With this conversion kit the toy snowblower by the company Bruder (Article No 02349) can be modified into a functioning blower. The snowblower may either be built as a single blower for the Dickie PistenBully or Unimogs and tractors, or as a double snowblower for 1:12 snow cat models. A mounting frame for the Dickie (single blower), the Pistenking attachment carrier (double blower) and for the ML-Tec front hydraulics (single blower) are also available as printed parts. With the latter the snowblower may also be mounted to ML-Tec tractor conversions in 1:16.
The needed parts of 3D printed nylon are available in our web shop at Shapeways. In addition parts like motor, speed controller, gears, bearings, shafts, motor-gearbox combination, screws, wires, etc. are needed.
Building Instructions and a list of all needed parts is available on the webpage of Walser Pistenraupenmodellbau.
ATTENTION: The used motor is no longer available, but I found a suitable replacement. The parts have been adapted to fit that motor. Unfortunately there are two almost identical versions of that motor available which only differ by the shaft diameter. Even if you order the correct type with a 3 mm shaft they might send you the wrong one with a 4 mm shaft. Therefore please do not order any printed parts before the correct motor is in your hands. Alternatively you can of course adjust the 4 mm shaft with a lathe.
