Description of modification package

General information

With the release of this Crane Truck, the Lego Company shows – today – one of the most appealing Technic Lego sets. Especially the exterior of truck and the very realistic operating crane arm.

However, to my opinion the set needs some small and easy to apply improvements which I like to share. Applying these changes will definitely increase the playability of this fantastic model.

Modifications

The modifications are categorized into 3 area’s:

CRITICAL: many customers noticed that the original set sometimes ‘crunches’ the 12 th tooth bevel gear nearby the XL motor drive-shaft. This can be solved by applying ALL these critical modifications.

IMPROVED PLAYABILITY: modifications who will contribute to a more effective usage of the technic functions.

APPEARANCE: only ‘cosmetic’ modifications.
