I really liked this set, specially for the price. Perfect size and build time. The challenge factor was enough for me, I actually liked the mixed up bricks without numbered bags. It added at least one hour to the build time. The only thing I'm upset is the lack of power options. I really would like to see this motorized, it would be awesome.
I must say that the design was very well thought out. New ideas for the tract and doors on the cab were great. Now an issue..... No numbered bags. My 11 year old grandson and I tackled this build. With over 800 parts he was taken back by no numbered bags. He said, and I quote, "This Is Not Going To Be Fun Grandpa". I ensured hi that it would and I proceeded, with his help, to sort all the pieces. He was very happy with the final product. I suggest that boxes that start the age at 10 have numbered bags. Those 16 and up, do not need to be numbered but it would be nice also.

Thanks for your review. We're glad to hear your grandson enjoyed the set, even if he was a little worried about unnumbered bags! While many of our sets have numbered bags, not all do. Sometimes they're unnumbered to add a bit of a challenge. Or sometimes 2-in-1 sets will be unnumbered because the two build options won't have the same sorting. (Check out the b-model instructions for this set at LEGO.com/Technic!)
What can I say, It was a good build. I mean, the only negative was tying the rope part to the hook, but its pretty cool how you can tow logs with it. I was at first hesitant to get the tractor due to the front not being a bucket, but it wouldn't hurt to try something new. It doesn't disappoint, it can pick up the logs decently, you do have to push the logs a little tho. Overall, it has decent features.
