Rated 5 out of 5 by DmitryLG Excellent starting Technics kit for my 7-year-old
I got this kit for my 7-year-old as an experiment, to give him something more challenging than a LEGO City kits that he has been playing with up until now.
He was already used to building fairly complicated LEGO City and Engino kits, so the provided instructions were not an issue for him. I had to help him with identifying some of the smaller part labels, but other than that he proceeded on his own.
It took him about 16 hours to build this kit over a period of four days (on vacation, at the cabin). In the end, my participation amounted to about 15 minutes of the total build time. One area where he needed some help was the assembly of the engine block, the rest he figured out on his own.
The completed model is somewhat fragile for the 7-year-old to play with, especially the doors, the front grille and the rear wheels. These tend to come off a lot when he plays with the truck. These items are fairly repairable, so no big issues there. The mechanical section and the gears have stayed fairly robust so far.
This kit looks like a good introduction to a more complicated Technics kits, like the 8069 Backhoe that we will try next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by manco Awsome set!
I LOVE this set. It is fun to build and to figure out how it works. I got it 2 or 3 weeks ago and have almost never stopped playing with it. It is incredibly sturdy and very well designed. I was concerned that the lift would not stay in place when you were “shifted” onto the winch but it does! It takes me 3-4 hours to disassemble and reassemble so each time I rebuild I get a whole afternoon of fun. It would be nice if the second models instructions were included. But all around it is a really great set especially with the peaces costing only 7.3 cents a peace! (They usually cost 10 cents) I really love this set. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by ljd1 another great lego product
I bought this product for my 8yr old grandson who is absolutely thrilled with it. He is a very clever boy and with a little help from his dad enjoyed building the truck. My only complaint is that the motor that is needed for the mechanics to work are not included and are at an extra cost which is not clear when purchasing the product.
