Rated 5 out of 5 by JLego93 Cool to build, cool to play with!
This set is one of the greatest lego technic sets I've seen.
1. It looks really good. It looks like a real service truck.
2. You open the panels on the side to access the controls, just like on a
3. It features pneumatics and to different motorized telescopic arms.
4. It is very cool to build because the technic is build in red and recovered
by green pieces.
5. it has got 7 different functions; 4 motorized, 2 pneumatic and 1
6. the interior is very detailed and features a steering-wheel, seats,
doors that open, info panels and side-mirrors.
This isn't all. But I will not reveal more.
If you like building and/or playing, this is definitely a set for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BillyMills Very Impressed, a few minor flaws
I really liked the finish product of this model and it has probably been the most enjoyable Technic Model I've built yet. The towing arm is very intricate and complex with multiple automated functions. The truck's frame is built around the arm and its mechanics and its dimensions are probably the reason why Lego choose to make this a semi-truck tow truck and not a regular tow truck. The finished model is pretty big and will take up a fair amount of shelf space, but unlike some Technic models that feel hollow on the inside there isn't a lot of "empty" space in the model and it feels very compact for its size and functionality. The few flaws i found were that the steering was "clicky" and not very smooth and I also believe that my kit was missing one minor piece that caused me to make a small cosmetic alteration.

Rated 4 out of 5 by matiasvad A lot of clicky-clacky but an overall good experie
There are plenty of functions, which really baffled me compared to the much huger 42009 Mobile Crane MK II.
The complexity of the build is not a high as the 42009, but it's more dense and focused around the gearbox.
Using the power functions requires a attention if you want to avoid a to of clicking, but even though, when using one of the functions with the pneumatics you will need to hear the clicking for it to operate correctly.
The pneumatics are my favorite part of this set, having never seen it in action before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rocky44 Good Product with Lots of Functionality
I like the product because of its features you are getting pneumatic as well as motorized functions in only one set that costs only $129.99. The only thing I am disappointed with is the differentials, it is not having differentials.So, there is no engine under the cabin. And the rear tires are very close to each other as compared to front. But the set is very good and you can use your old sets with it to lift them. Well that's all for this time see you again next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jer2900 Great Set! But a little expensive
This set was great. It not only looks good, but it is also fun to play with. It wasn't too challenging to build, and anyone could have fun building it. The only bad thing about it is that it is somewhat expensive for what the final build turns out to be. It is smaller than I expected for the price, but overall, it is a great set!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Texadan Father and Son Project
Excellent Father and Son project. My son is 12. I marked that it took 6 days to complete the project. We did not work constant on the project. My guess would be 5 to 6 hours a day. But we had a very good time together workin on this. We did have a couple of complaints. Some of the pictures of where parts are to be placed arent very good. Some explanations are lackin. The parts bags were not numbered as they are in other kits. We opened ALL the bags and separated all the parts and put them in containers to make it easier for us to find the correct parts needed for each step. The only changes I would make is havin the bags numbered as with other kits and some of the illustrations could be a little better. Other than that I think its a very good kit for some Father/Son time. This kit being the most complicated we have done together but not the only kit period, we both had a good time with it. A lot better than my son in 1 room with electronic games of some kind and me in the other room wonderin if his brain is not gettin fried.............

I asked my parents for this set for christmas and i got it. I built it right away. When i finished it was awsome. I love the pneumatic fetures. The price is a little price but hey, it is worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LukasHerpDerp Service Truck
It's a nice thing, although the crane part goes too high. The value of the set is fair, I'd say. Because it's put into a lot of detail for some parts. The there a lot of pros and cons. I'd rate this as 'Good'
