convert a large pdf to Word

I have a pdf file that 56.7 mb in size. When I use the online export service it tries to convert for about 10 min but ends with an error message that says it could not complete the conversion. Is there a size limitation for the conversion service?

Yes, there is a size limit, but you are just barely above the half way point: It's 100MB (see https://www.acrobat.com/exportpdf/en_GB/faq.html for more information).

Are you uploading via the web interface, or via Adobe Reader? If you are using Reader, you may want to try to upload directly to http://www.exportpdf.com and see if you get better results this way. If it's still not working, you should get in touch with the EportPDF customer support, only they can take a look behind the curtain and find out what's going on with your PDF file.

a practical way to covert a scanned PDF to MS word is to export (or 'print') to TIFF. then open the TIFF in Microsoft Office Document Imaging (MODI, comes with MS Office Pro). MODI has a tool that performs OCR and opens the result in MS word.
