Okay, in this case we’re, going to start off with the 4200 xl excavator. So before we get started with this machine here, so i’ll. Let you know on the last review we did with the dozer, we had a great feedback on it. I believe it kind of helped somebody point some people in the right direction and again these videos are not talking about these machines in a bad negative way, or at least trying not to be doing that. Okay, so um we’re gon na be focusing on the facts and the opinions the best way i can on these machines. So here we have again the 4200 xl excavator. This is my favorite machine. I have in my lineup and to me it’s a good machine for the price again looking at it on photos, do not justify the size of it: okay, it’s, pretty big machine. So if you don’t have one and you want one and if you do purchase it, you will be surprised on how large this machine actually is so uh, again that’s um down into the uh belly of the beast here, the big hydro pump and they fixated a Uh, a gauge on this thing: it’s a big battery sitting in here, um the the thing with this uh. I wish they would have had more of a compartment style to put your battery. Everything is just kind of like wild in here, so this battery can flop around and it can hit on your outrunner motor here.
That provides the power for your pump here, but overall, all in all it’s a good machine for the price. Okay, we’ll get to that later so again there. It is again in the snow it’s on a trailer um down in here on this hub assembly that goes into the gearbox, the gearbox motor. It is not any good okay. Actually, the gearbox on the motor is not any good. So if you, if you get a rock jammed down in your tracks on this machine and the sprocket, stop take the rock out and um remove it, because you will burn that uh break that gearbox. Okay. So just keep that in mind there. It is again so that’s a good picture of it on another excavator so again for the price of this machine. If you’re not looking to spend the whole ton of money, it’s um it retails for 18, 13 and you’re saving 3′ bucks, so you’re looking around 1400 the machine on the website. Okay, so keep in mind shipping isn’t, free and duties, aren’t free, also so you’re, probably looking around uh 1800 1900 bucks at your front door in the u.s, at least that i know of okay. So now let’s go look at the big brother of this machine. Okay, here it is boom same website. Rc4 drive. Has it uh? This is the big brother of the 4200 xl excavator, again all hydraulic. The only difference with this machine is the detail is largely seen on this machine.
The drive motors are upgraded and this the planetary uh hub, looks a lot better and the weight is overall for this machine. The weight is heavier than the 4200 xl excavator. So this machine uh let’s, see how much it’s going to cost you. If you wanted it. Let’S see we can find it right here, keep in mind the 4200 xl excavator was cheaper, but again this machine as a as of right now on the internet is 27.80, so let’s, say 2800 plus shipping you’re going to be looking around 32 30 300 bucks. In the us to get this to your front door, so if you’re looking for quality and the looks of this of a rc excavator, this would be a great great, great great go to machine to um go check out okay, so that would be my thoughts on This 360 l – i i haven’t, seen one in person operating, but they have them on videos. You can go check out yourself and you’ll see these machines working now. What just came into my mind, um? Being that we’re on the subject of rc excavators there’s, an excavator that i’ve seen come on the market, which is a uh it’s gon na be a volvo. I think this is it i’m thinking that this one right here let’s see if i can find this on uh for sale somewhere, because i believe it’s pretty cheap. Is it double e that makes it it’s? 20? 20.
? Oh so obviously i clicked on a uh video here, i’m backing old sandpit loading, uh rc4 drive truck here. Let’S go find the price on it: okay, uh! So it took me a while to find this uh volvo um. I found this. It looks like a german company could be wrong, but uh it’s in euros, so you can go. Do the conversion on 1899.. This is a new machine. They just come out with um. If my uh thinking is correct on this about a month ago, i seen this advertised on aliexpress and i’m wanting to say on aliexpress. This thing was around a thousand dollars for this machine. I could be wrong again. Don’T hold me to it folks, but uh looks like um. It looks like they went up on the price, so american they probably want two grand for this machine. So again, this is a german page. I don’t know why i can’t find it on aliexpress anymore. If y’all, if y’all do and y’all do find it for a thousand bucks, let me know in the comments below um but i’m thinking a month ago. I’Ve seen this and again it was around the thousand bucks. So i was going to get down into detail and going talking about going by this machine but i’m, not sure anymore because of the price um. So please, let me know folks, i don’t know everything so i’m, just trying to uh i’m trying to get the facts and figure out what’s going on.
