Huina RC Excavator

Huina 1510 rc excavator
Last updated on October 14, 2018 10:36 am

The Hiuna 510 RC Excavator is a beautiful model if you are looking for a budget-friendly version. Sure, it probably doesn’t have as much power as the Vario John Deere excavator, but overall, it provides a lot of fun, and it’s a great thing to add to your backyard RC construction collection.

At first glance, it seems that there’s a lot going on with this model. It comes with eleven functions, which are really easy to implement with the remote control. It can go right and left, backward and forward. You can also change the bucket incline (for dumping), and the arm itself can move in two ways. The lower part goes up and down, and the upper part of the arm can also fold to help you get the machine into the right position.

Just like with other Hiuna products, you cannot expect it to be entirely made of alloy. So, the bucket, the bulldozer, and the cab are all made of alloy, whereas the rest of the machine is made of plastic.

Now, the remote control on this model is what gives it an excellent quality to price ratio. It looks just like regular Hiuna controllers, but this time, it has more buttons. Therefore, you will find a mute and a demo button. It also has the regular sticks used for moving the excavator. The two buttons on the top of the remote control allow you to control the shovel (it goes up or down) and the bucket (up). The button that gets the bucket down is just below it.

In terms of radio frequency, it uses the regular 2.4Ghz, which can range up to 328ft. And, when it comes to the overall design, you won’t be disappointed.

The rubber caterpillar is durable and strong enough to go over almost any type of terrain. It’s also wear-resistant, and it grips well to the ground. Therefore, while you’re playing, it won’t stumble that easily upon small rocks.

The driving cab also has a 360° rotation, and there are also sound effects and LED lights, which will allow you to play even at night. So, even if you’re just buying this for your child, you will be completely dazzled by the quality and the resemblance to the real machine. There is also a 15CH Huina 1550 Version thats worth checking out. Click to see the Huina 1551

Now, this Huina RC Dumper is probably one of the best budget toys on this list. Even though it falls into the “we’re on a budget” category, the quality of it is undeniable – and just wait until you see how it drives.

In the package, the model comes pre-assembled, and you also get the remote control and the USB battery charger. Once everything is set up, and the battery is fully charged, you’re ready to go.

It drives like a tank, which might confuse you at first. However, controlling it is quite simple; the remote control has only a few buttons. It also has headlights in the front and taillights in the back of the dumper, so when you’re going backward, they will turn on, and vice versa.

Overall, if you are looking for a decent and fun dumper, this model is one of the best choices. It’s agile enough to drive relatively fast, and the bucket itself functions beautifully. It has a good incline, which means that you will easily dump anything out of it. Furthermore, the button that you will use for the dumping out doesn’t allow for gear grinding. So, even if you hold the button for a long time, the bucket will just go up and down, without any damage done to the dumper itself.

The tires on this little dumper are made of high-quality rubber, and they feature a great pattern. Because of that, you can rest assured that this dumper will go smoothly over almost any kind of terrain and obstacles.

Lastly, you ought to know something about the quality. Don’t let the price fool you – this dumper is worth every penny. Not only does it work exceptionally, but it’s also well-designed and realistic-looking. Plus, if you get any other RC construction toys, you will surely have a lot of fun digging and dumping.

Huina RC Alloy Shovel Loader

Last updated on October 14, 2018 10:36 am

Now, if you’re not really into spending a lot of money on a collector’s piece, and you just want to play in the backyard, then this Huina RC Alloy Shovel Loader is a good choice.

It might not be as high-quality as the Wedico one, but it works just as well. However, there are few things you should take into consideration.

First of all, only the bucket and the top of this model are made of alloy. The rest is made of plastic, so you cannot count on its durability. Nevertheless, the alloy parts seem to be reliable, and they should prove to be useful while playing, considering that they have meticulous details on them.

Second, the tires on this model are really good-looking. They have the classic pattern, which is necessary for driving the truck over dirt and rough terrain. However, because it’s a bit lightweight (since it’s mostly plastic), it can seem a bit wobbly sometimes. It weighs just over 3 lbs.

In the package, you will also get the transmitter, which uses two AA batteries. The transmitter works quite well with the model, and it has the basic functions you will need. Furthermore, the model also comes with a USB charger.

The loader comes pre-assembled, and that’s a big plus if you’re not that versed in building or modifying RC.

One of the downsides might be the fact that the model seems a bit small. So, if you have a Huina dumper, the bucket might not go as far up as you would like it. But, if you still want to use it, just place the dumper a bit lower to the ground. It will work wonderfully then.

