Kids LOVE it
My 3 year old son has played with this nonstop since he received it as a birthday gift. It is big and tough. Once he opened this gift, he ignored all his other presents, which the other kids at the party kindly helped open for him. He loves the door opening and hood lifting up features, but has managed to remove both doors. The trailer has plastic slide bars which fall off easily. This is mostly made of heavy duty plastic, but is very durable and I'm looking at another Bruder Granite for Christmas gift.

Awesome truck but arrived damaged.
My son LOVES this truck, but when it arrived three tiny red plastic pieces fell out. It was hard to tell where they belonged, but when my son opened it at Christmas we realized it was from where the flatbed snaps in to the truck. It still work fine but I'm bugged that I paid so much money for a damaged product. The return/exchange policy requires us to ship back the product before we receive the new one (even though I'd be willing to pay for the new one while we wait for the return to be processed), but my son doesn't want to have a day without his truck. I'd give it 5 stars if it didn't arrive damaged.

Disappointed in Quality for the Price
Our grandson was thrilled with the flatbed truck. We were disappointed in the condition as others have mentioned. The packaging was seriously damaged and the part that attaches the cab to the flatbed is only plastic. The plastic part that attaches was damaged so we are afraid it won't last long. The truck is very expensive so we expected better quality. Due to the packaging being so damaged we were not sure when it happened. Our grandson was so excited with the truck that we couldn't take it away.

Bought this as a Christmas gift for my son. He loves it and has played with it for a long time. It has held up rather well just like the other Bruder toys we have gotten for him in the past. His younger brother is now starting to play with them and they are still in good shape.

I bought this for my 6 year son... he loves it. Well. I think. Keep in mind this is a very large truck and doesn't fit well with many other truck size toys. It is much larger. About the size of TONKA trucks. He doesn't play with it much :-( which saddens me. But I certainly enjoy the fun with it (when' he's around of course). He plays with other trucks while I play with this one with him.

We love Bruder products
We love Bruder products. We have been buying them for years. This is the first item we have had to return and we sent it back TWICE. The backhoe is great but the flat bed has some issues. 1) The tractor trailer teaches from the truck cab but when you put it back together it doesn't stay locked in so if you pick it up you have to cary it in two pieces. 2) The ramps that attach in the back of the trailer as well as the stoppers on the flat bed do not stay clicked in. As I said, returned twice and had the same experience with each purchase. Try a different Bruder truck.

CHristmas hit again!
Absolutely a hit once again! My son and grandson will have hours, days and years of fun with this toy!!!! The construction of this product is phenonimal. My son shared that the boom truck I bought last year still looks new albeit, it has had a lot of fun abuse in the sand box and in the house! This is my second purchase and a new truck has already been selected for next Christmas! Looks like we will be adding characters too.

I can't wait til my grandson opens this at my house on Christmas Day! Thanks, 2DayDeliver for quick shipping and a nice shopping experience.

Too expensive for the quality
My son received this from us for his 5th birthday, he was instantly in love with the size and toy itself, he's very much into construction vehicles and trucks. Although I feel the price was a bit much- I purchased it anyways. Two days later the backhoe has broken, he was playing it the dirt and the "boom snapped" as he put it. I think this price should be lower, $105 for something that lasted two days...I gave it two stars for the price and quality but the size and idea of the toy is great.

Good enough for a toddler
Purchased this for nephew's Christmas present. He thoroughly loves trucks and tractors so this was a perfect combination and he played with it all day long. Overall, the plastic construction of this toy makes it highly likely that something will undoubtedly break in time. Additionally plastics are widely known to not tolerate extended exposure to extremes of heat/cold and UV (sunlight) so durability outside is highly questionable. However, being plastic it tolerated mild dropping from furniture, etc.. didn't break and more importantly didn't injure tiny hands, feet, etc.. One bit of criticism over its functionality is that the ease of movement/operation of the backhoe's bucket/hoe and the trucks hood/doors are not smooth and simple. Tiny and young hands don't fully understand nor can they deftly operate the sticky actions/mechanisms that also include a few catch/latch points (e.g. the hoe has a catch point to keep it in the upright stowed position). Being plastic and when compared to other similar toys which are mostly in metal form (e.g. Tonka) it and other Bruder vehicles are way overpriced.
