    This crane is the biggest with a record breaking 2,606 pieces. Many say this Lego set has the most pieces recorded on a Technic Lego set. When you hold the giant box, trust me its heavy. You can almost carry anything with this monster crane. So have fun. Oh one more thing, you need a lot of patience, it took me 3 and a half hours just to complete the main truck.

    I'm the odd one out here, seems everyone here is happy with 42009. Really can't say much more thats all ready been said about 42009. In saying that my experience with 42009 has been somewhat disappointing. Those annoying outriggers, could never quite figure them; I was left unhappy with it. Over looked build, no mistakes that I did, just mistake by that one Lego designer who made 42009. Those out riggers are just flawed , was that unhappy sold it to someone else to deal with the puzzle. Wile I enjoyed the build and like the look of it, I could not keep an model with a design flaw, sad to see it go happy that I no longer have to look at a paper weight. Shame that the outriggers spoil the whole model.

      A long fun build. Problem at the End

      By ecshuler

      from Saint Charles

      Comments about LEGO Technic Mobile Crane MK II (42009):

      This monster project will keep you occupied for a long time. On two subassemblies I had to hunt down a misplaced gear (out of about 50 gears). I loved doing that. Very rewarding to find the out the location of misplaced gear and fix it. What I didn't like was the string used to raise and lower the two arms of the crane. The instructions were useless. I never did figure out how to run the string. I would venture that only an expert Lego builder could get it to work. A big disappointment after so much work.

      Hands down, the best I ever had

      By Lupoca

      from Kingsville

      Comments about LEGO Technic Mobile Crane MK II (42009):

      If you buy this set, you won't regret it. While you're assembling it, you see tiny tiny pieces becoming something HUGE. Also, I should add that seeing how the mechanics work and interact with each other is tremendously satisfying, and what got me interested in engineering in the first place. To add, the little movable objects (such as the seats, the smooth turning wheel, engine, etc) makes it feel alive and just like the real deal. I should also point out that there were some missing pieces. Being such a large construct, it is completely understandable, and the first time it ever happened to me. But, even then, Lego showed a trustworthy customer support, by shipping them to my place with an apology letter. Definitely a must-have for Technic fans.

      Childhood dream finally came true

      By tchu

      from Vancouver

      Comments about LEGO Technic Mobile Crane MK II (42009):

      I was helping my daughter to build one of the Lego Movie set. And I got stuck on Lego, wanted to keep on building something bigger, more complex. So I chose this large Technic set which is the kind of build I dream about when I was a child. Getting real Lego set during my childhood times in the country I grew up in was a luxury item, let alone a huge set like this. Took me 2 Sat and Sundays to finish, it all went well following the instruction books(6 of them). I just made a couple mistakes that found after a few pages of steps but luckily it was easy to fix without taking it all apart. This is a very interesting design to use just 1 motor to power 5 different functions. For mechanical minded purpose, it's a good building experience. The finished product is big and probably weight couple kilogram. There is no easy place to grab to carry it. If you just grab the tires, you will easily disconnect 1 of the steering tie-rod(happened to me twice). I found that the best place to hold it is the side dark gray frame at about mid section(use both hands, 1 on each side). The loom seems reasonably sturdy but I haven't try lift heavy items with it extended all the way. My daughter and I have fun playing with it. I'm addicted now, will probably tear it down soon to build the alternate version. After that will tear it down again and I will try to get my daughter to build it. And next purchase might be 42030(the opposite of this set, lots of motors to power individual functions); or the mindstorm set 31313.

      Amazing Set!

      By camaromaniac427

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about LEGO Technic Mobile Crane MK II (42009):

      Was super excited to build this set when it came in the mail and I started on it right away. It was the first set I had ever purchased and built to have Power Functions. It was also the most challenging build to date out of all the sets I have but also the most rewarding when it was finished. It is a great addition to the several other large Technic sets I own. 5/5

      Great build, well worth the price. Like most sets, but this set especially, pay very close attention to the gears and placement of each. It's very easy to go through the motions and place a gear on the wrong side of a construction, only to discover 30-40 steps later you messed up.

      42009 Mobile Crane Mk II

      By TheBogan

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about LEGO Technic Mobile Crane MK II (42009):

      Now this set really is magnificent. It's the biggest Technic set ever as of late 2014, and probably will be for months if not years. It is 970 pieces bigger than the next one down, the RC Volvo front end loader. And yet it's about two thirds of the Volvo's price, which makes this set very good value for money. The fact it has only one motor creates this huge money difference. But to the crane. As I said, it's massive. Heavy, long and tall. The pull-back Desert racer would fit into it over 17 times.The main truck build is very dense, much denser than I expected. Most of the pieces here are structural, which creates a very strong chassis that resists twist and pull excellently. There are a lot of cogs and axles, however, and if not constructed properly will create a friction overload and seriously hinder power transferal to the outriggers to the point of their total malfunction. Even when built right, the lowering/raising of the outriggers is very slow but the torque is there, and when the set is placed so the 4 outriggers only are balanced on books on something, they can actually lift the entire crane. I also like the new red frictionless gears that enables an axle to slide within it. The cab of the truck is very nicely designed, with rear view mirrors, adjustable seat sand head rests, and a steering wheel. The V8 engine, concealed neatly behind the cabin, came as a great bonus. The 8-wheel steering works exceptionally well for a vehicle of this size, and functions smoothly even on the roughest terrain. The differential, too, works well and, by the way, is the very first thing you build. Moving up the crane to the superstructure, things get a lot more complex. We get scores of gears, string, a motor and linear actuators. If you don't pay very close attention, and get even one gear wrong, your set will just be one big Epic Fail. The gear box works pretty smoothly, and one is amazed that two levers control so many rows of gears, all worked out to the last tooth to produce just the right amount of torque and speed. For some reason people always ask if the rotation of the superstructure is motorised, and the answer is no. It is manual, but turns well and goes 360 degrees, which really enhances the crane's maneuverability and opens up new possibilities. The last stage of the crane is the crane itself, the arm. It is a particularly interesting build and is harder than you think. Stage 2 of the boom actually extends with stage 1, thanks to some very clever string manipulation. The extension tends to struggle a bit sometimes, however, especially when the arm is not raised or the load is particularly heavy. By the way, for an idea of how much it can lift, it can lift the Desert Racer, but that's about it. Not as powerful as I had hoped, and the boom raising/lowering needs a clutch, but they're my only real gripes. Overall, 42009 is a very authentic and functional set, which is great fun to build and play with. It is also perfect as a parts supply, with the crazy amount of gears, axles and bits you don't see in every set. It's the perfect ultra set for the experienced Technic builder looking for that something a bit better than the rest. It's value really is outstanding - the fattest Technic model by nearly 1,000 pieces, but doesn't stretch your pocket too much. A winner of winners...