Product features

  • 2.4GHZ frequency.
  • Multiplayer support.
  • Can be used both indoor and outdoor.
  • Battery: 4.8V 400mAh
  • Transmitter battery: two 1.5V AA batteries
  • Battery life: about 15 minutes. You have to charge it as soon as you get the truck.
  • 6-channel loader functions: the digging arm can go up and down, and the bucket tilts up and down. Regular left, right, forward and backward movements are also present.
  • Black and yellow design which resembles the original loaders.
  • On/Off switch in the back.
  • Dimensions: length: 16.2”, width: 7.9”, height: 6.5”

Last updated on October 14, 2018 10:36 am

A budget-friendly tower crane is not that difficult to find, but this Huina model has both the best price and the excellent quality.

At first glance, the design looks a bit simple. Yet, the features are up to standard. The tower crane has all the basic movement functions – it can go left, right, backward and forward. Furthermore, the crane has a 360° rotation, and the crane arm goes up and down rather smoothly.

The sound effects are also magnificent. Once you turn them on, it sounds like a mighty tower crane, which is what you definitely want. And, there are colorful lights too! But, if you find these features a bit annoying, don’t worry – you can safely turn them off.

It’s made entirely out of non-toxic materials, so if your child wants to play too, there’s no reason to worry about it. It has an alloy hook, which is as strong as it can be when it comes to budget-friendly products. However, the rest of the model is made of ABS plastic and premium rubber.

Overall, this tower crane is a versatile model that will surely take your backyard construction company to a whole new level. And, given the fact that the hook can lift up to 11 lbs, it will definitely be a great addition to your collection. The tower crane itself weighs only about 4.5 lbs, and it’s not that big, so you will easily find storage for it too.

If you are an RC enthusiast, you will undoubtedly enjoy this toy. However, the kids will love it too. It’s easy to use, and it works well on almost any sort of terrain.

Huina Forklift

Last updated on October 14, 2018 10:36 am

If you’ve noticed the “tower crane” in the subtitle, then you’ve probably guessed it. This machine is actually a 2-in-1 product that will certainly give you endless enjoyment while playing.

Unlike some other cheaper forklift models, this Huina forklift has many alloy parts. For starters, the whole frame is made of alloy, as well as the forks, the hook and the cage/cab. The forks look almost exactly like the real thing, and they are incredibly strong as well.

Given the fact that this model is somewhat big, it’s no wonder it can lift a lot in one go. However, make sure that you are stabilizing the objects you’re transporting. The pallet may wobble a bit if there isn’t enough weight on both sides of it.

Nevertheless, you can simply ignore that small downside and focus on the engineering behind this forklift. It’s well-made, and the material that the manufacturer used feels and looks quite durable. Also, the forklift comes in a yellow and black design, so it’s not going to stick out among your other machines. Don’t worry – your collection will remain exquisite!

Because this model is a 2-in-1, it was necessary to make a comprehensive controller for it. And, you won’t be disappointed with it. In case you ever forget how to use the controller, keep the box somewhere. It has all the instructions you may need.

The controller itself is similar to other Huina controllers, but it has additional functions. It comes with four main buttons and two control sticks. For going forward and backward, and left and right, you’re going to use the sticks.

However, if you want an auto demonstration, there’s a special button for that. The four buttons form a circle, so the controller is quite easy to use. The buttons on the left and right are for auto demonstration and sound. Meanwhile, you will use the up and down buttons for bringing the fork, or the hook, up or down. Furthermore, the 2.4Ghz controller has a long-distance range (30 meters), and even if you have additional RC’s operating at the same time, the frequency will stay stable.

Bear in mind, though, that you will probably have some trouble getting the forks in the right position. It’s quite easy to do, but it takes a bit of adjusting. However, the good news is that you can adjust them arbitrarily to accommodate the weight and the size of the objects you’re transporting.

In the end, when you properly test the forklift, you’ll see how efficient it is. It can even lift some of your other RC toys, so when you’re in the backyard, you won’t have to get your toy manually. Just use the forklift and watch the magic happen!

Overall, this forklift features a great design and exceptional details. And, given the fact that its battery life is a bit longer than usual, it is a winner for most RC construction lovers.

