Using a unique over-center linkage, this sophisticated machine is capable of executing both a scooping and lifting motion with its specialized forklift arm. Powered by a hand crank, this machine will move balls in a continuous loop at a rate of 1 ball per second.
This construction kit challenges you to not only Build Genius™, but dos so while constructing a roller coaster style ball machine at the same time. Once built, watch as the gears turn, the axles twist and the balls roll as you turn the knob by hand or attach a motor kit to add power to this machine!
