Week TechVideo, 2009 #30 - 8258 under review

Despite not exactly according to the editorial line aimed for this section (TBs TechVideo), but attending to a suggestion made today into the comments and to the fair play always put in the posts written here at TBs , lets enjoy the new 8258 (Crane Truck) beauty in action.

It is part of a detailed review dedicated to the same set, published at Setechnic. Although you need some ability to read French, rely on some automatic translation tools, or just enjoy the pictures with the impressive details of this set.

Edit 1:
Another 8258 review was added at EuroBricks awhile ago by Starstreak. This one in English!
You may read it here.

Edit 2:
As found at Lugnet yet another 8258 review, by Jean-Marc. Read it here.
Who also made some nice adaptations to this model, as you may find here.

Thanks for posting it! It makes the waiting a little bit easier. And it is always a good thing to brush up my french.....

Ah, now I see why this set, unlike the 8292 Cherry Picker and the 8297 Off-Roader, uses an XL motor and not an M: it struggles to move the arm's "elbow"!

I believe this is as complex as LEGO can mechanically go: to incorporate more functions in the arm, like telescoping and winch, either arm-mounted pneumatics or electric motors would have to be used. Which returns us once again to the issue of Power Functions S-motor and pneumatics... ;)

The XL is also necessary to control 2 functions at the same time. ;)

PS : thanks to have shown my video. :)
