Set 850 was released under the "Technical Set" series in 1977 in Europe. It finally made it to the US in 1979 with set number 950 as an "Expert Builder"set. This forklift features rear wheel steering as well as forks which raise and lower, both using a rack and pinion system. Traditional studded construction is used almost exclusively, with a couple of beams used vertically and attached with pins.
This was the least functional of the sets from 1977, but the first in a long line of yellow construction equipment which would dominate Technic releases to the present day.
