Product Description

Product Description

Official CAT Licensed Merchandise

Amazon.com

Does your child love to dig in the backyard? Well put away the shovels and put on the hardhat--the Kettler Cat front loader and backhoe is ready to do the heavy lifting. The mini-Cat looks just like the real thing, but is small enough to fit in a large sandbox (though it's best suited for a slightly larger area, like the beach). Once seated, your child can use the levers to operate the fully functional front loader, letting him or her scoop up big chunks of sand, dirt, or snow. Or he/she can hop on the back end and take the back hoe digger--with its stabilizer foot--for a spin. And the mini-Cat is no slouch when it comes to getting around, with a fully enclosed chain drive system and oversized resin tires with long-lasting rubberized tread strips. Built with high-impact resin and featuring an adjustable seat, the Cat front loader/backhoe measures 65 by 30 by 21 inches (W x H x D) and is backed by a three-year residential warranty (one-year institutional).

watching your child lose their mind playing with it will be worth it.

The directions are marginal at best and would benefit greatly from some written directions and labeling the bags and parts. I am very experienced at building RC cars and helicopters and I had to keep referring to the drawings to make sure I wasn't doing it wrong.

The rear stabilizer (under the excavator seat) could be sturdier and easier to deploy, but neither seem to be a problem for our son who is going on three. It would be nice if the locks for the front end loader portion could be engaged with one hand, but it doesn't seem to take away from his enjoyment.

I do recommend this product, just make sure you have enough room to store it and patience to assemble it. (hint: some of the stickers are large and very thin in order to make the curves, spray a little mild detergent diluted with water to make positioning them easier)

My Husband and I ordered this for our 5 year old son, who is obsessed with heavy equipment. After reading the review I was nervous of a couple of things,,,
-Would it be big enough
-Would it be sturdy
-Would we be able to assemble it
The answer to all these are yes. My son is not a huge kid but there is still room to grow for him, (40lbs)I can even sit on it at 120lbs and it doesn't feel well too weird, except that I'm sitting on a toy.
For a toy this is very sturdy, the shiny plasticky look scared me into thinking it would be flimsy, but it is not. He does 180's with it and flips it into the air. He runs into things like mad and none of the parts bend including the attachments.
Now construction, this was a shock for me to believe all the problems people were having. Now I'm open to the possibility that maybe the directions have changed since it came out. This took us less than an hour to assemble including the stickers. Now, we also were talking with German voices, and having a blast. So I think if this needed to be assembled quickly it could be done within a half hour. It was not frustrating at all for us, sure colored directions would be nice, but unnecessary.
So overall I am very pleased with this purchase, oh and the shipping time was not bad at all. If anybody is concerned about ordering through here I actually ordered mine through Northerntools.com

My son, who is almost 3, loves construction stuff. He sleeps with books about it, plays with toys that do it, spends hours in the sandpile "constructing", and watches construction trucks like a kid who is mezmerized!
This toy is great! We were fortunate enough to pick one up off Craigslist for a bit under $100. The family prior never used the excavator attachment as it is rather flimsy and they had no where to use it without breaking it.
WE DO! That other reviewer who mentioned most people not having a big pile of sand in their yard wasn't taking about us. No puny sandbox here. 6.5 ton of pure white sand in an 18' sandring will certainly provide the perfect venue for such a large & fun toy. And he happily pedals it down the hill to the bike trail and digs in the loose dirt along the sides like he knows what he's doing. So many uses here for fun.
Ours was already assembled and I watched a few YouTube videos on how to use the attachments and scoop. I showed my son and he was off "constructing" in no time.
He loves that it isn't motorized and noisy, he makes those noises himself and it's all imagination. The tractor looks just like the real thing and he likes that part. Kids and adults comment on it all the time, how neat it is.
I like that it's large, so he won't outgrow it for a while. It's metal where it needs to be and plastic for weight savings where it's not. The excavator is definately less well made & seems flimsy, so anything heavier or "packed" will certainly break it. You can use it, but only for sand, water, or dry fine dirt. Not really excavating. And the weight limit will certainly be reached on the excavator well before he outgrows the tractor portion.
The steering works really well and is easily turned.

Verified Purchase
We bought this for my son's 4th birthday. It was a HUGE hit! For sizing...he is BIG for his age weighing about 45lbs and 43" tall. It fits him perfectly and should for awhile. My husband is very handy and had no trouble putting it together...it took him about an hour. If you are buying one for a gift, be sure you have enough time to assemble...as others have said it took them longer. Once assembled, I questioned whether it would be large enough for my son, however it was fine. If it was any larger it would be very difficult for a child to manage. The quality seems durable, but today was only day one. Overall, it was a great gift for my little guy. He LOVES all things construction and farm equipment. My title says it all...that was as I was putting him to bed...an exact quote. I hope this helps:)
