This is a good product. It's fun to PLAY with. All of those who give it bad ratings, keep this in mind... IT IS NOT FOR KIDS! It is for loose dirt,sand etc. Not for picking up blocks, heavy items etc. I have been a heavy equipment operator for ten years, this is a good playtoy. I highly recommed NOT GIVING THIS TO KIDS! Of course it will break if you give it to a kid.

This product is definitely NOT for children. We purchased this for our 3 year old boy and it is not durable enough for any child --boy or girl! It is plastic and very cheap. We were very disappointed in this product and the way it was advertised. It is more of a collectible toy for an adult -- NOT for a child!

    Comments about Bruder Toys America Caterpillar Excavator:

    I just bought the third one of these for my son. My son was enamored with excavators when he was about 3 and so I came across this product while looking for a good quality toy. Most of the stuff in the stores is very poor quality and this seemed to be better quality with great detail and made in Germany. I thought that I really had found a treasure in Bruder toys, but I soon found out otherwise. They seem well made and durable, but they just don't hold up. He broke the first one on the boom shortly after getting it as well as they hydraulic pistons. Then the tracks came off and then the lower half came off. I got him the dump truck at the same time and the dump body also fell off as well as the hydraulic piston for the dump body. I paid around $75 for each of them.

    I then bought him a second excavator since he liked it so much but he started using it in the sandbox. The sand got in between moving parts and literally wore the plastic away in no time and it just fell apart. I ended up getting him a John Deere excavator for less than $10 that held up better than this which he still uses in the sandbox. He has been asking for another one of these Bruder excavators for a while so I bought him his third one which I found for $30 with free shipping. Overall, Bruder toys look great but are definitely not for playing with. They are best left on a shelf to look at.

          This vehicle, just like all of the other Bruder Caterpillar licensed toys, is junk. The build quality is very low. Don't expect it to last for very long.

              My son had seen this at FAO Schwarz and literally glued himself to the display window to get close enough to it! He's 4 and I read the reviews and maybe 3 is too young to appreciate all the features. It's as close as you can get to the real thing. It's a massive, well made piece and it's a big hit when he has friends over. These trucks are not made in China which is a big plus for me.

                      My 4 year old longed for this toy. We got it for him for his birthday. Within a week one of the rods was broken to work the digger arm. We were all very disappointed. For the price you pay for this item, and it being designed for children, it really isn't worth it. It is built poorly and cannot withstand normal child usage. Don't waste your money.
