Help please!

Hello guys! So I will get right into it. I am trying to find a wheel loader or excavator to buy. I have already made a wide research and the only one which is affordable at the moment is the Huina 1550. I want to start with something cheap and then slowly getting more and more expensive. I am gonna using it with sand mostly so I believe that I won’t need something very strong. Does anyone has to suggest me something else? Even cheaper than 1550? Or a wheel loader?

Thank you in advance!

You can check out my thread in here...

I have lots of stuff so can tell you what is good or not in most of the Huina brand construction toys.

The 1550 is a good start, but it really needs a better transmitter and stronger rams.... most of which is shown in my tread....

I see... do you think that the Huina 1550 will do good with only sand? Or any kind of soft dirt. Is there any other brand same as the Huina but cheaper?I am thinking that I can wait a while to purchase a reliable one. I like the Huina 580 which is full metal and hydraulic it looks like it has much power in it. Or I can be more patient to buy a Volvo or a cat. Do you have any opinion about a cheap and reliable wheel loader too? At first I just would like to start with a cheap collection and then slowly getting more expensive.

The 580 is nice but 10 times the price of a 1550. A hydraulic 580 is probably 20 x the price of a 1550. In Australia, a 1550 costs about $85, a 580 is about $750 and anything hydraulic is about $2,000

A 1550's problems are it is weak, and when trying to dig, the arms click and stop when they are overpowered.... the transmitter has a terrible set up of buttons.... to do fluent digging you need to be able to push 3 buttons at once and you only have 2 hands.... and the plastic arms.

A 1550 ($85) with metal arms ($90), screw rams ($60) and a 580 Tx and board ($65) means you have a strong excavator with an easy to use Tx for about $300 which is less than half the cost of a 580

Okay never mind... I prefer to spend my money on something reliable as a 580 full metal hydraulic or better a cat or Volvo wheel loader. It’s not so difficult to collect the money besides...another thing,I have a wheel loader and a truck on 1/64 scale both. How difficult is it and how expensive of course to convert those to rc? Is there any site to order a kit? And a guide to show you how to do it?

Can anyone tell me where i can find a replacement board for a Double E remote control Excavator? The number on the back of the board is

One of the motors that drive the tracks is getting low or no voltage and the other is getting intermittent high and low voltage.
