Great new addition to the lego technic range. Instructions are clear and precise in a single booklet and all parts have been grouped in numbered bags to assist in the build sequence. The gears, pulleys and drive system for the tracks is well set out and provides the builder with some understanding of mechanics (thats the education bit done with) back to the fun side, powered systems are forwards & backwards driving, rotating body, lifting & lowering of the main boom and cable up & down, the claw is manual. Easy to operate and fun piece to play with. This is not a complicated build and would be suitable for somebody wishing to try the technic range out as a new adventure. For experienced technic builders there are some new parts and a reworking of mechanics & frame to make it an enjoyable build, plus its blue. This is a welcome change from the standard yellow issue for construction equipment and makes a great feature piece in the construction set. Scale sits well with recent models.

The build was relatively easy and I enjoyed the experience, however like most Lego sets it wasn't enough building it, I needed to make it better. So I carefully deconstructed parts of it to figure out how to make it better, my solution, albeit doesn't match the colour scheme, I think would be a welcome addition to Lego itself. I took the main boom and repositioned it further back and higher up (to use it as a Derrick boom- for counter balance), I then proceeded to raid my extensive Lego collection for the appropriate parts to make a new main boom, and luffing jib (the extension piece at the top of the main boom). After spending almost an hour routing button twill( heavy thread) through all of the pulleys and winch components, it was time to erect.

      Comments about LEGO Technic Crawler Crane (42042):

      This was enjoyable through and through. The last and only crawler crane Lego came out with before this was small (piece-wise) and hokey-looking. This is a considerable upgrade on all fronts--almost twice the pieces, amazing design, power functions included, and a fairly challenging build when placed side-by-side with other Technic sets of similar size. I really like a challenge and, while most of the build was fairly simple construction, I enjoyed the cabling part because it required two people to assemble and adjust properly and was kind of a pain in the butt.

      Really, my only gripe would be that it's a little too slow. I mean, I know it's a "crawler" crane, but this takes that word to almost a whole new level. I would also like to see something like this with RC functions. However, the manual controls are really straight-forward and easy to adjust.

      Definitely my favorite Technic set to date!

      We bought this for our sons 11th birthday and he absolutely loved it. It took him a few days to build. He was so proud after getting it done. The instructions were easy to follow. We didn't have to help him at all. Great gift for a boy who lives to build things. It's a little pricey but they were kind enough to price match it from another store.

      Best Operating Technic Yet

      By LEGOPappy

      from Medina

      Comments about LEGO Technic Crawler Crane (42042):

      I have built most of the larger Technic models. Excavators, large crane truck etc. but this one is the best operating model yet. It is easy to use and hasn't fallen apart. I think part of the reason for this is that it uses cross bracing to stabilize the model. This is also the first model I have built that uses the small gray spacer. The color and height sets it apart from the other models in my collection. I want to add remote control to it and motorize the claw. This is a good one to start with.

          Comments about LEGO Technic Crawler Crane (42042):

          I had been looking for awhile at picking up a larger Lego set that included some power functions. This set is great. The build was all at once fun, challenging and educational especially when you get to build the variable four speed transmission that operates all of the different functions. I also love the fact that these Technic sets give you the opportunity to tear down and rebuild the set as something different. In this case it is another crane with essentially the same functions.
