42053 LEGO® Technic Volvo EW160E
A rare pneumatic-operated Technic Volvo EW160E!
The building experience of building a pneumatic powered set is very refreshing. They don’t make many of these pneumatic sets, so when one comes along, it’s very welcome here at JustBricks!
The Volvo EW160E model is a fantastic replica of the one designed and manufactured by the Volvo Construction Equipment group. It contains many authentic details that instantly allow you to recognise what it is from the classic yellow and black colour scheme to the all the features it shares with the real excavator which weights in over 17,000kg!
The operator’s cab is built in with details such as a driver’s seat, armrests, sun visor and view mirrors.
While operating the Volvo, you may need extra stability, so you can extend the outriggers and manually secure them in place. You can also lower the front blade and prop the entire vehicle up. Other functions include moving the pneumatic boom, bucket grabber, rotation of the vehicle and also elevate the cab for a better view for the operator.
You can also add the 8293 Power Functions kit to this model to convert the boom to be fully motorised and also add in working lights above the cabin.
It is a 2-in-1 set that also rebuilds into another Volvo branded set, the Volvo L30G Compact Material Handler. So, in other words, you get 2 different Volvo models!
