With this engaging enginering kit, you will construct four detailed models of realistic farm equipment and four models of special attachments for them. Once you've constructed your models, you can take them out for a spin by controlling them with a multi-channel, radio-frequency remote-control unit. Gain engineering design experience as you follow the visual assembly diagrams to piece these models together, configuring their motors, gears, wheels, axles, levers, frames, and connection points to all fit perfectly together.

Build a highly mobile tractor model that drives forward, backward, and turns left and right. Diversy its utility by equipping the attachments for the tractor including a cultivator, disc harrow, hay rake, and seeder.  Affix these to the back of the tractor one at a time to change the function of the tractor.  By modifying the tractor you can make a model of a combine harvester that moves across the floor as if it were slowly traversing a wheat field, reaping this year’s bumper crop. Assemble a farm truck model with an interesting pivot point at its midsection, allowing it to turn more easily. Finally, build a windrower and experiment with its highly maneuverable wheel configuration.

A 64-page, full-color manual will guide you through assembling the models with clear and detailed step-by-step illustrated instructions. Read the manual to learn how the real-life iterations of these awesome machines work to make farming faster and more efficient. Learn how their engines work and how the attachments harness physics and simple machines to their advantage.  Read about other scientific concepts and ideas related to farming in the manual.

Features:

  • Construct four detailed models of realistic farm equipment (tractor, combine harvester, farm truck, and windrower)
  • Includes four different different attachments for the tractor (cultivator, disc harrow, hay rake, and seeder)
  • Modify the tractor with the attachments in order to morph the tractor into the other vehicles
  • Learn through hands-on engineering how these amazing machines work, and use physics and simple machines to cultivate our crops
  • Includes a 64-page, full-color manual that will guide you through assembly
