Great set!

By stinkygreen7

from Undisclosed

Comments about LEGO Technic Volvo EW160E (42053):

Great Lego set! Good if you want to get into Lego Pneumatics. I love the little features such as the dozer blade and outriggers. It really looks like the real thing with all the stickers and the lifting cabin. One drawback: when you add the power functions lights, the cabin becomes hard to lift. Otherwise, a great Lego Technic set!

Comments about LEGO Technic Volvo EW160E (42053):

This set is an absolute joy to build. I loved the anticipation of finding out how the pneumatics will work and I was not disappointed. The hand pump works exceptionally well. All the functions work together seamlessly. My little boy (4 yrs old) is loving it.

Rather simple but joyful set.

By Taris

from Woodridge

Comments about LEGO Technic Volvo EW160E (42053):

Excavators were always one of favorite Technic theme and it will be forever. This set is one of many LEGO Technic excavator set and delivers what really Technic stands for. First of all, for the price, this set provides decent list of functions. The main function, the boom+arm operation is adequately implemented with limited number of parts. I would like to have regular bucket type hand (which may require three regular sized pneumatic cylinders) but having a little cylinder isn't too bad in terms of part collection. The wheels doesn't have any drive-trains, differentials, or any shock absorbers but they have steering system with least backlash I've had. Yeah, the steering works like charm. One gripe is that you need to always press the blue button to power the pneumatic cylinders (or air cylinders) to operate the boom structure. It's ok to have some chore but the superstructure is not so rigidly fixed for a furious pumping action. So, I recommend always lowering the outrigger when you operate it. But, here's another catch: the outrigger doesn't work well on uneven (like carpet) surface. The panels actually open and reveals the pneumatic hoses. You know, those hoses always slide off or at least loses pressure. So, you need to tighten those hoses time to time. The 'Maintenance Mode' (See one of pictures) helps a lot. The cabin elevation is also a nice bonus but one thing I would recommend is to lose the small 2-stud sized blocker at instruction step 107 if you're not planning to motorize it. With the blocker, the superstructure can only turn like 355 degree. I guess this limitation is due to power function integration. You don't want damage cables. In term of building experience, the difficulty is not hard at all but not too easy since the small superstructure packs all the pneumatic hoses and some gears to operate the cabin elevation. But then again, putting it together is a breeze compared to applying stickers. Yes, the real letdown of this set is the stickers. You need really really carefully apply stickers unless your excavator would look weird at least. Especially the back lights(red lights) are literally stickers!! So, you need to apply them exact fit positions or your excavator would look weird. Also, some stickers needs to be removed when you're planning to make B-model which is a kind of a bummer... However, it's much more playable with the excavator arm, anyway. You can challenge a friend to carry out Skittles or M&Ms distribution. Note that the arm reaches below the wheels!! Must be fun to dig out some Skittles from a secret labyrinth, right? Overall, it's a nice playbility/price set and a good source of pneumatic cylinders if you don't want to buy the humongous 42043 Arocs truck.

Great set

By Bowler4Lyfe

from Mankato

Comments about LEGO Technic Volvo EW160E (42053):

I purchased this when it first game out. Let me tell you this guy fails to disappointment. It's not really hard, It's just that it can get a little crammed with all of those bendable tubes. I collect the Technic sets and this set fits perfect with the others. the three switches in the back handle the arm and bucket. It turns around manually and the front blade (Bulldozer) and supporting arms (end) are manual. It's also cool the cabin lifts up as well. The Volvo EW160 is well worth the money, and I can guarantee this is worth getting.
