Best Lego Technic Sets with Power Functions & Motors

by Last Updated: Jun 24, 2020All Legos

In this article, I’m going to list and review 6 best Lego Technic sets with power functions that you can currently buy. There are some more Power Functions Lego Technic sets, but I have tried to choose the 6 most popular ones. Also, I’m a big Lego Technic fan so this is an easy task for me. I believe you will like these models at least as much as I do.

All Lego building kits mentioned in this list are powered up with Lego Power Functions. They all include Lego Power Functions motor(s) for various functions. For example, the first crane set in my list uses a large motor that controls the crane’s upper and lower functions.

Now, here we go to my reviews:

Lego Technic 42082 Rough Terrain Crane


Lego Technic Set with Motors


The first one on my list is the largest one with 4,057 pieces. It is a red-colored rough terrain crane. Besides the motor power functions that operate the crane’s lower and upper functions, the manual functions include 4-wheel drive, 4-wheel steering and a V8 engine with moving pistons. Overall, this is a really nice Lego Technic crane set. It can be rebuilt into a Mobile Pile Driver and it is recommended for kids that are 11 years old or older.

Lego Technic 42095 Remote-Controlled Stunt Racer


Lego Technic Remote Controlled Racer


The second one on my list is the smallest set from these reviews (it has just 324 parts), a remote-controlled stunt racer. This model features a motor that is remotely controlled. It can be an ideal toy for your kids (if you have younger kids, you can check my other article that lists Lego Technic sets for younger kids). This vehicle model features tracked wheels and it is ideal for kids aged 9+. The final model measures 8 inch (22 cm) long, 6 inch (17 cm) high and 7 inch (19 cm) wide.

Lego Technic 42070 6×6 All Terrain Tow Truck


Lego Technic Truck with Power Functions


Another set in this list is a 6×6 all terrain tow truck vehicle. It is a pretty big model with 1,862 pieces. Its features include working steering, working crane with winch and extendable outriggers. All these functions can be remotely controlled with the Power Functions motors. Like most Lego Technic sets, this is a 2-in-1 model, as well. It can be rebuilt into a Research Explorer vehicle. This is an ideal Lego model for kids of the ages 11 to 16 (or for adults like me who like Lego). If you like this Lego model, you might like to check out my other article that reviews the top Lego trucks sets (that include other Lego Technic truck models as well).

Lego Technic 42054 Claas Xerion 5000 Trac VC


Lego Technic Claas Power Functions


This set is a realistic replica model of the Claas Xerion 5000 tractor. It contains 1,977 building parts and includes motorized functions like a working crane arm, extendable outriggers and rotating operator’s cab. This Lego model was developed in partnership with the Claas company and also came in the trademarked colors – green, red and gray. It includes 4 huge tractor tires, too and is recommended for kids of the age 11-16 or older.

Lego Technic 42055 Bucket Wheel Excavator


Lego Technic Bucket Wheel Excavator


This set is the second largest one in this list (after the #1). It has 3,929 pieces. The motorized functions of this excavator include reverse driving, rotating superstructure & rotating bucket wheel and moving conveyor belt. The B model of this set is a Mobile Aggregate Processing Plant. The excavator model’s dimensions are: 16 inch (41 cm) high, 28 inch (71 cm) long and 11 inch (28 cm) wide. If you are a fan of big Lego models, this one is ideal for you. And if you are looking for more large Lego kits, you might like to check out my other article with the biggest Lego sets.

Lego Technic 42043 Mercedes-Benz Arocs 3245


Lego Technic Set with Pneumatics


And the last one on my list is again a truck Lego Technic model. It is another great set that contains 2,793 parts. The features of this model include a 6-cylinder engine with moving pistons, double differential drive, fully independent suspension and twin axle steering. It also includes a large motor and advanced pneumatic system. This model was designed in partnership with the Mercedes-Benz motor company. It is ideal for 11-16 year old kids or for adults.

So this is the end of my list of the best Lego Technic sets with motors. If you look for an advice on which one of them to choose, that will be a difficult choice, because all these 6 Lego models are very interesting and realistic models. However, my choice would be the 6×6 All Terrain Tow Truck because I really like its design. It looks so robust and realistic.

I hope you will find one of my reviews helpful.
