Today I want to introduce you to a project from 2013.
I designed and built this excavator for Kits. Im last winter I changed the mechanics so that the bucket now moves realistically.
The small excavator consists of beech, oak and ash.
All surfaces are oiled.

That looks great. Having the 2 handles to move the bucket are a great feature. I’m sure children will spend hours playing with it. Do you have plans for this excavator?

I’d play with that! I’m sure my grandchildren would like for their “Pa” to build something like that.