Product features

  • 2.4Ghz well-labeled controller (requires four 1.5V AA batteries)
  • 8-channel operation
  • Strong transmitter frequency
  • Battery: 7.2V (included in the package)
  • Controller: four 1.5V AA (not included)
  • USB cable for battery charging
  • Durable alloy parts
  • A pallet for lifting almost any suitable object you can think of
  • Playing time: about 30 minutes
  • Charging time: 3 to 4 hours
  • Possible add-on: a flat cart
  • Dimensions: length: about 57cm, width: about 20cm, height: about 33cm

Hi-End hydraulic hobby grade RC construction machines

Wedico CAT 345 D LME Hydraulic Excavator Kit

Last updated on October 14, 2018 10:36 am

Now, Wedico has already established itself as somewhat of a leader on this list of fantastic RC construction equipment. And, their excavator is no exception when it comes to quality. The design differs from the John Deere excavator a bit, and the attention to detail is evident from the first glance.

One of the best features of this model is its ability to turn endlessly, both left and right, in the upper vehicle section. Furthermore, you can smoothly drive it left and right, and backward and forward. The tires feature the original tread pattern, like the other two Wedico models on this list, which adds to the reliability and the stability of the model. It has no trouble at all going over rough terrain, which will only help you enjoy it even more.

Moreover, the 14-bar operational pressure is exceptional, to say the least. The electrical system also comes with a speed controller, a WEDICO-Buehlermotor, and all the little details that make this model a fantastic investment. The horn and the lights add to the experience, which is what you are actually buying with RC construction vehicles (apart from the functionality).

The scale of this model is quite good: 1:14.5. Moreover, the chain drive comes with toothed belts, and the model itself has the classic H-shape.

Metal construction adds to its durability, and it’s easy to maintain. However, there are a lot of parts you have to use during the assembly, so don’t forget to read the manual thoroughly. And, if you are a bit worried about the tires screeching, there is no need. In time, they will stretch a bit; the more you use it, the more fun the model gets, and the more efficient it seems.

The only real downsides are the boom functions. Now, that doesn’t mean that they don’t work. Actually, the functions add to the agility of the excavator. However, bear in mind that the main boom uses a lot of hydraulic fluid, and the hydraulic pump has a certain limit. So, the machine might stop and skip a bit if you’re moving the main and the other boom at the same time. It’s just how it goes with these types of models, but the issue is easily avoidable. Just use one function at a time, and you’re golden.

Also, the way it turns on and off might confuse you a bit. Some of the functions might not work if you first turn the radio on and then the model. However, you’ll undoubtedly figure it out while playing. It takes a bit of effort, but the enjoyment is really worth it.

Product features

  • Incredible 14 bar (203 psi) operating pressure that lets you play and dig all day long.
  • Battery: 12V 4.5Ah
  • Die-cast aluminum construction
  • Soft rubber tires
  • Plastic parts – for details (such as the driver’s cab)
  • Black and yellow powder coating, which makes it look exactly like the original
  • Exceptional breaking-away and wrenching capabilities – it’s as powerful as it can get
  • 3-way control valve block
  • Stable excavator arm; it will lift almost 10 pounds of weight in one go
  • Requires a 7-channel remote control
  • Weight: about 17 lbs (pre-shipping).
  • Dimensions: height: around 8.66″, width: around 30.9″, length: around 31.5″

Vario John Deere Excavator 850

Last updated on October 14, 2018 10:36 am

Have you ever seen a real John Deere Excavator 850 working its magic? It’s quite fascinating, to say the least. And, as soon as you see it, you immediately think that it would be awesome to have a small excavator, just like that one, to add to your collection.

Luckily, Vario had the same idea, and their John Deere Excavator 850 Kit is a fantastic investment for all enthusiasts.

First of all, the quality is definitely there. Not only is the model perfectly designed to look like the real thing, but the detailing is also exceptional. The upper base plate and the undercarriage are both made of laser cut steel, which means that this little model is as durable as it can be.

Furthermore, it also comes with GFK / Metal composite booms, and a pretty stable excavator arm. While controlling it, you will not have any trouble at all digging the dirt efficiently. Plus, the arm can lift a good amount of dirt in one go, so it’s almost guaranteed that even the most difficult job will be finished with this excavator.

The model is a fantastic replica, and it has the yellow-black coloring as well. Moreover, since the electrical system is that well-made, it’s not that difficult to use. And the smoothness of the arm movements is what will certainly make you incredibly happy. It’s also not that loud while digging dirt. However, once it starts turning, you may want to warn your friends – it can get a bit screechy.

