Terex-Demag CC5800 model in LEGO
A 1:17 scale model of the Terex-Demag CC5800 heavy duty crawler crane made from LEGO elements. This is still a work in progress going on six years now.

The model is fully functional and remotely controlled. It uses 30 LEGO motors along with custom battery packs and VEX motor controllers.

It is approximately 10 feet tall (when boomed up). I estimate about 20,000 pieces were used.

It's extremely heavy and breaks down into multiple sections for transportation.

It takes about 1.5 - 2 hours to set up and then about 1 hour to tear-down and pack up.
