The inlet of the first is routed to the outlet of the other, making them turn in the opposite direction of each other. Lego has a service where you can order separate bricks or contact them when a brick is missing from your set.
The finished model looks stunning, and the functions work well too: It weighs 55 grams. The is in fact called “Excavator” by TLG, Even though it’s not an excavator, can’t dig and is a material handler.
The box is the same size as last years Logging Truckand the Super Car. This set is truly a pinnacle of Instructons design, and alongside the has to be the best studded official set ever made!
It was a great set to start my collection with and within two years I had collected all the big models and most of the smaller models.

The building of this set took hours under the Christmas-tree and nearly midnight it was completed. Although the cylinders in earlier sets originally had yellow top whereas this has a black topthey were otherwise identical to this. Edited January 17, by davidmull.
I would say cutting the piping to the right length is very important. The white thin liftarms here will attached to the rear axle later on. Never place the bricks in a washing machine or dishwasher.
Nearly all of the pneumatic parts in this set are new this year; the smaller cylinder and the pump are all introduced with this set. What is the best way to clean my Lego bricks? The first two cylinders rotates the crane assembly. Materials Handler The secondary model also starts at the bottom, but it doesn’t lsgo the differential, making the drivetrain much simpler. I Love this set, the only one for ages that a proper compressor, mine is till on a shelf right behind me form my childhood, stayed in the loft during my dark ages only to be removed and worked first time, the only issue I have is the turntable is not that quick, but other than that amazing.
Two universal joints are used to extend the driveshaft to the front. An insstructions extension wire runs all the way along the chassis. While testing it’s strenght, I ended up grabbing a Mini Mobile Crane which it was able to lift, and stretch out. It was only seen in this and the Space Shuttle.
Further ahead you can see how the switches are held in place by modified plates. It is my only set which has never been disassembled innstructions still works as if it were new. Custom steering hubs are made for the two steered front axles. And the compressor sound is also like the real thing. Personally I instruxtions it’s robust and clear aesthetic very much even if there is no steering wheel but of course the function is the strongest part of the rig.
This set ranks among my top 10, and is certainly worth the bucks I paid.

You’ll probably find that the seller forgot to include the extra tubing required for the B model in your set. The frame for the crane is built as a instrucions unit, then placed on the turntable.
More on this in the conclusion of the review. That’s it for the main model, moving on to the alternate: Take a look at my studless interpretation of what it might have looked like today!
Glad I got some spare tubing from a previous order. It even featured this element! I did not know how well the set actually was until now. BTW, does anybody know that who was the original designer of this set? Well, on with building, starting with A model: The only thing I missed was the in-cab steering wheel, but I don’t think there would be any room for it. That black brick holds all the hoses in the right place, no more need of marking each one.
The secondary model also starts at the bottom, but it doesn’t use the differential, making the drivetrain much simpler.
The two biggest contributers to the discolouring of the plastic of Lego toys are long term exposure to sunlight and cigarette smoke. I must admit that I had forgotten how old the set actually was. Converting the price to legp of beer yeah student years. The driveshaft connects with both the rear differentials.
