"It has a huge engine. It has massive hydraulics, really big wheels, and most importantly, it just looks awesome," is how one of LEGO Technic’s engineering elves described his initial view of the Volvo L340F Wheel Loader.
Now it’s available as a 1600+ piece, fully-functioning, remote-controlled kit. And it’s awesome.
All told, it’s over 22 inches tall, and the bucket—itself the largest single piece ever created for LEGO Technic—reaches up to 14 inches into the air.
