LEGO Technic - 6x6 All Terrain Tow Truck - 42070 is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and fun I was a little put off by some of the negative reviews here, but it's a great kit. My 3 year & 5 year olds helped do a few bits with me and guard the wheels until the last steps. They also "persuaded" me to finish it in one day which was not the initial plan! It's since played with non stop for a few days, and nothing has broken or "fallen" off and even the younger one has been able to use all the functions with ease. So the design quality has been well tested there. I love the remote control function, it really does make these a lot more enjoyable. The only downside for me is that Lego don't seem to make a rechargeable battery box that runs off a USB charging socket as that would really make these models ideal, and yes the lack of a floor in the back is a shame. A transparent one would have been a nice touch for the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great parts, good model. This is a great kit for seeing all the ways you can use technic gears and drive parts. It would have been cool to have a couple more motors on this set, but probably cost prohibitive. The mode selections are pretty easy to use and all of the functions work well. The 6 wheel drive and articulated suspension makes this one of the most capable lego models I have ever used. The motorized legs are a nice touch. The crane arm works ok, but could be a little more sturdy. Adding a light set is an easy upgrade that looks fantastic on this kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent build and play experience 5 stars What a great kit! The build overall was very satifiying with many different powered mechanisms running through the main frame. Once complete you have a beautiful blue all terrain recovery truck that actually does what it's supposed to and does it great! The boom crane is strong and can upright my overturned EW160 or Claas Xerion tractor, check out pic. It also looks great with a mean stance on 6 all terrain look tires. The outriggers are strong and do thier job well. In driving mode it runs good quicker than I expected ans easily goes over our indoor obstacle course. My 3 yo son and I are having a great time running it I reccomend it to everyone who enjoys Technic. A tip for future builders, turn the string before you tie the knot to the boom so the 2 hook lines hang parallel and not twisted. Overall, my favorite set so far. Keep up the great work Lego and happy 40th for Technic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent set, complex and fun I found this set to be a really enjoyable and satisfying build in both the 6 wheeled tow truck and alternative build versions. Highly recommended, though don't expect it to be particularly quick as due to the gearing and size it's a little slow to move.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best lego technic set ever! Why does this set has such a low rating!?!? i totally love this set! Yes it’s a bit expensive but considering all those remote functions i think it’s worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, complicated model! The experience to build the truck was unique. Would like to see more LEGO-models in this category, i.e. 1500+ pieces, e-engines for moving parts, improvement of the remote control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting build and decent RC truck This is the biggest Technic set I have tacked since the space shuttle decades ago. Following on from the Tracked Racer last year this is my second Technic RC. The build took a long time and was a good challenge. It has a lot of pieces and some complex gearing mechanisms that require concentration and are very interesting to put together. I kept double checking the gears as I was building the model wondering if I had made a mistake but it turned out fine. Learning how the gears all work together and switch between the different functions was the most fun part of the build and I found this rewarding in itself. It is great to see things like proper differentials making it into a Lego model. The finished model looks great. I love the blue colour but did not like the dark dishes for the wheels so I left them yellow. I think the blue and yellow go together well. The bear on the front is a nice touch and the chains add to the scale look of the model. The engine although a little small for the truck has pistons that move as the truck moves which I thought was a nice touch. I do think more could be done with the bed at the back of the truck. I see the advantage of leaving it open so that the gears can be seen but a removable flat cover so things could be loaded onto it would have been nice. As for the motorized side of things the truck moves and turns well enough and can navigate over some small dips and bumps. The outriggers and crane all operate smoothly but you do need to flick a switch on the model to switch between these modes. If I had any suggestions regarding the motorized side of the model it would be that the drive train could do with a little more grunt. As I said with the Tracked Racer I would also like to see Lego offer an 2.4Ghz alternative to the IR transmitter and receivers at some point. All in all this is one of my favorite builds of recent years. It was fun and challenging to build as well as a great model to play with afterwards.
