Rated 5 out of 5 by from Forklift Model This was a great model to build. It had the right amount of gears and motion parts to keep you on your toes. I like to combination of yellow, blue and black pieces. Very realistic. Upon completion, my grandchildren ( and me) enjoyed playing with it. I brought out my other construction Technic models so we could all enjoy the moment. I bought a second model to either have 2 forklifts and to build the tow truck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good build. Overall, a good building experience. Not the most technically challenging of a build. Only real complaint would be the back isn't quite finished, leaving an exposed engine. Would've been nice to see a covering. The play functions are easy to use. The exhaust pipe controls the steering, the beacon light raises/lowers the forks, and the tilt is controlled by two levers on either side of the cab. The pallet that comes with the build can easily accommodate different cargo. I haven't had a chance to try out the second build, but expect it to be good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The second best of the new Technic sets this year I was not going to get this set originally, so glad I changed my mind. It is the second best of the new Technic sets released in the summer of 2018. The build was straightforward and not at all difficult. Once you build it the fun starts. The lift works well, and the tilt of the forks is really well done. The rear steering may be accurate, I have never driven a real fork lift. The pallet with its container on it can be replaced with all sorts of other things, I have been taking the brick heads for rides on it lately. The fork lift can actually be lifted by the new crane. All in all, it is fun to play with the forklift, I have not disasembled it and made the alternate build yet, I will do that once I have a chance to do so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value I bought this for my son and he decided that we should build the B-model. So "we" did. It was really good and fun to build. Really really good value for the money, it's almost too cheap! And the B-model could easily be an standalone, it's sturdy and good to play with too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lego Heavy Duty Forklift! Lovely set, great time messing around with it, and it inspired me to work on a LEGO Nuclear Reactor MOC. 10/10, will definitely try to buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fun mid-sized Technic build! My toddler asked for a “real forklift” at the beginning of the summer and my wife casually said “your dad will make you one.” Luckily LEGO releases this set and it satisfied my son’s request. This was a fun, satisfying build. I love the added challenges of the Technic set and that they seem to be Moreno durable for playing with afterwards. The gears are awesome and keep my son engaged throughout the build. Can’t really say how long this would actually take someone to build since while I’m doing most of the actual “building,” my son is getting me the parts and “clicking” them together. I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a fun, medium sized build or for someone interested in construction themed sets. The finished product Looks great! Happy building!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Forklift, Small flaw I'll first start off in general saying this is a great forklift and good playability. I must say there is a flaw with the forks and little string. When you try to lift the tan piece with the hazard material on it. You'll notice the front of the fork leans forward due to the weight, so it slides off once you go too high. It looks like the string is the only thing keeping it attached to the mast. t's still a fun set though.
