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.

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

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.

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.

Like the other Bruder constructtion toys such as the Mack Dump Truck the detail is amazing. The hydrualics actually move like the real Caterpillar, the tracks make a satisfying rattle as they rumble across my work bench. And the rubber pads for the tracks to work on a slick surface are a nice touch, but it isn't likely this all plastic toy with its attention to detail would hold up well in actual play. As a carpet toy it would probably be fine, and as an adult collectible it is superb, but for actual knock around action an all steel toy takes in stride it would not fair well

I love this toy. I recommend not using the handle that way it will not break the linkage. Instead I use the bucket. DO NOT USE IN SAND, if you use in good dirt it will work fine. Also be careful to not derail the tracks. My sister and I haul it around on our Bruder trailer and truck. We even have handles (trucking nicknames). Other than two complications, this is a GREAT toy.

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.
