Product Description

Bruder Toys Caterpillar Excavator

From the Manufacturer

This 1:16 scale replica of a Caterpillar Excavator is just like the real thing! Realistic details include individually linked tracks for real movement and sound, an easy-to-use shovel arm with removable bucket that is operated with a handle, a cab that rotates 360 and a hood that opens to reveal the ventilator grill. There are even some included rubber inserts that attach to the tracks to give them grip on slippery surfaces like tile or linoleum.

I bought this for our 3yo son who loves heavy equipment and digging in the dirt. This is a cool toy as far as being a pretty good replica of a real one but it does not work well in dirt or sand. Fine sediment gets caught in tracks and after a short amount of time, the tracks quit turning. Then the handles on the arm do not move the bucket well. My son has since ripped off the tracks and does not do any digging with it but still enjoys pushing it around. Don't buy this if you want your kid to actually dig dirt, it would be good inside toy or outside but away from dirt or sand. But, I think it was intended for playing in these areas, so the rig is not that well designed.

My son is obssesed with excavators and if ever there was one made out of durable material it would be great fun for the kids. But I cannot find one that will actually dig up dirt. I like that this one didn't have batteries or sounds, but unfortunately it also didn't have any durability either. The little hinge that makes the arm work broke within three days of use. Bummer.

First and foremost, the User Experience video that Bruder uses to promote this toy will set false expectations for the consumer. For example, Bruder USA shows this Excavator going down hill in the sand. Its actually a wooden ramp hidden by sand and a cleaver low camera angle. Bottom line, this is not a sand toy by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, at the Bruder USA website, they correctly position this as an "indoor toy". So why they promote this way is beyond me.

The Tractor Belts are difficult to turn and if they get sand in them, the hard plastic belts lockup and then slides when pushing it across the sand making for a poor user experience. It's a shame Bruder did not use the rubber belts similar to the ones used on the Bruder Caterpillar Buldozer where the belts actually work in the sand. The engineer who designed this plastic belt, the product manager and video marketing manager should loose their jobs because this lame design and false expectation. The Excavator also comes with 20 or so individual little rubber inserts to aid the hard plastic tractor belts to stick to slick indoor surfaces. These inserts do not stay in the belts, get loose, get lost, and could become a hazard to smaller children; more reason to switch the design to a rubber belt.

The video also shows the product rotating with ease. This is somewhat misleading as well. It does swivel nicely when its not in the locked forward position and if the toy has never been exposed to sand. However, the forward position locks into a rut. To push it out takes three hands. Because the product is so light due to the plastic materials, the excavator would rather slide sideways in the sand than to swivel out of the rut and turn as it should.

Do not plan to use this or any Bruder toy in dirt or sand - Tonka trucks of my youth they are not.

My 3 year old loves the excavator. It has big handles so his little hands don't have any problems diggging with bucket. It was a wonderful addition to our "big machine" fleet.

This was a Christmas gift for my grandson. The Excavator looks great but in my opinion is not worth the money. The shovel locks up and requires an adult to put it back together again. After this happening several times my grandson became frustrated with the toy and interest was lost. He liked how the Excavator rotates around and the tracks are well built.

My almost 3 year old is obsessed with all things construction trucks. We have a few Bruders, which we love due to the realistic design and movement. However, this truck did not hold up very good. My son had it a day and he scooped and filled the bucket (blocks, goldfish crackers, quarters), dumped it out, repeat etc many times. He slept with it in his room last night and took it with in the car today all b/c excavator is his favorite. During his play, he was able to detach two of the rods from the arm, they just hook on one end. Somehow in the detachment the arm stopped being able to stay up by itself. It now falls flat when lifted. While it's an otherwise good truck, we were unhappy with the flimsiness of this particular model. It sadly went back to the store.

Nice looking excavator but very expensive and not durable enough for young children. My friends two year old loved it out of the box but I knew it wouldn't be long before it was broken. I think it took less than 24 hours before the arm was broken. Cool design but just not nearly durable enough. At least he can still run around with the arm and turn lights on and off!
