The backhoe is on the job!

• No construction job is too big for this amazing vehicle!
• Raise and lower the shovel and backhoe to get construction work done just like the real thing!
• Roll the backhoe across the floor to see the engines cylinders move up and down.

You are bidding on a unusual Lego 8455 - recreated an incredible and exceedingly difficult to find backhoe digger set from 2003 in blue and modern grey elements. This is a one of a kind "MOC" (My Own Creation), there is only one available for sale - very unlikely that this will be built again. Lego will never create a set packed with this many pneumatic set again - manufacturing the cylinders is costly, probably more than power function parts. Blue JCB vehicles exist in real life, manufactured for defense or military use. This looks a lot better than the yellow. It contains over 700 mostly new pieces. The pneumatic cylinders (only found in education sets), switches and hoses are all brand new. All parts are genuine Lego parts.

It is a 2-in-1 set, but will be shipped fully built in the backhoe loader set as pictured. This is quite educational and the play-ability of this set is simply the best that there is. It contains nearly 2 kilos of fun including 2 pumps and 10 pneumatic cylinders, 7 switches - it has 7 distinct pump controlled functions. Also features a differential, 3 piston engine and a working steering system. I personally prefer the tactile feedback of pneumatic sets versus the modern motorized sets and this set is simply the best ever Pneumatic Technic Lego. Check out some of the video reviews from Youtube.

This would go really well with the 42042 blue crane. Built vehicle only - sorry doesn't include manual. Please click here to ask a question
