As an homage to my father and his first tractor I proudly present my next project, the OpenRC tractor. It's an open source 1/10 scale replica of an original Ebro 160D tractor. I designed it all from scratch and 3D printed all parts. Then, I added some electronics, nuts and bolts and I made it work!
I also prepared some basic instructions and BOM, so you can easily print and assemble your own tractor. It is designed to be easy to print and no supports are needed for any part.
Points to bear in mind:
As part of optional parts, you'll find different optional plates. There is one for Spain and one for Sweden because there are already OpenRC tractors in both countries. If you print your tractor and you would like to have a plate with your country letters, write a comment and I will try to add it.
Recommended motors have poor torque. They work on smooth surfaces but not off-road. I have prepared a mod to upgrade the tractor with a more powerful motor. Check updates.
I used same bearings as OpenRC formula1 to make it easier for those who already have the F1.
And you know what the best thing is? You can design your own tools!
With OpenRC tractor, possibilities are endless, new tools keep coming...so stay tuned!! (see below updates and get more details at (http://www.makitpro.com)
