August 1st 2011
8110 Mercedes-Benz Unimog U 400 is a TECHNIC set released on August 1st of 2011. It contains 2048 pieces, this makes it the largest TECHNIC set to date. It is made to resemble a Mercedes-Benz Unimog U400 with a grapple crane, cargo box and winch. The alternate model is the Unimog with a large snowplow.
- This set was the largest TECHNIC set before the release of 42009 Mobile Crane MK II.
- This is one of the first sets to have pneumatics and Power Functions combined. Earlier models, however, could add Power Functions only to drive a compressor pump for the pneumatics.
- This pneumatics and PTO shaft can be channeled to the front or rear with a switch, allowing the crane and winch to be used on either the front or back.
- The Unimog features a new kind of suspension, discussed on the LEGO Technic blog page. .
