    This was a great model to build. It had the right amount of gears and motion parts to keep you on your toes. I like to combination of yellow, blue and black pieces. Very realistic. Upon completion, my grandchildren ( and me) enjoyed playing with it. I brought out my other construction Technic models so we could all enjoy the moment. I bought a second model to either have 2 forklifts and to build the tow truck.

    Great Forklift, Small flaw
    | 25-34

    I'll first start off in general saying this is a great forklift and good playability. I must say there is a flaw with the forks and little string. When you try to lift the tan piece with the hazard material on it. You'll notice the front of the fork leans forward due to the weight, so it slides off once you go too high. It looks like the string is the only thing keeping it attached to the mast. t's still a fun set though.

    Good build.
    | 25-34
    Purchased for: Self
    Overall, a good building experience. Not the most technically challenging of a build. Only real complaint would be the back isn't quite finished, leaving an exposed engine. Would've been nice to see a covering. The play functions are easy to use. The exhaust pipe controls the steering, the beacon light raises/lowers the forks, and the tilt is controlled by two levers on either side of the cab. The pallet that comes with the build can easily accommodate different cargo. I haven't had a chance to try out the second build, but expect it to be good.
