Great build, minor quibble

By Roth

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Technic Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 (42043):

This is thus far a great build. I am a little over halfway through it right now, having just attached the tires and a few other parts. The minor quibble though, is about those tires. The instructions have you just putting the two rear tires right next to each other. This leads to the rear tires touching each other. That, as anyone with any trucking or CDL experience knows, is a HUGE no-no. A small spacer (the flat type used on the front tires to put the hubcap at a slight remove from the wheel) solves this. Other than that minor quibble, this has thus far been a rather entertaining build. Lots of steps, lots of parts, and an ingenious steering mechanism.

First Time Lego Builder

By Tescoman

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Technic Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 (42043):

I was looking to buy my grandson something for Christmas and started looking at Lego when I came across the Mercedes 42043 lorry. I wasn’t aware that Lego made this type of model and was immediately impressed. Not having made a Lego kit before and not knowing what to buy myself for Christmas I decided to treat myself. And I wasn’t disappointed. Once I got used to the manual and I got started it became very addictive but it still took me around 50 hours to build. Great fun and all the parts fitted well, the only draw - back being that there were a few bits missing and the time taken to get them sent from Denmark. However the support team at Lego were extremely friendly and helpful. Would recommend this to anybody who enjoys building kits. The best advice I would give to anybody building this kit is ‘don’t rush’ for if you get it wrong in the early stages it will be difficult to correct later

Just like the real thing, only smaller (sort-of)

By MasterBuilder84

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Technic Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 (42043):

Hands-down, one of the largest, most detailed, most realistic LEGO Technic vehicles I’ve ever assembled. It's clear that lot of attention to detail went into creating this model. The set has plenty of various moving parts to enjoy: moving engine pistons, dump bed (with locking tailgate â€" nice touch!), tilting cab, fully-functional clamshell arm, 8-wheel suspension, 4-wheel steering, and stabilizers. I’m happy to see the return to more and improved pneumatics! The realistic wheel chocks were a happy surprise. Do be careful how you “threadâ€� the pneumatic tubes in the clamshell arm base…it pays to be neat with how you route them. PROS: -Plenty of moving parts -Pre-cut pneumatic hoses -Realistic design and functionality -HOURS of building fun CONS: -No non-motorized building option -Loud motor (linear actuator is abnormally loud when the clutch kicks-in, unlike when the clutch kicks in for the other motorized functions) -Instructions could benefit from a few more close-up detail shots, especially when it’s time to thread the pneumatic tubes into the clamshell arm base -Steering seems like it’s under stress -Pneumatic pump seems undersized (takes a while to get things moving) SUGGESTIONS: -Make the dump bed pneumatic-powered -Ditch the compressor and use a manual pump for the pneumatics (they’re much more responsive and smoother-acting when I bypassed the compressor with a spare manual pump I had lying around)

Epic model - requires patience!

By SMiFFAD

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Technic Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 (42043):

This thing is huge, physically the biggest Technic model i've built and the most complex (currently half way through the 911 which i'm finding easier and more enjoyable!). It does get a little repetitive and arduous at times, its not a model for those who want a quick and exciting build but once you battle through the end result is satisfying! Some of the pipework routing in the manual is rubbish... you have to figure the odd bit out as its not clear in the instructions at one point, luckily its logical. One reason i bought it is its the modern version of kid 8868 which i had as a kid (and looks like a toy in comparison to this one!)

So great!

Comments about LEGO Technic Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 (42043):

This kit was a lot of fun to put together. I enjoyed the hours of fun. Great gift for self or anyone else. More than anything I'm so glad Mercedes-Benz licensed this...the details here are tremendous (like the extra mirrors for better visibility). I hope a fully-motorized version from the technic team comes out. (and/or instructions).

An amazing set for anyone, beginner or collector

By buildbricks

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Technic Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 (42043):

What else can I say apart from what has already been said? This is an amazing set, and as an Electrical Engineer whose Lego bug has just been rekindled, this was the ideal stepping stone for my transition to an AFOL (Adult Fan of Lego). It has superb details, amazing functions through an ingenious gear box, and absolutely HUGE play value. The sheer number of parts alone make this worth buying, let alone the sheer amount of customisations that can be applied to it. The set is quite big, bigger than what I was expecting. To give you an idea, you can see how big it is, next to the HULK. It even dwarfs the Star Wars UCS Tie Fighter (also shown in images). In terms of building, it took me longer than most as I would always start just before bedtime, which wasn't ideal as I nodded off a fair few times, which is not recommended as Technic pins and beams aren't the most comfortable pillows. I had to double back on my build at a few points as I wasn't paying attention, so it does need a bit of caution when building. It was just the right amount of challenge without it being too intricate or straightforward. To summarise, this is a fantastic set with limitless play value. It is highly recommended for anyone and will make a splendid addition to anyone's collection.

Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245

from Lego Technic fan

Comments about LEGO Technic Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 (42043):

When I bought this set, I was nervous of the very high price. However, I must admit that this set definitely worth every single dollar that I paid. The Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 is absolutely the best Lego set that I've managed to put my hands on. This set is huge and educational: it has penumatics,power functions, a gearbox, a mind - blowing steering system (which is totally unaffected by the suspension system) and a great design, featuring the masterfully sculptured front grille. There are so many small details which make this set unique, such as the small Mercedes Benz logo sticker on the steering wheel, the round shield with the Mercedes Benz logo printed on it and the beacons used for controlling the steering system. The instructions are clear, although that building the crane was quite challenging. (because of the penumatic tubing). Moreover, the set has many useful pieces and is a good base for MOCs. It' s actually very fun to move the truck around and drop some pieces in the container using the crane. This set has some cons, but very minor ones. I think that this set is the best Lego set that was ever created and that the designer made a great job in creating the set and copying the real Mercedes Benz Arocs.

Keep them coming

By PapaPenguin

Comments about LEGO Technic Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 (42043):

I've always loved building something functional and this product more than lives up to my expectations. I'd love to have the MK II Crane brought back (and feel free to upgrade it with the latest pneumatics).

Best technics model so far

By saahmad

from Karachi

Comments about LEGO Technic Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245 (42043):

I am an adult lego technic fan. i love building technic models much more than playing with them. the challenge is to motorize them and modify them. Arocs is the best construction model as the alternate model is equally challenging to build as the original model and not just a modification, with the exception of the drivers cabin. again the playability of the alternate model is more than the original ,just like the MK2 crane. it is challenging to build but easy to mechanize with the power functions so that it can move forwards/backwards and turn with a remote. the tubes etc of the pnuematics are a great improvement on the unimog where the ends of teh tubes became brittlle and tore after two builds. the only improvement for future that the designers can do is to modify the pnuematics so that the crane arms does not come down with a jerk but slowly drops !
