For once, I really want to know how many of these Woot has to sell. Anyone know any website/way to find out?

My son has one of these. He got it when he was two. He's now six and still loves it. Just got done modifying the seat so it would be higher and further back cuz he's too big for it now.

He LOVES IT. we ended up also buying the dumping trailer cart, the winch, and the snow plow.

Complaints:

-the turning radius sucks

-the gearing is too high

Summary: Best money we ever spent on toys when you consider how many hours it has held his attention.

Not sure if you should post that? This slightly-nsfw-flowchart will help.

My son also has one. He is now six (although a little smaller than average) and still fits fine. My almost 4 year old easily pedals it too.

I don't think the digging part works all that well, maybe if you had a large sand pile it would be fine. My kids don't seem to mind.

This is a good price. Northern Tool had these a few years ago on BF. I doubt you will beat this price right now, but I am too tired to look.

We got a similar model for my son's 3rd birthday. Still made by Kettler, just doesn't have the backhoe, the one he has has a trailer instead. With that said, its a very well made product... the German engineering doesn't let down. Everything is solid and sturdy. Will certainly last years.

With that said, I would prefer that the gearing was a little lower. My 4 year old isn't strong enough to pedal it in grass. Works great on pavement. Also, plan on setting aside extra time for assembly. The instructions are mostly just pictures, any text is written in German. I had to do a lot of checking and double checking to make sure I was doing things right.

When what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a bucket of wings and a six pack of beer!

Who named this thing? A backhoe is a combination of two machines. A pay loader and an excavator. Loading bucket on one side, excavating bucket on the other. So there ain't no such thing as a backhoe-loader. It's just a backhoe.

But it is cool!

Why didn't they have cool stuff like this when I was 6? I have a girl, think I can pass it off as an interest for her? I could paint it pink.

Around these parts, a "backhoe" is a machine with just the excavating (backward facing) bucket on the double jointed arm. A "front loader" is a machine with just the loading bucket. A machine that combines both if these functions, one on each end, is referred to as a "backhoe loader." So to me, the name seems correct.

For those buying it, be aware that you have to physically build it from scratch. From ever screws to nuts. You also need a hammer to hammer down some parts. Do not make mistake as it's not meant to be removed and re-hammer. Item is shipped in a very large box, but has absolute no packaging material at all. Our seat broke but the company sent us a new one right away. Great service. This machine is HUGE. The back part can be removed so you only use the front loader. Two kids can play at the same time. My son is 3 and he is not tall enough to operate the front loader's handle nor pedal. I have never tested it on sand yet. I'm sure it will be a hit later on when he is old enough to use it.

Damn, this is beyond my wildest child-dreams. I wanted the Tonka dump truck and cement mixer things when I was a kid. Now this? Amazing!

Of course, no one would ever think of getting these for a female.

I really want to get this for my 3 year old niece. Oh so very tempting, but there is something in the back of my head telling me that it wouldn't be a good idea. Plus my dad would be jealous. The sad part is that her dad won't.