Product features

  • Weight: over 75 lbs. Cab height: 12”.
  • Material: solid laser cut steel (upper base plate and the undercarriage)
  • Ready-to-mount cylinders.
  • An incredible operating pressure of up to 32 bar

Last updated on October 14, 2018 10:36 am

Germany and Germans themselves are well-known for their extreme attention to detail. Thus, it’s no wonder this Wedico Caterpillar 740 Dumper Truck landed on this list.

First things first, if you want to purchase this particular model, don’t forget to order it in time. Germany is far away, and it may take up to 8 weeks until you finally get your dumper truck kit.

Now, at first glance, the Wedico CAT 740 is incredible. Not only are all the details accurate, but the overall weight and height of the model are perfectly scaled down to 1:14.

Furthermore, the entire model is made of metal (die-cast aluminum), which adds to its durability. There are only a few plastic and rubber parts on the entire model (for example, the tires, the flaps and the inside of the cabin). So, no matter how much you use it, or how often, it will surely last for a very long time. And, given the fact that it’s fully functional, fun is all but guaranteed.

The screws it comes with are made of stainless steel, which means that their strength is outstanding. If you construct it properly, there’s little chance they will come undone. What’s more, apart from the metal, they will also add to the durability of the model, and the overall functionality of the other pieces.

In terms of how it functions, it won’t disappoint you. Although it is as loud as a dumper truck can be, that only adds to the “realness” of the model. Furthermore, it has a great ability to actually perform the actions you want. So, for example, if you decide to haul a large amount of dirt with it, it will operate exceptionally. Plus, there’s the black and yellow powder coating that adds to its look.

The Wedico CAT 740 also comes with undeniably powerful hydraulic cylinders for dumping and lifting. With them, the dumper truck is able to support up to 10 kg of weight, which is extraordinary for a model like this one. But, that can only tell you more about the quality and the expertise hidden behind this dumper truck and Wedico.

The truck also comes with two hydraulic cylinders for steering. Now, if you’ve ever gotten into a lot of mud with your truck, you might know how difficult it is to come out of it. Not with this model, though. Just like the rest of the functioning parts of the truck, those steering cylinders are also quite powerful. You will certainly be able to get out of the mud fast without even trying too hard.

Product features

  • 3-speed all-wheel gearbox
  • Durable chassis
  • Lifting and steering cylinders, powerful enough to support a great amount of weight

Vario Corp. is a well-known manufacturer of RC construction equipment, and when they came out with their B50D dumper, everyone got excited. There isn’t anything you’re not going to like about this machine, and the features it comes with speak for themselves in terms of quality.

As it turns out, this is one massive RC toy. Because of that, most websites will tell you to avoid giving it to a small child, especially if you have pets. Furthermore, it’s needless to say that this sort of model comes with amazing quality parts that only add to its durability.

For starters, its length is 31.46″, and the width of the model is 10.83″. But, even though the dimensions are bigger than usual, the overall weight is not worrying. It weighs about 19 lbs, depending on the batteries and the additional equipment you use.

Furthermore, the operational pressure is quite powerful. It equals to 10-15 bar. And, to top that off, its dump capacity is about 44 lbs at 14 bar.

The model is entirely made of solid cut laser steel, save for the parts like tires and such. Moreover, it comes with planetary gearboxes that will allow you to enjoy it even more. It should make for a rather compelling drive.

One of the things you should know about this model is that it’s not really easy to construct. Even though you will get complete instructions with the package, make sure to follow them to the letter. You wouldn’t want an expensive model like this one to fall apart any time soon. And, it won’t, if you give yourself time to build it.

Wedico makes yet another appearance on this list of amazing equipment you can buy. And, just like the previous entry, it’s an expensive little model, yet worth the trouble and the wait.

Just like other Wedico models, this wheel loader kit is also shipped from Germany, and it comes as a fully-detailed replica of the original. Not only is the entire model made of die-cast aluminum, but it also comes with a special Caterpillar decoration sheet as well.

So, when it comes to functionality, it is ready to come out and play in your backyard. The electrical system uses a 12v battery pack, which you will get in the package. Furthermore, the motor is incredibly powerful, meaning that you will easily move a great amount of dirt in one go.

As expected, the model comes with all the necessary details, like brake lights and an engine sound. And, in terms of volume, it might be a bit loud at first, but that’s what makes it one of the best models out there. It really does add to the whole experience, especially when you use it with other RC construction vehicles.

However, bear in mind that this model weighs about 17 lbs (pre-shipping), so it’s a bit heavier than the cheaper models once you assemble it. Nevertheless, it proves to be a valuable investment. It works just as well as the original, which isn’t something you can say with confidence about cheaper models (usually). And, since that’s the case, you will undoubtedly have fun with it for many years to come – the quality is beyond exceptional.

