42114 - 6x6 Volvo Articulated Hauler

Recommended Posts

There seem to only be 2193 pieces. It's small for a flagship. The price of the Control+ sets is only for the motors.

2x C+ XL and one similar to LEGO ® Spike 45602

Good news to have a non-edu source for Spike motors! I suppose they are in a more neutral color... I hope LEGO keeps the 0° position marking.

@jrx What tires are used on the hauler? Are they the new ones from the Batmobile or are they the big ome as on the Volvo loader?

Or the chevron tread tyres? Rare I know, but they have been used on haulers in the past.

It opens toward drivers cabin

Big wheels - but don’t ask if Loader Tires or those from Class :wall:

Did a quick test in stud.io and the 94.3 x 38R fits quite well...

Hi, I'm nearly back from Nuremberg and wrote down all my experiences at https://www.lc-jrx.com/en/2020/01/28/news/lego-technic-summer-sets-2020-552.html

About the motors in 42114: I counted three motors. 2x C+ XL and one similar to LEGO ® Spike 45602

Mudgards from Land Rover in yellow.

So @Zerobricks was right after all - it has 3 new differentials.

Can you try that setup with the Class tyre

Sadly no, this tire isn't implemented in stud.io... But I guess it would touch the fender.

42030 had 1635 parts, but I agree that at first sight it seems small for a flagship. What are the impressions of those who have seen the model in the flesh compared to other models such as the Claas or other recent sets?

Not enough time? Not thought of everything? Something like that

I'm thinking a similar setup to 42070. Only, er, good...

Yes - but I wasn’t able to see if lockable or not

Do you remember if it has suspension? And if so, what kind?

My guess would be none on the front, and pendular on the back
