LEGO Technic 8069 Backhoe Loader / Telehandler (Forestry Loader)

Lego-Technic-8069-Backhoe-LoaderLEGO Technic 8069 Backhoe Loader is one of most versatile sets in the medium size. Released in 2011 and remains highly sought after mainly due to playability factor involving tons of functions. The A model is a Backhoe Loader and 8069 B model is a clever Telehandler. Both A and B models have been cleverly constructed and present medium to high difficulty level hence aimed at 10-16 year old.

There's tons of features in Technic 8069 Backhoe Loader set. For the number of bricks (609) it is hard to believe how much function has been created. New parts include clever and compact linear actuators, four of them, that power the digging equipment. Amazingly, together with smart build, they allow for full digging motion for front and back bucket, as you'll see in videos below.

When assembled the both LEGO Technic 8069 are quite large so you know you get your moneys worth. Also the B model uses about 90% of the A model parts, the downside is that manual has to be downloaded from LEGO website. Many people complain about this forcing people to visit the website to get the second part of 2 in 1, which is promised on the box.

LEGO 8069 Backhoe Loader is a visual stunner with its yellow&black construction color scheme, few stickers further visually enhance the model and are worth sticking on.  The build for both models takes as quick as 2 hours for very experienced user and presents certain (welcomed) challenge.

There is no point for me to drag on about the features of LEGO Technic 8069 Backhoe Loader, videos below really well show what it is about. Here's a quote I found on a review that pretty much sums it up "Its really worth pestering your parents for, especially your Dad because you know He's going to want to have a go!" It's a truly technical marvel so i can only highly recommend it, get your hand on it!
