 inches so times 22 gives us the exact measurements we’re looking for. So that means this is 1 22nd scale 122nd the size of the real equipment, not 1 16, like they say: okay that’s, the math part of it.
Επίσης. I have a diecast masters d7 rc dozer, which in real life is much smaller. They call this 124 scale and, όπως μπορείτε να δείτε, it’s it’s about the same size, Πραγματικά, maybe slightly bigger than the hewina product, also just for just for funds. I i never was going to review this because it was too small, but at least they advertise it correctly and it’s a really cool, dozer, um i’ll just turn it on here, πραγματικά γρήγορα. It has much nicer sound, it has lights, the blade goes up and down not on a rotating basis. It doesn’t have enough power to lift the unit and turn the sound off and it drives basically the same so um and it’s. This is roughly eighty dollars that’s about what these are. So you know pretty similar product. This one does sound nice or it has lights so uh anyway, that’s uh that’s. What we’re looking at so there you have it: the huena, 1569 bulldozer brand new product for them. Um i’m telling you it’s too bad that they uh they had felt they had to lie about the scale of it because it’s actually a pretty nice little unit. It would be. It would be great if the blade and the ripper had enough power to actually lift a little bit, so they would dig in i’m sure this will not function very well in the dirt, but they don’t and the sound is yeah it’s. Not that good compared to the the die cast master, Ήχου, δεν είναι αυτό που νομίζω., really really poor, Uh, no lighting, uh metal side frames um.
You know what can i say: it’s it’s a review and i tell it like it.
