This Towering 24-Foot Lego Crane Can Actually Move This Guy's Furniture Around

This definitely isn’t the first incredibly detailed Lego crane we’ve ever featured, but Dawid Szmandra’s 1:24-scale Liebherr LR 11000 literally towers over previous creations. With the boom fully raised, the model stands just over 24 feet tall, and weighs in at a hefty 60 pounds. But most impressive is the fact that it can actually lift and move furniture around.


Szmandra is probably still going to need to call some friends over if he wants to move his couch or fridge, but his crane, powered by four Lego Mindstorms EV3 bricks, nine motors, and a handful of automated sensors, can easily handle chairs, toddlers, and maybe even a small dog. Don’t bother asking for instructions on how to build your own, though, unless you’re ready to spend a small fortune on yellow plastic bricks.

Denver is too damn high

maybe 12 feet tall but 24?? Amazing build in any condition.

Curious about the pivot point on the base. When I get into big builds the limiting factor tends to be the axle strength. Gets really easy to twist those suckers under strain

edit. welllllll still 24 feet? doesn’t matter. It’s effin huge
