Very cheap to not provide both sets of 2 in 1!
The kit comes with only one set of instructions. We brought it for the other truck as it is advertised as a two in one. For that amount of money I would expect both sets. Very poor show Lego!

It was cool to see this offering for 2018, a big fan of technic trucks. I also have the Acros Truck too and it would be good to compare the two The build was straight forward but it took some time. The most intense part was building the cab, there were a lot of small parts for it construction.
Comparing it against the Acros, there are two main differences, one is the control of the vehicle. The Mack control system is more stable than the Acros, where the Acros system gives you the feel it was going to break based on the tension being applied.
the accessibility to the engine is relativity the same as the Acros.

I was initially disappointed with the engine in the Mack, using standard pieces to build the cylinders rather than the engine mimics as in other products. But after building it I was quite happy with the turnout, gives you a nice clicking sound and is the right size.

I find the hitch to be strong in the Mack, the Acros kept falling off during the drive. What I do not understand is the insertion of the bed in the cab with no easy access to use it.
The mechanisms for the cargo hold is nice, I think it was best not to include the motors, the movement is overall very strong and stable through the whole process.
While I like the pumps and motors, the can complicate the design
For playing, I find the engine hood to be sensitive with part easily falling off.

As with Acros, I have some parts missing.

now on to the garbage truck... :-)

Mack anthem truck /garbage truck
I purchased this set for my 5 year old austic son and I to put together. My son loves garbage trucks
I was greatly dissapointed after purchasing this to see in fine print on the back of the Lego box that they do NOT provide an instruction manual for the garbage truck. You can only get the instructions on line for the garbage truck. The age recommended for this is 11-16. Iâ??m surprised Lego thinks every 11 year child has a computer to look up the directions on line. I wrote Lego an email requesting a manual because I donâ??t have a computer or printer They said they did NOT have the â??capacityâ?? to provide me an instruction manual, citing environmental concerns over paper. I thought it very ironic the oceans are being polluted by Microplastics but Lego is saying is that they CANT send me an instruction Manual over paper environmental concerns This set is very expensive to not include manuals for both the Mack truck and Garbage truck

The Garbage Man Can
As the title implies, I bought this set solely for the front-loading garbage truck model. For being a 2-in-1 set, I was very impressed. A few corners were cut to keep the piece count reasonable. But as it stands, you will have a lot of pieces left over if you build the garbage truck model. Based on the stickers/instructions, itâ??s obvious the Mack Anthem is the star of the show, as the Mack LR (garbage truck) instructions a) are only available online, and b) instruct you to put a few stickers on that really arenâ??t applicable to a garbage truck.

Word of advice to other future garbage truck builders: Do not bother trying to open the pieces in the order the bags are numbered. The numbers apply to the Anthem model only. Parts you need early on will be spread among all the bags. Save yourself time and headache and open all the bags from the get-go.

I was impressed with how sturdy the truck is, even just the chassis. Other large Technic vehicles, like the Mercedes Arocs, seem to have a bit more flex to them. I was also impressed on how smooth the compactor/ejector operates, as well as the fact that it slides the whole length of the hopper. It would be nice if controls for the compactor/ejector would have been provided on both sides of the truck, as are provided for the lifting arms. I also would have liked different gearing for the lifting arms, as the linear actuators are quite slow to operate. I think pneumatics would have been better, but would have been much messier in design, with all the necessary hoses. The locking control for the lifting forks is nice, but unfortunately prevents the forks from being able to fold up all the way, like they would on a real truck. I did make a design that would allow the forks to fold more, but unfortunately, does not lock the forks into place (the locking is needed to keep the dumpster from flopping-over when the arms are emptying the dumpster into the truck).

While I prefer the traditional Lego Technic piston engine, the 6-cylinder design for this set is an ingenious compromise, given the limited amount of space. An interesting piece was used for the engine fan. It feels kinda flimsy and looks a little odd, but is nearly completely hidden once the cab is fully-assembled. It would have been nice if the cab would have had operable doors, but thereâ??s already a lot of moving functions, in addition to limited space.

I was pleasantly surprised at the smaller details included on the truck:
- Dual [non-functioning] steering wheels in the cab (not sure why they have two different logos in the center of the wheel)
- Realistic bulldog "brick"
- Spot lights on the sides of the truck
- Lots of warning/taillights on the rear tailgate.
- Highly detailed exhaust system

I do wish the garbage truck would have had a few more model-specific stickers, like some of the standard warning placards found on the rear of most real garbage trucks.

The dumpster is a little disappointing, as itâ??s a miss-match of extra pieces. IMO, it looks better if you leave the stickers off.

I did make one small improvement. For the hatch door on the roof, I used a few of the extra pieces to help close some of the gaps in the original design. I did also have to swap out a couple of the pieces from the dumpster (the guides that the lifting arm forks slide into) in order to make the colors match on the roof of the truck (see photos).

Criticisms aside, itâ??s a great value for the money, and a great addition to any Technic truck collection.

I love the steering wheel
Everyone who has seen this has taken it off the shelf and played with it, it looks outstanding!

The hardest part of the build is the fourth set of bags, I spent about four and a half hours on it.

My favorite part of this is thae way the steering wheel tilts and turns as the steering on the rear of the truck is turned.

The hood tilts up showing the engine which is not the usual V engine, it is a nice look.

My only real complaints are that the antennae on the doors come off easily as does the front of the truck. I can't let most people play with it as they are not going to be careful with it. Also the cranes have a problem lifting the cargo container, maybe I am not doing it right, but the cargo box with the chains almost tips the truck over when taking the container off of the truck.

As stated before it looks amazing, the features are cool. The steering and the engine are a welcome change. Whoever designed this it looks great and the steering is cool to play with. The engine is nice to look at. The outriggers and winches are not ideal for me.

All in all, I love this for display.
