We do NOT own this item, but do own other Kettler products & have to say as a brand we have been very impressed with the durability & ease of replacement parts. We have only needed replacement parts due to our OWN problem, such a chess piece getting lodged into a place it does not belong...lol
Based on other reviews, I suspect this is just as durable.

We bought this model for our 3 year old for his birthday last year. It is a very well made product. Directions to put it together are mostly in German, so you have to go by the pictures... which takes a lot of checking and double checking which makes it take longer than you would expect.
With that said, my son never really got much use out of it. The gearing in the pedals is pretty low, I would assume to make it easier to pedal in grass, mulch... but it isn't low enough. Its very difficult/impossible for my now 4 year old to get it going in the yard. He can only use it on the driveway and sidewalks and there, there isn't much he can scoop with the bucket.
He actually gets more use out of the trailer that he hooks up to his Power Wheels to help when mom and I are doing yard work.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a bucket of wings and a six pack of beer!
