Dig up a lifetime of action!

This 1:16 scale replica of a Caterpillar Excavator is just like the real thing.

Individually linked tracks create real movement and sound. A handle-operated shovel-arm with removable bucket digs easily into the sandbox quarry.

The cab that rotates 360° and the hood that opens to reveal the ventilator grill. It's like a highly detailed model yet tough for hard play and realistic action.

There are even rubber inserts that attach to the tracks to give them grip on slippery surfaces like tile or linoleum!

Functional, sturdy, and great for indoor or outdoor play, the Caterpillar Excavator is an intense machine for intense imaginations!

    Both of my grandsons, age 7and 5, love Bruder toys. They are very well made and very realistic. They enjoy them inside the house as well as outside.

    Product review of CATERPILLAR Excavator
    Posted 12/29/2012

    My husband and I thought that the toy was metal and not plastic, so that's our bad. We should have researched a little better. The plastic top came off within seconds of our two-year olds using it. We bought these along with sandbox filled with pea gravel, fully knowing it would take probably until summer before they could really manipulate the levers. We like that the toy wasn't made in China, but wish that it had been made of a more durable material.
