Value for Money
- August 6th, 2018Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Very worth the waitI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI went to the Lego store on release date and purchased this set. I spent a couple of hours each night building it. As a crane it is a fitting replacement for 42009, it is more complex and a lot of fun. It has some features which that crane has, some that 42042 has, and it adds a longer boom. Like 42042, everything runs off of one motor and it is a brilliant instruction on how to use one motor to drive multiple systems, this in itself made me like the crane. There is a lot more to like about this besides its elegant use of transmission of power. When I say this is massive, I am not kidding, it is a meter tall with the boom fully extended. However, the build does not feel overwhelming at all. It is well organized into sections. The instructions are split into two books and the parts are sorted into 13 sections. Finding parts this way is not too daunting. Total build time for me was about twenty hours split over three days. The crane lifts more than I thought it would and the spindle winds and unwinds the cable extremely well. This one won't tangle and the cable unwinds and winds back onto the spool by a very clever use of two pulleys that travel on axles. The designer(s) of this crane did a great job. I just wonder if they took into account the two linear actuators being driven by the same axle,the gears travel in opposite directions which means at times one of the linear actuators may have a larger stress on it. All in all, a great flagship model!

Certainly value for money & a great improvement on 42009. Many great RC functions, would recommend for anyone who fancy a challenge, can be built in about 12 hrs 32mins. I also think that the building is a lovely added feature to finish off the crane.Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 12 hrs 32 minsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Rough Terrain Crane
- December 22nd, 2018Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Worth every pennyI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI got this as a birthday present, I've been eyeballing it for awhile. The build wasn't much different from other technic sets but the reward at the end is worth it. The height it reaches and the ease of controls are amazing. My 3yr old can operate it. Great features all around and very spot on details.Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 12 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Rough Terrain Crane
- January 7th, 2021Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Holy Cow Batman!I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI have built dozens of Lego sets, including the Mobile Crane MKII #42009, as well as many other Technics sets. This Lego set is the most uniquely engineered, most complex, most interesting design, I have seen to date. So I was not astonished when Batman presented with one gear that I had somehow failed to include in the Bag #2 build (see the attached photo). No worries though. This is Lego. Just take it all apart and build it again. So that is what I am about to do. If you are looking for a challenge and an opportunity to build a truly well engineered, incredibly well designed mechanical device - then build the Rough Terrain Crane.Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty5.0Value for Money5.0Building Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Rough Terrain Crane
