Wife got me this Lego Technic mobile truck crane set

https://www.lego.com/en-us/product/mobile-crane-42108

You build it in three stages and it has almost 1300 pieces. I’ve got five hours into it so far and completed two of the build stages. It’s definitely more advanced than my normal Legos from when I was a kid but I’ve enjoyed the process a lot.

I’ve got my eye on the Volvo ADT next and then the mack daddy Leibherr R 9800

So what's the "Flat Rate Manual" say for assembly time?

When you have it done maybe you could sell it to CO! He's always seems to need a new machine.

it’d be the cheapest machine for him to own and operate!

i don’t know flat rate but it took me about 8-9 hours.

Well for those who don't have one here's a demo video:


Even found a comparison video with a track mounted crane!

JD955SC now needs to get one of those on order!

How do these people think posting advertisements on a thread about a Lego toy crane will get them sales of major commercial shredders?
