    Fun experience

    By banjobob

    from Federal Way

    Comments about LEGO Technic Excavator (42006):

    I enjoyed the build,didn't take as long as the recovery truck. Only problem was one of the cross pins that make up the elbow joint ,for the boom extension is the wrong one.instructions call for a dark grey pin with a blank spot 1/4 from the end. Because the surport pieces have a cross hole the hole length of the pin could't be ulitized,as needed. fortunaly I had extra from previous kits. I bought the power unit. It works well ,have to watch the action ,to stop each function before it hit the limt. There isn't any racheting if you over drive each function. But it look good and My grandson will have fun with it.

    This is my favorite Lego set

    By LittleRedToyota

    from Eidsvoll

    Comments about LEGO Technic Excavator (42006):

    I always wanted an motorised Technic escavator when I was a little girl, but never got one because they were expensive. So this was the first set I bought when I was an adult and earned my own money. Not THIS one, but it's "ancestor", who had a scoop instead of a claw. It kept me busy for hours and I enjoyed playing with it afterwards... can you imagine; a grown woman playing around with a remote controlled escavator in her livingroom... it was a childhood dream come true! In the later years, my husband and I have picked it apart and rebuilt it numberous times, just for fun. Poor thing is starting to get a bit worn, but I am sure it still has many years left. I am a little bummed that my husband won't allow me to clean out the cats litterbox with it though.... ;-) But I sometimes use it to refill the cats dry food.

    Comments about LEGO Technic Excavator (42006):

    New "claw" elements are very interesting. Nice intro model for Technic, great price. I also purchased the optional power functions set to bring the model to life. I wish Technic had models like this 30 years ago!

    AMAZING!!

    By legokid2017

    from ivanhoe

    Comments about LEGO Technic Excavator (42006):

    This is one my favorite sets that I have gotten. With this being my frist "big" Lego Technic set i had a little trouble at the start of the build but it was very interesting building the gear box section. This set has many freatures some of which are rotating 360, raising and lowering the arm, grabing parts with the grapple, and the ability to be motorized. Pros: awesome deisgn not to many stickers the grapple nice set for parts easy to add your own attachments. I have a made a drill, saw, shears, and a bucket for mine. able to motorize it Cons: it is a little slow moving the arm with the gears smaller than I would have liked quite complicated for frist time Technic builds can't do more than one thing with it at a time (Ex. opening the grapple and lowering the boom at the same time) This is amazing set and would recommend to any Lego fan!

    Better than expected, great design!

    By Brucopper

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about LEGO Technic Excavator (42006):

    This excavator set confirmed my status as a lego fan. I must admit, I purchased the excavator more as a fun build for myself than as a toy for my son, age 5. Clearly the set is too advanced for him to build alone but as a father son project it was awesome! I always buy sets that are "above" his age anyway and he has been able to build many of them with only minimal guidance. I had an original Expert Builder (8860) car set back in my day and loved the intricate gears, axles, engine movement etc and this excavator was my return to technic. What a fantastic set that is intricate, fun to build, well designed and true to life. We took our time over a period of days to build it and my two sons love playing with this! Although the build may be for older fans, don't think your kids won't play with this thing! Many fun hours so far, seeing what they can pick up and load into trucks. I added the power function motor kit and am glad I did. Highly recommend that. Great playability, colors, and function. The only cons may be the track coming off once in a while and power function switch not being fastened on very well. Also you need to find the best way to route the power wires to keep things tidy but there are many places to tuck them away. The gearbox and contol levers to change functions are ingenous. Cool watching how it all comes together during the build. You can see how the slip gears have dual functions and power different components when in gear. The "gearhead" in me loves this! So happy I got this set and the kids continue to play with it, so it is a win-win!

    Definitely recoomended!

    By zim1974

    from Tervuren

    Comments about LEGO Technic Excavator (42006):

    This being my second Technic product, I found this to be a really great product and a fun and interesting project to work on! - It is fun to create and build (not too easy and not to difficult with really clear guidelines if you pay proper attention to them) - The parts really fit together perfectly when you assemble them - It gives nice little surprises and discoveries when you find out how all the mechanics work - It is a beautiful model with high quality parts If I would have to give a point of improvement it would be that a few (only 4-5 on a total of over 700) parts have a very slightly wobbly surface or a slightly different color in the grooves (slightly orange yellow instead of yellow-yellow). It does not affect putting the parts together and both are not visible unless light shines on it from a specific angle, but if this would not have been the case I would have also given it a 5 for value for money. So overall, definitely recommended!

          My son is 15 and asked for this. Took him a few hours to put together. Works great. All pieces were there (though we have a bathtub-sized box with pieces, if it hadn't). I would recommend also getting the motor (Lego #8293). He's very happy with it.

            Comments about LEGO Technic Excavator (42006):

            I purchased this Lego kit for my 12 year old grandson because it uses the same type of pieces and connectors as the EV3, which he will receive for Christmas. I was right in predicting that working with this would prepare him for the EV3. And after Christmas when he gets the EV3, he can swap the sensors and power over to this and other Technic kits I got for him. Also it provides the extra pieces needed for creative designs to add to the EV3.
