IMPORTANT UPDATE 2019
I published a new improved version here:
There are a few important changes for this 2019 version:
- - I redesigned the transmission so you can add a differential gear. That makes the riding much better.
- - I used a new motor that has much more torque.
- - I designed new rear tires for smooth surfaces
- - New under chassis channel for rear cables
- - I redesigned original tires to reduce vibration on smooth surfaces.
- - New series of assembly videos on youtube: Build with me videos
- - New updated spreadsheet with materials and links
I tried to modify as few parts as possible, but you'd have to print some new parts.
I shared a spreadsheet with all parts and updated links to buy components that you can find here: OpenRC Tractor BOM
Please, check the BOM spreadsheet because there are some original parts that you won't need.
Moreover, I've recorded a video to help you with assembly and connections.

OpenRC Tractor (original text)
As an homage to my father and his first tractor I proudly present my next project, the OpenRC tractor. It's an open source 1/10 scale replica of an original Ebro 160D tractor. I designed it all from scratch and 3D printed all parts. Then, I added some electronics, nuts and bolts and I made it work!
I also prepared some basic instructions and BOM, so you can easily print and assemble your own tractor. It is designed to be easy to print and no supports are needed for any part.
Points to bear in mind:
As part of optional parts, you'll find different optional plates. There is one for Spain and one for Sweden because there are already OpenRC tractors in both countries. If you print your tractor and you would like to have a plate with your country letters, write a comment and I will try to add it.
I used same bearings as OpenRC formula1 to make it easier for those who already have the F1.
And you know what the best thing is? You can design your own tools!
With OpenRC tractor, possibilities are endless, new tools keep coming...so stay tuned!! (see below updates and get more details at (http://www.makitpro.com)
