Hey all, Finally, four years after the February 2011 Christchurch earthquake our driveway is being rebuilt so I figured this would be the perfect opportunity for me to test out the 42030 Volvo L350F Wheel Loader in the landscape it belongs in In the instruction book for this set, one of the first pages says 'Indoor use only' but the loader would be nowhere near as fun if you couldn't go out and move some dirt/sand! Sorry if some of the pictures are a bit hard to see but my only opportunity to get out while there was a large pile of dirt was at 7:00am Looks like the perfect environment for a little loader work, too good to resist! Play 'guess which earthmover is Lego!' The mountain goat heads up for another attack. The Loader needs more torque/grip to get a good scoop but it did the job. (Note the very sandy 'dirt' where I live ) Got a good scoop of sand, time to take it to the offload point, As you can imagine the loader gets quite dirty quite quickly With the hole filled in, it's time for the loader to do its other job, compacting. Job done. My feedback on the loaders capability on the sand doing some proper work: For a proper set by TLG it did pretty impressively, though a locked differential would come in handy many, many times. It doesn't have as much torque as it needs to dig in to the sand cliff for a big load but you can get enough of a scoop. The power is certainly more than enough for where Lego wants you to use it This set is definitely a purchase I don't regret, getting me RC and an XL motor, plus working very well and looking great! As with all photos I upload to EB, you can find them and more in a higher resolution on my Bricksafe: http://bricksafe.com/pages/Kiwi_Builder
