RC ADVENTURES - HUGE RC! CATERPiLLAR 242D Skid Steer & Torc Robotics - Quick Change & Safety Tech

Click to Subscribe! ► http://bit.ly/JOovvU - At the RCSparks Ranch, this is our new full sized 2016 Caterpillar 242D Skid Steer with the Torc Robotics "RemoteTask" RC setup installed. This install allows me to have controls either in the machine, (as a usual setup), or the option of being outside the machine to operate it. Being as I have a bad lower back due to a previous, and aging injury - spending long hours in a skid steer is not possible. But, as demonstrated in this film, I no longer need to spend too much time inside, rather operate it via remote control. To address some questions from my last film: 1) Why didn't you go with a tracked machine? 1a) After weighing out cost, vs my applications - a wheeled skid steer meets my needs and budget. I have a lot of snow, ice, and a flat surfaces. Also, our soil has a lot of gravel in it, that like to cut rubber. 2) Can you ride inside the machine? 2a) Of course, it is a full sized skid steer, with optional robotics added 3) It looks small in the preview picture, is it a mini? 3a) Hah! It is actually a full sized skid steer, just the perspective is different. I am standing closer to the camera, at a "safe distance". 4) How much is a setup like this? 4a) Depending on your area of the world, and currency - prices will change. I am in Canada.. and I purchased my setup at "Finning", my local CAT dealer. 5) Is it Brushed, or Brushless? Gas or Electric? 5a) a 74.5 HP Diesel Engine 6) How much can this machine lift? 6a) A total of 2150lbs 7) Is is the Two Speed version? 7a) Yes, this 242D skid steer is a Two Speed. Low and High 8) Is the Quick Coupler / Change tool Hydraulic? 8a) No, the Quick Change is Electronic 9) Why would you get a robotic skid steer? Isn't it more fun to drive from inside the cab? 9a) I love operating machinery, both inside the cab or now outside! Because the Radio Control industry is one I am passionate about already - I am excited to have the ability to operate a full scale machine via remote. My main use for a robotic skid steer is to protect my back, as I have an injury to some lower spinal discs. Riding inside can jostle and aggravate my injury for long periods of time. The secondary reason I am interested in this technology is because I believe that to this point, no one has taken the time to explore a product like this, and the uses it may have - while recording their adventures. As I have been operating a film company that specializes in filming the Radio Control products of the world, and because I love HD equipment - I figure this is a great opportunity for us to explore what this "everyday" consumer product can do.

RC ADVENTURES - Radio Control Skid Steer - Full Sized CAT 242D

RC ADVENTURES - Radio Control Skid Steer - Full Sized CAT 242D

Click to Subscribe! ► http://bit.ly/JOovvU - The rains are about to fall and if I don't re-level my waterway, even MORE soil will erode and the gully wont be able to hold enough water. Time to bust out my skid steer and get to work. Because I have a show that focuses on the Radio Control hobby, for me it only made sense to get the TORC Robotics, "RemoteTask" setup for my new CAT D-Series skid steer. This allows me to control the skid steer via remote up to 1000' away. Recently, my older skid steer had an engine failure, and instead of limping it along another season.. it was time to sell it and move on. My back is still thanking me for the choice.. hah! I mentioned in this video I would link some other videos that I have done on this skid steer. Here is a list of the ones I have done, to date: Part 1: Demo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTMCqh7Wn1g Part 2: Unveiling: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OENS5A0LVN8 Part 3: Monster Truck Ramp: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XnHRlAlLhQ To address some questions from my last film: 1) Why didn't you go with a tracked machine? 1a) After weighing out cost, vs my applications - a wheeled skid steer meets my needs and budget.
