The LEGO Technic Backhoe Loader (8069) features:
  • Realistic bucket and backhoe functions: raise, lower and tip

LEGO originally got its name from founder Ole Kirk Christiansen by combining the Danish words "Leg Got" that means "play well," and later realized that the word LEGO in Latin translates to "I put together". The LEGO set became a standard of creative play for children around the world, unlocking the creativity to build vehicles, buildings, cities and more. The invention of the LEGO wheel had the same monumental effect in the history of LEGO, making it possible to create cars, trucks and eventually the LEGO train building set that is one of the most successful LEGO sets of all time. LEGO Technic was created in 1977. LEGO Technic designers have approximately 1,000 different elements to choose from when building models, and 8 different standard colors. LEGO brings to the market a range of product lines such as LEGO Atlantis, LEGO City, LEGO Creator, LEGO Duplo, LEGO Harry Potter, LEGO Hero Factory, LEGO Power Miners, LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Technic, LEGO Toy Story and LEGO World Racers.

i love this set!! my favorite part about the backhoe is probably the excavator arm in the back. It includes 4 new mini linear actuators (grey pump things) which are very powerful. The main functions are the stabilizers, front bucket, back digging arm, and steering, all of these work very well. Also, if you have a big pile of 1x1 studs, it's ten times as fun. here pros and cons. PROS many functions big bucket knobs blend in great stabilizers lift back wheels off the ground new linear actuators CONS back digging arm moves side to side all the time i recommend this to any lego technic fan!!

Not a full functioning set as the real thing. They got it right with the 8043 and 8055 sets but not this one. Sets need to be as realistic as they can be and this is close but not real. Love the new selection of parts.

        way smaller than the extreme cruiser

        By ihscoutmaster

        from berthoud

        Comments about LEGO Technic Backhoe Loader (8069):

        to start off, I think this set is a tad overpriced, since without the large bucket, It's like half the size of the extreme cruiser (which I also did a review on). It's nice to get a set that's got as much funtionality as some of the other construction technic sets, but is actually in my price range, since it doesn't have any power functions. However, the turning of the gears is kind of annoying, but they work fine. Also, unless you're taking the whole set apart, DON'T TAKE OFF THE BACKHOE ASSEMBLY, EVER! You have to take the whole thing apart to get it back on! You have been warned. Despite my modding reputation, I just left this thing alone, despite widening the front axles a bit and turning around that dark gray piece on each spindle assembly that limits the turning radius. You don't have to sacrifise any looks, it just helps make the turning radius smaller. Overall, this thing is a decent buy and the liftarms that operate the front and rear buckets are pretty cool. IH scoutmaster out!

        Great set!

        By Cembaloingrid

        from Bergen

        Comments about LEGO Technic Backhoe Loader (8069):

        I'm very impressed with the details - the movable parts are constructed very much like the original machines. There is even this little lever in the drivers cab that moves with the largest bucket going up and down - wow! I'm also impressed with how the design gives an impression of a solid vehicle, using mainly just a lot of beams. The b-model also works very well. As a building experience I enjoy both models over and over again. My 2-year-old son and my husband loves playing with them in between the builds. Pure enjoyment!

        A GOOD SET ?

        By asdthop

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about LEGO Technic Backhoe Loader (8069):

        I found this prouduct an extremely fun build. With lot's of moving parts it has no problems,but was lifeless and boring. So I added 2 XL motors to drive. One small motor to steer and a few other motors to run the bucket. The wheels were terrible.So I stuffed some smaller tires inside, but the they need more tread. I love the rack and pioin steering. I would reccommend this if you have motors and more gears.

        8069 Fun to build, but not to play with

        By arief

        from Bontang

        Comments about LEGO Technic Backhoe Loader (8069):

        The Lego 8069 series was fun to build. It has more than 500 pieces, which makes it very enjoyable during the building. Several new parts also makes it very interesting. In addition, this series has many movable parts. In my opinion, this series is one of the lego technic series with the most number of movable parts. The shape is also very similar with the actual unit. However after the building, I found that the series is not very much fun to play with. Each of movable part needs extra spin to move it from one point to the maximum.

        The Next Favourite Set In 2011 Line

        By ihavenoname321

        from Pisa

        Comments about LEGO Technic Backhoe Loader (8069):

        This is the biggest of all my Lego set. Ok, lets go to the review. The box The box is quite large, the front show the set with black background and the functions. The back show the alternate B-model, where you got the instructions (sure in Lego.technic.com), and the functions. Inside the box When I opened the box, I saw a lot of plastics bags, 2 building instructions, 2x 68.7x34 tires, 2x 81.6x38 tires, and a large large bucket. The instructions The instructions come in 2 books, there are 77 steps. The build The build is quite long. I finish this baby in couple of hours. First, like the all Technic set, we begin with plenty beams and axles combine together. We start with build the front-under and the steering system. We continue build the steer-stand and the system to tilt the front bucket. We mess with plenty of beams right here. We attach it and continue to step 12 when almost finish the whole steering system. After that, we build the system that make the steering pivot from horizontal to vertical way. We attach it with the help of 4 pin locks in. We continue building the rear wheels pivot. And then we gonna build the rear mini-bucket mechanism. To turn left and right the bucket, to tilt the bucket, that all right here in this steps. Now we build the "engine"-hood that can be opened and closed. We now attach it and build the front lamp. Now we switch to the front bucket. After the long steps in the bucket moving system, we build the chair. And we switch to the rear bucket moving system, again. And we continue to book 2. After finish the rear bucket, we build the stabilizer, the roof, and the spatbor. We attack the front bucket, set the wheel, and Voila !! The Backhoe Loader is finish. Now pRoS and CoNs time ! Pros: Quite massive model. I like the mechanism. Nice steering Nice stabilizer. Cool tires. Cons: The design is kinda untidy. The steering (for model-B) is kinda weird. Oops, my time is up. This is great model. Highly recommended for pre-advanced Lego builder.
