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'.

A great, challenging product, many power functions

By Francois

from MONTREAL

Comments about LEGO Technic Service Truck (42008):

This is the most complex model I have built until now. The gear section is quite complex and very compact. The number of functions is quite impressive. I was dubious about air piston but they did work. The color scheme is great. I usually dispended from adding the decals but for this product I have added all of them. The decals does help to remember what levers does what. I did enjoyed myself quite a lot I do a few points that could be improve: 1) In the second instruction guide (6070890.pdf), at page 38 â€" in the upper left section of the page. You are adding some kind of lever. I did not understand the purpose until I stated using the power functions. I then realize it was some kind of “brakeâ€� that would insert in the spoke of the gear so it would lock the gear of the winch so would it not drop the load. The purpose of the brake should be explain. Again about the same lever, the connector as no friction so it always keep dropping on gear of the winch thus you have to hold it yourself when using the winch to lower the hook, if would not then it stop the gear. I have solve this issue by changing the gray frictionless connector with a black connector with friction so when I use the winch, I move the lever out ways of the gear and when I finish move the brake on the gear. 2) Speaking about the winch, the hook is so lite, when you use the winch to lower the hook the cable just start unraveling around the spooler so you need to pull on the hook or attach some weight to it. Maybe the next could version of hook, a steel ball could added to it so it would more weight. 3) The front of cab (the part covering the radiator) of the truck is quite fragile, so you should never hold the vehicle by front section so maybe there could a ways to make it more robust All in all, again a great model, challenging, many power functions, lot fun to build and also I did learn a few things in terms of mechanics. . I am looking forward so see a new product with the same challenge My next product is the plane. Long live Lego

          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.
