    This was my first Technic set. What a delight! Moving pistons in the engine and spinning fan. Gear system for steering. Gear system for opening and closing the jaws. Lever mechanism for raising the barrel. The movement of the finished model is smooth. It was lots of fun to build and a great intoduction to technic. The instructions were easy to follow and detailed. Instructions also included for the alternative build. Nice kit Lego.

    I think the mine loader is an interesting one. He is really short though as figured, but his features make this product worth it. The red tank he grabs kinda reminds me of a hazardous waste tank. The only negative was the price. I would of priced it at 30-40 due to the limited features, kind of wish the turn gray knob didn't stick out too much. All manual, with driving it and lowering the lift and manually opening the grabber. 30-40 may have seemed like a right price, but I still like him.

    Brought back some really good memories
    I would recommend this to a friend!
    Purchased for: Friend or Family Member's Child
    Its been 35 plus years since I have played with Lego. My cousin, (2 years younger than me), was born in Germany. Over in Europe, a person could buy Lego pieces by the pound, so needless to say when they brought it back to Canada, they literally had hundreds of pounds of it. My family would visit on the holidays, and all of us kids would be in the basement for hours building to our hearts content, (and staying out of the adults hair). Recently my cousin had passed away. I went out and purchased the Technic Mine Loader kit and my wife and I built it in four hours. It brought back memories and stories I will cherish forever. She really enjoyed being apart of the effort and we decided that building a set every few months would be a great team endeavour. At the funeral, I displayed the Lego model with the other items that family had brought in, and it really hit home with the rest of the family. I gave the kit to the brother of the cousin as re really appreciated the gesture. This last week, my wife and I bought the mine loader again to build the alternate model and purchased the R/C Tracked Racer for our enjoyment. The build time was shaved off by an hour, but it was a great night being together. She is looking forward to building the Racer, as she was never able to play with Lego when she was a child. Lego designers have really outdone themselves with a solid concept, enjoyable build, and their attention to detail. It's nice to take the night off from being an adult and enjoying each other's company. It woke up the kid in us, just that alone is worth the money.

    Another Great Technic Set.

    I decided to purchase this as its retiring soon, a real shame in my opinion. A really nice build and the colour scheme really looks the part. Also a surprisingly large model for the price. If you like Technic get this before it disappears!
