This set is one of the greatest lego technic sets I've seen. 1. It looks really good. It looks like a real service truck. 2. You open the panels on the side to access the controls, just like on a real truck. 3. It features pneumatics and to different motorized telescopic arms. 4. It is very cool to build because the technic is build in red and recovered by green pieces. 5. it has got 7 different functions; 4 motorized, 2 pneumatic and 1 manual. 6. the interior is very detailed and features a steering-wheel, seats, doors that open, info panels and side-mirrors. This isn't all. But I will not reveal more. If you like building and/or playing, this is definitely a set for you.

Although the service truck has a sleek look, it just doesn't deliver for the high price, I would think possibly $100 would be fairer. Compare it to the #8109 Flatbed Truck with wheel lift from year 2011. That was $89 USD and although smaller in size, but the same scale as this Service Truck, it had many features similar to this truck, just without a useless, in my estimation, crane arm. I don't like the fact that as you raise the crane arm and hook onto a vehicle with the wheel lift, the wheel lift raises much too high. However, the alternate model truck with the grappler and trailer is the best use of this set,, BUT then you have to download or print (and most of us don't have room to build in front of our computers) 299 pages. Its too bad Lego doesn't include alternate instruction manuals in larger sets any longer. 299 pages is kind of over the top as most pages just have steps involving only very few parts unlike the main model instructions where the manuals offer steps with many parts to attach, thereby reducing the manuals to much less pages as opposed to the alternate model instruction 'manuals'.

    Father and Son Project

    By Texadan

    from San Antonio

    Comments about LEGO Technic Service Truck (42008):

    Excellent Father and Son project. My son is 12. I marked that it took 6 days to complete the project. We did not work constant on the project. My guess would be 5 to 6 hours a day. But we had a very good time together workin on this. We did have a couple of complaints. Some of the pictures of where parts are to be placed arent very good. Some explanations are lackin. The parts bags were not numbered as they are in other kits. We opened ALL the bags and separated all the parts and put them in containers to make it easier for us to find the correct parts needed for each step. The only changes I would make is havin the bags numbered as with other kits and some of the illustrations could be a little better. Other than that I think its a very good kit for some Father/Son time. This kit being the most complicated we have done together but not the only kit period, we both had a good time with it. A lot better than my son in 1 room with electronic games of some kind and me in the other room wonderin if his brain is not gettin fried.............

        A lot of clicky-clacky but an overall good experie

        By matiasvad

        from Aarhus

        Comments about LEGO Technic Service Truck (42008):

        There are plenty of functions, which really baffled me compared to the much huger 42009 Mobile Crane MK II. The complexity of the build is not a high as the 42009, but it's more dense and focused around the gearbox. Using the power functions requires a attention if you want to avoid a to of clicking, but even though, when using one of the functions with the pneumatics you will need to hear the clicking for it to operate correctly. The pneumatics are my favorite part of this set, having never seen it in action before.

          Comments about LEGO Technic Service Truck (42008):

          I enjoyed building this, especially the gearbox area. The clutch gear is not used for the stabiliser and main boom causing the some jumping of the gears if they reach the end of their stop.

          Very Impressed, a few minor flaws

          By BillyMills

          from Detroit

          Comments about LEGO Technic Service Truck (42008):

          I really liked the finish product of this model and it has probably been the most enjoyable Technic Model I've built yet. The towing arm is very intricate and complex with multiple automated functions. The truck's frame is built around the arm and its mechanics and its dimensions are probably the reason why Lego choose to make this a semi-truck tow truck and not a regular tow truck. The finished model is pretty big and will take up a fair amount of shelf space, but unlike some Technic models that feel hollow on the inside there isn't a lot of "empty" space in the model and it feels very compact for its size and functionality. The few flaws i found were that the steering was "clicky" and not very smooth and I also believe that my kit was missing one minor piece that caused me to make a small cosmetic alteration.
