2005 Review = https://thelegocarblog.com/2014/02/21/backhoe-battle/ - "this brilliantly engineered jewel of a set... it’s very, very good and with all those pneumatic functions it feels properly luxurious. Expensive but worth it. 9/10"

Information from InterNet:

The LEGO group created this LEGO Technic set with the advanced LEGO builder in mind.
Raise up, lower down, and rotate the bucket and backhoe.
The black and yellow pneumatic system comes with 10 cylinders, valves, and pumps for a fully loaded experience.
The black and yellow LEGO Technic 8455 is an incredibly detailed replica and offers movable and posable parts.
You can clearly see the parts, such as the gear and crankshaft, moving as the excavator makes its way across the floor.
The pneumatic system makes it possible to lift, lower, and operate the parts themselves via a small lever.
This Make and Create set is as ideal for display as it is for play.