Product features

Vario Komatsu WA500-6 Wheel Loader

Last updated on October 14, 2018 10:36 am

The Komatsu WA500-6 wheel loader is a beast in real life, which is why you can expect the scaled-down replica to be just the same. Even though it’s a toy, it is a mighty piece of RC construction equipment if there ever was one.

In terms of design, it has all the necessary details that make it as close to the original when it comes to looks. The yellow and black coloring is outstanding, and the proportional design of the model is perfectly executed. It’s the size that will only convince you it isn’t the real Komatsu – even the photos you can find online can confuse you for a moment.

The scale that was used is 1:14. Although this is a somewhat regular scale, the massiveness of this model is what will certainly attract you to it.

Currently, it is one of the largest RC loaders available on the market. Because of that, its popularity shouldn’t confuse you – nor should the price be somewhat strange. After all, most  enthusiasts are more than willing to spend a lot on a model like this one.

What’s good to know about this kit is that the construction might take a while. However, you will get the complete instructions with the package, so just take your time while building it. In the end, in order for it to work, you have to be careful with it.

Finally, in terms of durability, it’s made of laser cut steel, apart from some of the other parts, like the tires and the driver’s cab. Nevertheless, overall, it’s a mighty model that easily goes over rough terrains and pebbles. Furthermore, it has the necessary agility required for moving decent amounts of mud and dirt from your backyard, which only really adds to its value.

But, the biggest downside of this machine is the fact that you have to get additional parts separately. The model comes with a basic kit, which is a bit limiting if you want to play with it immediately.

Product features:

  • Precise details and a fantastic tiny replica of the original Komatsu wheel loader
  • It comes in a kit with detailed instructions.
  • Agile and quick when it comes to the upper section movements.
  • It comes with a high-quality set of patterned tires.
  • It’s not too loud, and it seems that it can haul a lot of dirt in one go.
  • Optional add-ons: radio, controller, charger and battery packages.
  • Material: laser cut steel
  • Dimensions: it’s 10.63” high and 9” wide. But, in length, it has 27.75”

Key Points to consider before buying any RC construction equipment or vehicles

As you have seen, RC construction equipment is no laughing matter. Well, except if you use it for household chores and scaring your dog. However, even though it provides you with multiple ways of having fun, finding the best quality products can sometimes be tricky.

Here are some factors you should take into consideration when purchasing RC construction vehicles:

  • Be aware of the shipping time. Just like you’ve seen with the high-end models, most of them have long shipping times. Therefore, if you don’t have time to spare, it might be a good idea to opt for budget-friendly versions instead. However, if you are more than willing to pay extra for top-notch quality, even the long shipping time won’t burst your bubble of happiness.
  • Check the materials. Even if you are just buying these products for yourself, it’s always wise to make sure that the manufacturer doesn’t use any toxic materials. These models often have small parts that can end up on the floor or somewhere in your backyard. Thus, your children and your pets can easily scoop them up and try to eat them. Furthermore, try to pick models that are made of durable materials. They can contain plastic, but if everything is made of plastic, there’s a slim chance the machines will do exactly what they should.
  • Make sure the instruction manual is detailed. Not only will this make your life easier, but you will also finish the construction fast – that means more play time for you. The instructions should be detailed and to the point. Also, preferably in English as well, unless you know Chinese or German.
  • Be aware that the more they cost, the more details they’ll have. Therefore, if you decide to purchase a cheaper model, don’t be surprised if it’s not an exact replica of an original. If they are well-built, they will still function the same way – they just won’t look as good as the original. However, if you have pennies to spare, don’t be afraid to invest in high-end models. They are exceptional collector’s items, and even if you never use them for digging, dumping and transporting, the sole engineering invested in the design is worth the price tag.
  • Don’t forget to have fun. When purchasing RC construction toys or vehicles, you might get carried away and decide that it’s best not to let your kids play with the trucks. However, these toys are meant to bring you joy, whether you are a collector or just an enthusiast. Therefore, don’t forget to try them out and really let your imagination flow.


You can go with high-end or budget-friendly. However, both versions will give you the right amount of fun and the enjoyment you seek. The versatility of these machines is uncanny, and the more machines you have, the more fun you’ll secure for yourself. Plus, there’s always something that needs digging!

Having an RC construction company in your backyard is a blast! – and if you cannot have a real one in real life, who’s stopping you from playing with almost exact replicas in the comfort of your own home?