So i guess that machine is replicating one like this, so that this is the plastic version. You know again, if you can’t, afford these hydraulic excavators um. This plastic version can just play on a small scenery. You can make a little small scenery and um put this in some potting soil and just play around with it. So uh. It looks like the 360 l there and yep that’s the green version, so pretty good machine. So all right so let’s get out of here and we’ll go to look at some uh lasso products. My favorite lesson machine. They came out with um, so there it is that’s gon na be the machine on the last video see me talk about it with the 360. kamatsu. But to me this uh, big son of a here is just a massive machine. Um. This machine should do pretty good, so let’s see okay there, it is so let’s get a video of this we’ll get a video of it running so here so again we muted. So we got. We got this uh tonnage here, which i have one like this pulling. A low boy with the massive ass um excavator, so uh in relation the excavator in relation to the truck. It looks to be a uh okay size, not that big, but um yeah no case size. Okay, let’s get down to some action well, i’m, going to tip the truck i’m going to see how she digs on this one going down, not bad lifting well yeah.
So the dirt is already kind of broken up a little bit it’s a little packed, but it’s been digging of course, but it didn’t look like it had too much trouble getting a scoop up, beautiful machine. Imagine with the the size of that bucket it shouldn’t take long to fill that truck up. I see no stalling in it so boom the mother lode right there, good okay, so that would be my take on that machine uh. I i think this machine looks awesome and uh if i had to purchase one and i if i had to do it all over again folks, it would be this machine i would have to. I would love to own that machine. But again the price point is not in my vocabularies it’s, just a lot of money. I’Ve been spending on on my rc equipment, so i have to scale it back a notch and see if i can build them again, it’s a beautiful machine. So i believe it’s. Well worth its price: okay, yeah. She got the weight to handle that dirt and that’s the thing with these machines. It’S got to be heavy folks. If the machine isn’t heavy you’re not going to get a good dig quality out your machine, she has to be heavy uh, the other excavators which they have a lot more. You can get down into uh from aliexpress. Um, i think, is what the 970 uh let’s see the rc excavator so yeah the 970.
So let’s get some images of that and i’ll give you my take on that. So on this machine, it’s a good looking machine, but for me it just looks funky on the back. I don’t like this funky oval. Looking it just. I don’t know it screams something about this machine that i don’t like about it. You know i mean i myself me my opinion. I wouldn’t buy this machine, i mean it may be a good quality working machine i’m sure it is, but from for the ovalness of it it just. I don’t know just something about it. That screams funkiness to me. It’S got a lot of funky something going on with it again there. It is um, i’m, not sure the price point on that machine, but you can go check it out and see what it calls so again, guys that’s pretty much all the we’re going to talk about on this excavator update here um, if y’all have any thoughts on What what y’all looking into buying and to get and just let me know, i would love to know what you’re getting or what y’all have already and we can all learn together. So again, this uh, these videos are made to promote the rc construction hobby throughout the world and if we can and um right now, i mean i live in the united states and we pretty much don’t have nothing like this in the united states, uh just like, As in germany, europe and other places in the world, their bigger scale, with these rc construction vehicles and um right now, the united states, you know because it’s land of work should i say, it’s called the land of opportunity, but it’s the land of work, work, work And more work and then go home, go to sleep, get up and go do some more work to make a living in the united states.
We don’t have a lot of people. Don’T have time to play with stuff like this, but give me your thoughts on something like that. Uh before we get out i this just came up. I was clicking on it um. This is a nice machine. Okay, this is a front shovel where it goes into. Like the next to a mountain, and it picks up on a mountain and it it loads rocks dirt whatever. So this is gon na, be probably my next build down the road when i get caught up with all my builds that i would love to see come on board, okay, so again, making these track plates down in here is not too fun, and it takes a Lot of time, so i just wanted to show you this part. Is this: this front shoulder looks mean there’s a little scale, version of something so yeah guys uh. Let me know what y’all think if you like these videos, um i’m gon na continue doing them. It’S more laid back for me, and i i think it’s it’s way better for me to make a video like this than going going all over the place and trying to make a video. So i feel better. I feel at home making videos like this. So, okay, guys that’s it for our excavator talk.
