Finally done.  4000 pieces.  Might buy another one as there is a different machine you can build with the same pieces.

Yes it does.  The bucket goes round and round to drop rocks on the conveyer. The conveyer moves to fill the dump truck. The whole thing goes forward and backwards.  The conveyer moves left and right.

That is pretty bad ass.  My 11 year old daughter is on a STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathmatics) team.  They build robots out of legos around a programmable control module using various sensors.  They are built to perform certian tasks and compete on different levels.

I am looking to give away the rock crawler.  Free postage and manual.  I will pack it up as best as I can but no guarantees about what will happen when it gets there.  Let me know.

My son would love this. Is it still available?

It is fully assembled so there is nothing to do but look at it.  Is that what you are looking for?  It does move as I described above but you sometimes have to help it along.

Yeah, he'll play with it. He loves anything mechanical.

Got it.  Plane leaves here in a couple days.  Not much traffic here in the middle of nowhere.  Good luck.
