- June 23rd, 2020Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Great BuildI would recommend this to a friend!Great model to build, instructions are clear and easy to follow the only problem we found was in testing 2nd stage was, you need to have all the motors connected, but this was a minor glitch. The down side we came across was, missing pieces, in bags 1,2 and 3, so needed to wait for replacement parts to arrive before we could complete.Build Time: 3 daysBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Liebherr R 9800 Excavator
- June 23rd, 2020Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Painfully slow, yet entertainingJKeys |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfA compelling build with precise instructions. Set up of the Power up hubs and motors with your smart phone (iPhone 11 in my case ) relatively easy as long as you follow the instructions on when to do this. The model itself is a marvel to look at especially if big diggers are your thing Detailing (hand rails, hydraulic hoses and drivers cab) add to the look. Stickers as usual are a pain, be careful with the 9800 sticker that goes on the lower jibe, this can easily be slightly obscured during the build if placed central on it's panel. Place this one higher up. Building the gears and drive trains are very reminiscent of the old meccano (when it was engineering based) though a bit slack in the housings for power operation making the model annoyingly noisy in this department (turning up your phone for the machine sound effects or wearing ear defenders masks this ) Perhaps for these kind of models adding bearings and some form of grease would fix this annoyance in them. The greatest aspect of the model is its functional attributes The digging, jibe lifting, body rotation and bucket swings are most fun and entertaining But the track operation lets it down Very clicky as it jumps the drive sprocket on full turning (worrying you into knowing your excessively wearing down the gears), works best on smooth wooden floors Slightest bit of carpet will start the worry when turning. Comically its slow in a scale speed way, it will take approx, ten minutes to pick up a dropped lego piece and hand it to you. its a lot quicker to just get off your chair and pick it up yourself. Yet it would make a perfect running partner for a tortoise.Play Experience3.0Level of Difficulty3.0Value for Money4.0Build Time: 9 hrsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Liebherr R 9800 Excavator

Despite the hefty price tag, and after waiting for MONTHS because of the out-of-stock issue, what I received just now is a damaged set. Can I exchange it for a undamaged one? Thanks.25 January 2021Sarah, LEGO® Customer ServiceOh no, we're so sorry about this!

- October 27th, 2020Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Second Technic BuildI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI have to say the LEGO Liebherr R 9800 Excavator Technic 42100 build was pretty fun build. It was challenging, but not too challenging where it causes too much frustration. The only slight complaint that it is a bit on the tad expensive side, but being a LEGO fan it's still worth it. I thought I had a missing piece, but found out that I had accidentally started building the last part before I was finish building an earlier section. I guess that is how eager you get to finish the build. This is my second Technic build, but not my last as I bought the Volvo hauler as my next build.Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money4.0Build Time: 5 days 12 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Liebherr R 9800 Excavator
