Build and experience the powerful Mercedes-Benz Arcos 3245! The tough LEGO Technic Mercedes-Benz Arcos 3245 with motorized crane, claw, tipper body and outriggers is packed with authentic details

Climb aboard the awesome Mercedes-Benz Arcos 3245! This huge, robust, 2-in-1 LEGO Technic model is packed with authentic details and features. Turn on the included Power Functions large motor and engage the advanced pneumatic system (new for fall 2015) for complete control over an array of exciting motorized functions.

You can operate the ultra-versatile crane arm mechanism, open and close the grabber, extend the outriggers or raise and lower the tipper body! Twin axle steering, double differential drive and fully independent suspension provide ultimate manoeuvrability, and the driver's cab tilts to reveal a detailed 6-cylinder engine with moving pistons.

Open the cab doors to access the detailed interior with dashboard, blue seating and steering wheel with Mercedes-Benz logo. This meticulously detailed 2015 model also features an extendable crane arm, 4 suspended axles, double wheels on the 2 rear axles, opening tailgate, warning beacons, wing mirrors and comprises 2753 elements, making it the largest LEGO Technic model ever produced.

Our customers say

LEGO Technic - Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 - 42043 is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 77.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Technic Set to Date When someone asks what my favorite Lego sets are I immediately think of this one. A few years ago I ordered the Unimog set but never received it.:( Since then, they never had another pneumatics set. (except for the 42008 service truck but it was disappointing) I was excited for the new pneumatics system to come out, and it did not disappoint. This set is loaded with features, functions and details, and was very enjoyable to build. pros -decently large -many functions -new pneumatics -amazingly detailed (most detailed technic set of all time IMO) -New pieces -good suspension system -interesting steering system cons -disappointing outriggers, very small for a set this size -no cargo, I just ended up using the 42055 cargo -The crane is difficult to build with all the tubing going everywhere, hard to thread it through the holes (pages 284-289) Overall its a great set I definitely would recommend you get this if you don't have it since it'll retire soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mind-blowing set Back in the late 80's/ early 90's when I was a little kid I had a few Technic sets and I really enjoyed putting them together. Now I have a little son who is super into all sorts of vehicles, so I decided to buy this set to stroll down the memory lane and see what it's like to build a modern Technic set, also knowing that my son will have something super cool to play with once I am done with it. The building process was very rewarding (especially putting together the engine, gearbox and steering), but also laborious at times (piping). It took me about 16h, and I am a bit surprised by how long it actually took me to finish it. All in all I enjoyed building this model a lot, and towards the end I was actually slightly disappointed it was going to finish soon. Some people complain about instructions not being clear - personally I think that LEGO did a sterling job of showing across nearly 500 pages (yup) how to assemble this truck. The end effect? This model is just phenomenal. It is humongous, so despite the price I think it represents a good value for money, and also it really looks very similar to the real-life Mercedes Arocs truck. Power and pneumatics functions are great, although I noticed that even though initially crane turntable was moving steadily and smoothly, over time movement started getting erratic (not sure if it is down to batteries wearing down, my son's antics with it or piping slightly getting in the way despite the correct laying). Hand-of-God steering could be better too, as the knob keeps falling off when you try to move the model on a rough surface holding it. Overall it is an epic set, and I am sure it is going down as one of the most iconic Technic sets ever released. I was thinking about buying it for a few months, as I had never spent so much on a LEGO set before, but in the end I decided to go for it and I am so glad I did. So if you are not sure if to get it - snap it fast, it's well worth it and might not be around for much longer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! Out of my entire Technic collection, this is the totally best! Everything about it is so good! It is fun to build and really recommend it, you do need a little patience to build it, actually, no patience required! It was too fun to build!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lego arocs truck. Very good value for money. I brought this and the bucket wheel excavator at the same time. I saved over £120 in comparison to lego themselves Very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing set very fun to play around with only thing i don't like is the steering is a little flimsy and when you drive it over something the wheels turn but good news is that if you wish to add power functions what i suggest is taking out the "engine" and the drive train and you can put a receiver or two where the "engine" was and a XL motor at the back of the truck with very simple modifications

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lego Mercedes bends 3245 42043 This model from Lego shows how far the next generation of Lego has gone the air system works really well and the detail is excellent the only down side is the time it takes to build but if you like Lego like my son does the time soon passes and the outcome is worth it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality set as always with LEGO Box arrived to store in good time. Our 8 year old son loves Technic LEGO and along with his Dad the lorry was built over the course of a few evenings. Great LEGO set enjoyed by the whole family!
