    LEGO TECHNIC Bucket Wheel Excavator 42055 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 55.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cool, but slow I was excited to buy it, and I loved building it. I heard that it was cumbersome with the Power Functions XL motor, but that didn't matter to me. However, after building it and getting it up to speed, I found that it really isn't that fast or powerful. The motor glitches occasionally, it creeps and rotates excruciatingly slowly, and when attempting to dig any Legos, the wheel stops. This needs a more powerful motor to be able to use. Since Lego doesn't make a more powerful motor than what's included, you're stuck. All of the PF concerns aside, it looks fantastic. I would still recommend it for the building experience and the sheer size and presentation of the finished product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really fun, but a fatal problem It was a fun experience to build this fantastic model. But most the fun was distroyed when I turned on the switch. It was well at the beginning, but when the upper platform turn over half round, the whole platform was blocked by something. So I took apart the whole model and find that the single wheel under the platform was block by the tail of the base. I've upload some picture. the wheel is too close to the tail of the base. When all the weight turned to the rare, the upper part would be blocked Although there is a problem, but this design is amazing. I love it so much and maybe, I'll prepare to buy my second one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Massive Build! This set is both the largest in size and in piece count to any set in my current collection. I read the reviews and was a little deterred by all the comments about the motor being too weak but I decided to purchase anyway and see for myself. I'm glad I did! You have to understand one thing about this build - Don't RUSH! The trick to making everything work when you turn the power on is to make sure that once everything is together, and even during the build, that all parts are free moving and don't display a 'bind'; especially around the shovel area(s) and conveyor belt. If you can do that and put it together properly this set is sure to impress!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Time to Mine In one word, one big word, MASSIVE! This set is so big it is hard to comprehend the size of a real life one being any bigger. Also with so many pieces (including power functions) at such a low price this is probably the best valued set ever. If you are a budding engineer or just a technic fan this set is a must have. The little truck could have been a set in its self and i am so glad LEGO included it because it really completes the set, adding even more playability. I have a feeling any batteries I put in this thing are not going to last long though because it will be going round and around all day, at the request of my touch to please me most deeply. So just get it. If you want it, and I know you want it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant! Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this LEGO set, instructions are nice & clear & easy to follow. There are only 2 negatives, 1: Forward & reverse is quite jerky as is the bucket wheel. 2. The large LEGO pieces provided for the bucket wheel drop out the bucket late & miss the conveyor, they instead land between the wheel & the conveyor causing a jam, only the small pieces are suitable. This model makes the ultimate show piece in my display cabinet! I look forward to their next "big" creation! Oh...& I slightly modified the drivers cab to accommodate a construction mini figure even though he's not actually to scale, looks cool though!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible set with one big missed chance.. Overall this set can only be recommended, not only is it immense fun to build, great fun to play and looking absolutely impressive but it also is a great set for parts and let your creativity run wild.. my only critique with this set is the missed opportunity by Lego to unite it with the Lego City world.. this set almost perfectly fits into the City scale and would have been absolutely perfect with 1 or 2 construction worker minifigs thrown in as well as a proper Lego cockpit instead of the sad Lego Technic version of a cockpit, which also is very fragile in contrast to the rest of the set.. well maybe next time.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Massive Set - Probably Largest Technic set made. Pretty sure this is the largest technic set made by Lego to date. Purchased this set for myself and had a blast building it. What is powered versus is what is not, starting from Base up. Base moves forward and backward (Powered) Base Pivots left and right (Powered) Bottom Conveyor belt (Belt Powered - Swing is manually adjustable with knob) Top Digging Arm (Up and Down - Manually Adjustable with Knob) Top Digging Arm Conveyor and Bucket wheel (Powered) Top Digging Arm has Drive and Rotate controls on top Vertical tower has knob for adjusting Digging arm height (up and Down) Base has knob for adjust bottom conveyor belt swing from left to right along with a locking switch. Base also has a little tiny knob for deploying the side raid ladder (Detail is amazing). Overall dimensions from what i can see is 11 inches deep, 16 inches tall, and 28 inches wide. Weight is around 7.6 pounds for the digger itself. Set is a massive slow mover which is spot on with the actual digger in real life - Wanted to point this out so you are not alarmed once you put this set together and see how slow it moves, that is by design. The extra large motor is a neccesity for such a beastly set as this one. Inside the Giant Box - there are bags label from 1-8 Bags 1-3 are located in the White box within the packaging Bags 4-8 are loose in the big box There is a complete bag #4 of grey lego pieces that are used just for the playability and is supposed to simulate debris and conveyor belt debris/material for digging (Which is an awesome touch by lego I might add - Thanks Lego) The most intense part of the build is bag 6 (where you build the big bucket arm) I have added a 12 oz soda can to the pictures so you can get a better judgement of the scale of this set. The Mini dump truck is the same size as the mining truck from set 42035 if you are wondering. I would recommend getting the truck from that set too as it goes very well with this set. I was asked by a friend can you carry it by the tower top (as a handle) - Yes, you can although I feel uneasy doing it, it does seem to be very sturdy when I do carry it like that. Overall a very fun build and just massive and i do mean MASSIVE - Well Done Lego!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great job Lego Designers Just finished this project and I have to say. WOW! Can't believe how big it was once it was done. The detail all the way down to the "flood lights" was great. I enjoy the models with a lot of gears and motorized moving parts. So if you like lots of moving parts you will really enjoy making this Lego model.