      A good successor to 8421, but room for improvement

      By mbellis

      from DERBY

      Comments about LEGO Technic Mobile Crane MK II (42009):

      This crane has a lot to live up to, being the successor to 8421 and also a flagship set. Functionality and Play value: - 4-axle steering works well, but the rake is small. This is a common problem with Technic sets. A real crane of this number of wheels or more (e.g. 7 sets in the main body) can turn easily enough at a set of traffic lights but I doubt the 42009 model would make it round the corner at a scale junction. I removed the blue half pins from the front set of wheels and this made an improvement but the wheels are close to binding on other parts. You just know that if the instructions show half pins restricting the steering then it won't be enough. The steering philosophy of Technic sets needs to be improved. Look at 8479 barcode truck the best example. - Engine and differential gear are the usual fare. They work well. There might be room for a gearbox next to the vertical row of 5 z16 cogs. - The stabilisers are more realistic than 8421. More width of extension would be nice but the long axles and sliding cogs are a welcome improvement to the Technic range of mechanisms. My crane did have a problem getting enough torque to the mini-LAs for dropping the feet though. The white clutch gear slipped when that function was engaged. I think an extra instruction step to test the stabilisers from a temporary motor drive (before building the jib unit) might be a good idea. - The raising of the jib works well, though I have doubts about the linear actuator gearing. The design of the LAs has changed, to improve their internal clutch, but has this resulted in complacency of design by using the gear arrangement from excavator 8043 that failed with the old LAs? This is teaching kids bad engineering. We should be explaining to them why the gears should all line up so that all the LAs extend similarly as the jib is raised, without any differential movement between them. Otherwise someone will do that on a real machine and cause an expensive problem! Don't let poor design principles creep into LEGO sets! - The jib extension works OK but the ratio of extension to original length is poor. More extension from the same length should have been possible. As a follow-on to 8421, a further extension should have been included, otherwise Technic crane technology would not move forward. Of course real cranes can have 6 or 7 telescopic extensions with hydraulics, which would not be possible within a reasonable weight for geared Technic models. - The winch function works well but is a bit slow. - According to the jib gearbox, some of the functions need the motor direction to be reversed in order to make a consistent movement of the whole crane e.g. raise, extend and lower the hook. This makes operating the crane a learning process. Pros: - Stabiliser mechanisms are a useful development. - Stabiliser slide support with angled cross blocks is effective. - Red sliding z8 cogs and long axles. - Plenty of racks, 4x steering and doubled-up for stabilisers. - L-motor has plenty of power, but not as much as the 8421 motor. - Well-built chassis spreads the weight and remains stiff. - 2600 parts is a welcome increase in Technic set size. I look forward to Technic sets of 5000 parts! Cons: - I wish the yellow panel parts (6 on the jib) had not needed additional recessed holes. I hope these will not be needed again. Their design pollutes the population of excellent smooth panels that we have enjoyed in other sets. Unfortunately, once the parts are made, the mould will be used until it expires. I am unlikely to buy any set containing the revised panels unless they are really needed. - Stabiliser drop function can have torque issues if not tested before adding the jib. - Mis-use of linear actuator clutches to solve differential issue in jib raising gear trains. 8043 excavator lesson not learnt. - Needs more extension of the jib compared to its original length. I think this is an adequate successor to 8421 but some functions are not quite so good. Steering rake and jib extension ratio should be improved next time. Looks are not quite as good as 8421, partly because the wheel hubs are the other way round. Value for money is good in parts count terms. For the Mk III crane, in a few years' time, I would like to see a mobile crane using the Unimog wheels, with pneumatics for most of the functions. It would be possible to use pneumatics to drive all of them if extensions, rotating air engines and proportional steering techniques were employed; this would certainly add to the Technic range of mechanisms. It would need several compressors. I would like to see the return of a motor like the 8421 motor as it is more powerful (torque x speed) than the Power Functions motors and more suitable for driving high loads quickly. I have seen a real mobile crane with 7 sets of wheels in the main body, 3 steering at the front and 2 at the back, with a 4-wheel trolley carrying the counterweights. Time to start the design now! An additional small crane for lifting counterweights onto the back of the jib would be an opportunity for a realistic additional mechanism to offset the cost.
