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 crane is awesome! My son who is 5 got it for Christmas. It is obviously way above his skill level of putting it together but he helped my husband. They has a blast building it together! He plays with it daily and it's very sturdy.

Comments about LEGO Technic Crawler Crane (42042):

My 11-year-old grandson loved the crane because of its complexity and the fact that you could make both a mobile tower crane and a crawler crane from the same set.

Crawler Crane

By scottsmith119

Comments about LEGO Technic Crawler Crane (42042):

My son received this lego for Christmas from his grand parents. He's only 7.... it was very challenging for him but he stuck with it and was very proud of his accomplishment. He did need our help, the pulleys and string were trouble spots for him! It took him about 4 days... off and on! He loves it!
