Great excavator, but the tracks come extremely loose. I may be able to take out a track link to tighten. Otherwise, it's not bad toy.

It is the greatest toy i've ever seen! It works really well, and it moves around really good. I find that it doesn't spin around in the middle very well, but other wise, good job Bruder!

I bought this excavator for my 3 year old son for christmas after buying him the mack lowboy truck for his birthday back in Oct. 2007. I was concerned about the realistic styled tracks but they have held up great. I have found myself comparing other toys to BRUDERS now. The excavtor fits well on the Mack Granite lowboy as well. HIGHLY RECOMENDED!!!

This is a great toy! Not recommended for sand box but rather for a dirt box which it does great in. Tracks lock up a little but this is to be expected with small moving parts in dirt. Product is so good that I am thinking about buying another one for me to use with my son!

I bought this excavator for display only, and it goes great with the rest of my construction equipment. The handle on the bucket arm takes away from the realism, but I plan to remove it , and add working lights, and window glazing, and opening operators door.. I will be purchasing more Bruder toys for display.. The quality is very good!!

I love this Cat Excavator. It is very well made but not good in sand. I usually play in the dirt becuase I don't want the tracks to become clogged with sand. Over all it's a great toy.

What a cool, but rather large toy. The digging experience is very realistic, as is the detail of the model. My 3 year old is not quite skilled enough to more the arm with the handle, but he manages. It works much better in dirt than sand mainly because the tracks get glogged easily as does the rotating cab, but a quick shake does the trick. These are nit pik items because the toy is great overall, and tons of fun. It looks so real, you think you might break it, but it is very durable, and it something wants to break, the arm parts unsnap easily to prevent breakage, and are easily snapped back in place. This feature alone is brilliant.
