5.0 out of 5 stars Fun build and nice model 9 May 2013
Verified Purchase
The model was fun and somewhat challenging at times to build. The finished model looks great and is fun to play with and once you add 8293 and get power functions for the crane it gets even more fun.

Bought this as a present for 12 year old grandson who absolutely loves it! Plenty of challenge but not too difficult for an avid Lego builder.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the price 17 May 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought these set because I have the bigger one and wanted to see was this as good!
And for the price it's well worth it, the only thing is it comes set up for power function but you have to buy it separately

4.0 out of 5 stars Well priced Technic set 5 May 2014
By Mr Baz #1 REVIEWER #1 HALL OF FAME
This was a gift for my son who is big into lego but growing up and keen to try more challenging builds and move beyond the normal lego.

The instructions are clear and well laid out, and also include the build details if you want to buy the Power Functions Motor Set.
You can also re-build it into a Tracked Tractor if you get bored with the Excavator (I have tried both and prefer the initial build but it's nice to have a choice) It is a bit smaller size wise than some of the previous excavator sets.

It does take a while to build (around 700 parts in total) though more experienced Lego builders should not have any major problems. Age wise I think Lego have it about right but a keen 7/8 year old with patience will be fine with a little help.
It's a nice step up for Lego fans who want the try the Technic range, once completed the Excavator is quite impressive it's a nice model even without the motor kit added.

Price wise I think good value for what you get, one of the better ones to try for newer Technic builders. My son's very happy with the excavator and it went down very well for a birthday present. Recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY!!! 22 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
Very clever model to build. You don’t quite see how it’s coming together until half way. Now that it’s built you can clearly see the mechanics of it and you don’t lose interest. Fun to build, fun to play with. Love it!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb product 20 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a simply outstanding purchase for anyone interested in Lego or just how machines work. It is beautifully crafted and an interesting and informative build. I built it with my six year old and he was fascinated throughout the process. Now a fully functioning toy, he still plays with it for hours every day. I recommend coupling it with the Power Functions kit to make playing with it even more enjoyable.
