It contains 10 pieces that build up a spotlight. A lot of juddering on the turns due to flat tread of tires.

Curved tread gives best driving performance on turns. Lower the stabilizer legs, rotate the superstructure through 360°, operate the lifting winch or send the extendable boom a meter into the air. Select upper and lower crane mode for complete control over an array of easy-to-operate, motorized functions.

Open the storage compartments to access the chains, tools and fire extinguisher.

I spent a couple of hours each night building it. As a crane it is a fitting replacement for 42009, it is more complex and a lot of fun. It has some features which that crane has, some that 42042 has, and it adds a longer boom. Like 42042, everything runs off of one motor and it is a brilliant instruction on how to use one motor to drive multiple systems, this in itself made me like the crane.

There is a lot more to like about this besides its elegant use of transmission of power. However, the build does not feel overwhelming at all. The instructions are split into two books and the parts are sorted into 13 sections. Finding parts this way is not too daunting. Total build time for me was about twenty hours split over three days. This one won’t tangle and the cable unwinds and winds back onto the spool by a very clever use of two pulleys that travel on axles. Certainly value for money & a great improvement on 42009.

I also think that the building is a lovely added feature to finish off the crane. This beats all previous cranes, including 42009, hands down. The actual build is quite simple in parts, but in others is very complex, but as always the build instructions are superb. The parts are split into 13 sections, each of which takes more or less one hour to construct, which lends itself to the build being spread over several sessions of one to two hours over several days. All of this is enabled through a very clever gearbox via the selection of the appropriate action with easy to operate, but positive, switches. With the boom fully extended and upright (a full metre high – 20 centimetres higher than the 42009 boom) the cable, when fully wound out, ensures that the hook rests exactly on the ground. The manual steering is nicely positioned at the rear of the vehicle to both steer and propel the vehicle and, again, a very nice detail is the small rubber wheel provided as the steering wheel which enables very easy manoeuvrability of such a large vehicle. Although the latter is probably in keeping with the real thing, the action of the triple boom is very pleasing and perhaps a little “poetic licence” could be allowed?
