I spent around 1700 euro on top of the kit price to get mine fully build with quality material. (that does not include the transmitter, as I had that already)

I have started to build a quick coupler for the bucket. The first part is completed. Now the fastener for the bucket. I am not yet sure how I will make it (with a motor or manual)

Your a man on the move, looking awesome. You should maybe hire yourself out to dig mini trenches for tight areas that a real track hoe cannot fit, hehe.

An indoor sandbox, I hope you do not have cats
We need a video of your track hoe in operation moving some sand.
