88668 review for an awesome set! But still, this is a great set and one of my all time favorites, and you made a great review which it certainly deserves. When the sticker is in right spot, let it dry and it will stick. Posted January 17, edited. A weight brick is also provided, only seen in one other Technic set, the Backhoe. No, many new Lego sets provide spares for the smaller pieces. The newer rubber belts are more elastic, inwtructions I don’t know when they first appeared in this set my copy was a one.

I would even say it would be worth an Unimog on its own! Although the cylinders in earlier sets originally had yellow top whereas this has a black topthey were otherwise identical to this. Take a look at my studless interpretation of what it might have looked like today! The average used price on Bricklink is as well.

After being introduced to the wonder that is the Lego pneumatic system with sets like BackhoeUniversal Pneumatic Set and the Power Cranethis set raised the bar even further. Here you can see the gears for the engine 24Tand the input axle for the steering 8T. Speaking of battery box, here istructions is.

I used a too long piece somewhere earlier, I cannot see a way of making the B-model without additional tubing. Isntructions an interview somewhere? Too bad you’ll have to cut the tubing twice to make both models, but maybe pneumatic tubing was cheaper in Are you satisfied with this Lego product? It is the set that pulled me out of my dark-ages into AFOL-hood. There is also two differentials, and a Steering pulley to drive the compressor.


The main model works fantastic, looks almost like a real truck, and is as solid as a brick. I’ve labeled all the hoses to remember what color they are in the leho.

After my return from my dark ages, I have located most of the parts from my oldand all the pneumatics work. I Love this set, the only one for instructiins that a proper compressor, mine is till on a shelf right behind me form my childhood, stayed in the loft during my dark ages only to be removed and worked first time, the only lebo I have is the turntable is not that quick, but other than that amazing.

I recall that the original tubing wasn’t cut and just came in a single long piece. They sit on 20×30 rims.

They have so many uses. Prev 1 2 Next Page 1 of 2. When I built this model, I realized how you have to cut the original tubing to fit.

They only serve aesthetic purposes in this set, but it is possible to upgrade the set with Air Tanksavailible as of with the Pneumatics Add-On Set. The hoses are carefully routed instructkons the turntable. Please try our search function first.

Turning the trans-yellow HOG steers the truck. You need to be a member in order to leave a comment. Cab finished, moving on to the arm.

Posted January 18, I could do with the instructions for One year later my wife followed me to Denmark to work at the Lego company.

The bed is nearly finished, and you can see the battery box where the sleep cabin normally would be. The turntable in this model is actually pneumatic driven. You can buy the tanks separately on Bricklink for about 7 Euros each. The 9v engine driven compressor system produces air constantly and the only thing you have to do is controlling like in real life by the four valves settled on the sides.


The verdict The main model works fantastic, looks almost like a real truck, and is as solid as a brick.

I’m in the middle of making a multi function contraption. I did not realise I had seven large pneumatic cylinders, a smaller one and I also have the parts to make a insrtuctions which i am using now. The big black brick in the back left is the counterweight. A fake air tank is placed on each side. Even the rubberbands still hold up, 20 years later!

The frame for the crane is built as a separate unit, then placed on the turntable. It was literally packed with pneumatics, featuring an electric air pump no, the Unimog wasn’t the first one to have thisworking rotating claw with operator’s cabin, and an engine of course.

Axle connectors hadn’t been invented yet. Compared with some other sets from that age, it doesn’t look too bad at all.

The pneumatic boom leo is a great function, and I like that both rear axles turn a differential. The pneumatic functions are a joy to use, and this remains as my most played-with set to date.

Getting the tubing fed through the turntable, and in the right positions was a headache – even for an adult. I only miss a steering wheel, even if it was a dummy. The transparent tubing is the heart of the system, and runs to all the switches soon to be placed.
