- September 18th, 2018Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Simply epicI would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis has to be one of the best sets ever. The most overwhelming thing is just how easy and user friendly the controls are, especially the steering which is so light and so well designed to move such a large vehicle. This beats all previous cranes, including 42009, hands down.Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 11 hrsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Rough Terrain Crane
- January 31st, 2019Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Amazing Set, Great Functionality!I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis was a challenging and fun build. I worked on it a couple hours each night 2 weeks. The separate gear boxes for the upper and lower portions were a nice twist. It is a very fun model to play with. All the power functions run smoothly with the only exception being with the boom all away extended there is some jerking in the right and left rotation but it is minimal. The hook on this crane is sturdier compared to the crawler Crane grappler, although I think they still lift a similar load.Play Experience5.0Level of Difficulty4.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 15 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Rough Terrain Crane
- November 4th, 2018Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0A really big buildGardener |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis is a tremendous build and pleasantly time consuming. The actual build is quite simple in parts, but in others is very complex, but as always the build instructions are superb. The parts are split into 13 sections, each of which takes more or less one hour to construct, which lends itself to the build being spread over several sessions of one to two hours over several days. The finished item is BIG. The particularly pleasing items are; 1. One motor drives; a. cab rotation through 360 degrees in either direction b. boom raising and lowering c. boom extension d. lifting hook raising and lowering e. stabiliser deployment and retraction All of this is enabled through a very clever gearbox via the selection of the appropriate action with easy to operate, but positive, switches. 2. The cable is wound neatly on the cable drum by means of sideways sliding cable guides, providing a very realistic appearance, unlike the 42009 Mobile Crane, where the cable drum looks a mess by comparison. 3. With the boom fully extended and upright (a full metre high - 20 centimetres higher than the 42009 boom) the cable, when fully wound out, ensures that the hook rests exactly on the ground. A very nice detail. 4. The manual steering is nicely positioned at the rear of the vehicle to both steer and propel the vehicle and, again, a very nice detail is the small rubber wheel provided as the steering wheel which enables very easy manoeuvrability of such a large vehicle. The Lego designers really have added detail which makes a big difference to the "feel" of this model and have surpassed themselves with the superb multi function gearbox. Some "nice to haves" would be; a. a triple telescopic boom as with the 42009, rather than simply the two part boom. Although the latter is probably in keeping with the real thing, the action of the triple boom is very pleasing and perhaps a little "poetic licence" could be allowed? b. infra red control of the on/off power from the battery box to the motor, particularly when operating cab rotation. I have added this facility which greatly improves operation, but I would not change the manual switching between functions, which is part of the magic of this model. c. motor driven steering and drive with infra red control - I have yet to work on this idea. However, I do accept that with such a large, heavy model at least two large motors (perhaps more) would be needed for drive which would push up the price of an already expensive set. As it stands it is well worth the money. Initially I wasn't sure about buying this set, but am really pleased that I did as it's a great addition to my collection of Lego Technic, both for play and display.Play Experience5.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 12 hrs 30 minsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Rough Terrain Crane
- January 22nd, 2019Average rating5out of 5 stars5.0Hats off!Sutty |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfYes, hats off to the designers of this kit. Where on earth did you start to design the build? Build was certainly entertaining and at times challenging but following the guide and hopefully you won't go wrong. Throughly enjoyed build and can't praise Lego enough, motorised functions are very enjoyable to. Well done Lego build designersPlay Experience5.0Level of Difficulty5.0Value for Money4.0Build Time: 5 daysBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55Rough Terrain Crane
