Rated 4 out of 5 by from challenging but not hard. This is a great Lego product as of looks, functions, and size. the functions worked great but the pneumatics pistons were a bit short. the aesthetics on this set are great. the mounting for the side paneling was a bit weird though. the steering worked great and I like the 4 wheel steering. all in all a pretty good product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great, challenging product, many power functions This is the most complex model I have built until now. The gear section is quite complex and very compact. The number of functions is quite impressive. I was dubious about air piston but they did work. The color scheme is great. I usually dispended from adding the decals but for this product I have added all of them. The decals does help to remember what levers does what. I did enjoyed myself quite a lot I do a few points that could be improve: 1) In the second instruction guide (6070890.pdf), at page 38 – in the upper left section of the page. You are adding some kind of lever. I did not understand the purpose until I stated using the power functions. I then realize it was some kind of “brake” that would insert in the spoke of the gear so it would lock the gear of the winch so would it not drop the load. The purpose of the brake should be explain. Again about the same lever, the connector as no friction so it always keep dropping on gear of the winch thus you have to hold it yourself when using the winch to lower the hook, if would not then it stop the gear. I have solve this issue by changing the gray frictionless connector with a black connector with friction so when I use the winch, I move the lever out ways of the gear and when I finish move the brake on the gear. 2) Speaking about the winch, the hook is so lite, when you use the winch to lower the hook the cable just start unraveling around the spooler so you need to pull on the hook or attach some weight to it. Maybe the next could version of hook, a steel ball could added to it so it would more weight. 3) The front of cab (the part covering the radiator) of the truck is quite fragile, so you should never hold the vehicle by front section so maybe there could a ways to make it more robust All in all, again a great model, challenging, many power functions, lot fun to build and also I did learn a few things in terms of mechanics. . I am looking forward so see a new product with the same challenge My next product is the plane. Long live Lego

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Complex build Was really fun creating this one, spent about a day going building it. Some parts where a bit tricky (gearing for the pulley didn't look quite right at first) but that's actually the fun part, so good times had.
