About Mongoose
In 1974, BMX Products, Inc., later to be known as Mongoose Bicycles, launched from a humble garage. The first of its kind, the BMX bicycle was named after bicycle motocross and was designed to fit the needs of the rough-and-tumble dirt-racing pastime that took its toll on wheels and bicycles. The heavy-duty, one-piece cast-aluminum Mongoose Motomag wheel was soon born, and it was the first competition-ready BMX bicycle available. Skip Hess, while in Australia pursuing his motor sports passion, came into contact with a strange and unusual cat-size animal--the mongoose. Known for its passive nature while unprovoked, yet vicious and aggressive enough to kill a threatening Cobra twice its size, the Mongoose impressed Hess, who quickly registered the Mongoose trademark for his new bicycle racing frame.

The Expert BMX bicycle model, which is still a cornerstone of the Mongoose BMX line today, was introduced in 1980. Shortly after, Mongoose captured the first ever ABA National #1 Cruiser Title. Previously known for the 20-inch bicycle, this title signaled the re-direction of Mongoose bicycles to larger-wheeled, adult-sized models. Several years later, Mongoose continues to dominate the cruiser racing circuit with six National No. 1 Cruiser titles, leading to the introduction of adult-sized Mongoose all-terrain bicycles (ATBs).

In 1992, Mongoose pioneered the full-suspension market with the introduction of the Amplifier. This design is still the most-copied suspension design in the market. Several year later, Mongoose launched the Newman adult bicycle frame, which is proven to be 15% stronger than any other bike frame in the market. The design, while functionally sound, also raised eyebrows because of its distinctive look.

In the next few years, Mongoose increased its marketing focus to dominate the bicycle industry, and more important, extend beyond it. The Mongoose brand marketing initiative makes more than 100 million impressions. Mongoose’s brand awareness increased by over 130% in 1999 and solidifies the No. 2 market share position in units and dollars. Mongoose was acquired by Pacific Cycle, LLC, and continues to grow and prosper with more than 40 models of BMX, mountain, trail, freestyle, jumping, comfort, road, and cyclocross bikes.

The Mongoose Dirt Grinder is so far ahead of "Power Wheels" or any other piece of junk plastic riding vehical that I do not know where to start. My kids woke up on Christmas to find a "Power Wheels" Hummer that they were thrilled about. They jumped in...proceeded out of the garage and into the yard. That's about it. My 5 and 3 year old boys couldn't turn the wheel, and if they could the plastic wheels had no traction to get up the mild grass slope or the slightly sloped driveway.

The dirt grider has a very strong tube frame, suspension, steel drive chains, and steel wheels with rubber tires. The capability to cut the speed in half using a separate key is great, and I belive my boys will be enjoying this toy for a long time. This thing can even haul me around at 6'4" and 190lbs (though not rated for it). It went through the snow fair enough last weekend and the kids are getting a lot out of it.

My bottom line point is that if you are going to invest in something like this that will consume garage space then it better well work and give the kids hours and years of fun.

I was amazed at the quality of engineering and materials used in this machine.

Most electric ride-on toys have tiny batteries, weak motors (which last minutes) and plastic tires which need an absolutely flat surface. Not so this unit. This is truly an ATV, with it's hour and a half cycle time and pneumatic tires.

The kids absolutely love it (ages 3 & 5).

This is a toy that will last for a generation.

The Dirt Grinder is great. Follow the charging directions exactly and it will perform better than advertised. Check item when it arrives. I had to have a few items shipped from the manufacturer that were not in the original shipment that were supposed to be included.

The manufacturer responded quickly and provided excellant customer service. The manufacturer provided expedited shipping so that all the items would be delivered before my son's surprise birthday party.

My four year old loves his 4 wheeler! I highly recommend the product!

This is a real ATV with an electric motor. It blows away those plastic ones you see in toy stores. This ATV has a metal frame, suspension front and back, pnumatic tires, lights, keyed ignition, etc. My kids love it. Plus it has a seperate parent control key to set the max speed at 4 or 8 mph, which is great for the younger kids. It seems to go pretty long on a charge, and can go over about anything. My kids are the envy of the neighborhood with this. Plus the neighbors don't mind it because with the electric motor it is very quiet.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Nine Millie on November 1, 2007
We got two of these last Christmas. At first, we thought they were defective--wouldn't charge. We then figured out that we needed to tighten everything--the connections were just loose enough to cause the battery to not charge. My kids (ages 10 and 8) rode these like crazy and then they sat in the garage for months, not being charged, so I was very surprised when we got them out again and they held a charge for hours of play! The rubber wheels are great, but like any real tire, they can be punctured by an errant nail in the road. Fortunately, my 8 year-old doesn't weigh much, so a "flat" tire doesn't affect her ride. Overall, a great choice for the price and very fun. I've even had a go at it, and I think they go faster than the stated 7.5 mph (we'll have to clock it sometime).

Verified Purchase
Very well built frame (lots of metal, adjustable shocks, heavy duty motor, disc brakes, knoby tires). Was able to haul my 175lb frame up steep hills (25lb over rated limit). As posted by others, had to tighted up lots of parts initially and re-order a tool kit, flag pole, and the electronic horn/light switch (twice!)). Not hard to replace or work on and parts shipped fast. Had to answe some pretty obscure questions however (what color are the rims? Is the rear lens cover clear? Does it have a parking brake?) vice just giving model number.

It's obvious the frame is mongoose strong point, electonics look good, but just need better Q/A at the factory to make this a 5 star. No regrets in buying it though

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Heather Cohen on April 28, 2007
I bought this for Christmas for our five year old boy. The box showed up and had missing parts. No tool kit, or flag (you know how important that is to a 5 year old.) The assembly was really shoddy and everything had to be re-tightend. The "circuit breaker" came loose and was hanging down. The charger plug is really loose and difficult to plug in charger. The ATV would work intermittently on and off. Very frustrating as I could not figure out what was loose. After 3 weeks it stopped working all together. Speaking with customer service is a waste. Their is no way for them to diagnose what the issues are, so their solution is to send you new parts. I am currently waiting for a new control box and ignition switch.

I realize that this is a toy, but you would expect it to last a little longer than out of the box. Considering the Peg Perego ride ons that we have work great and customer service is much better. Granted that is a much less complicated machine.

Buyer beware. If you are very mechanical and good with electrics - go for it. If you are like me, that expect things to work reasonably well. Take a pass.
