This is the rear-loading recycling truck that compacts, stores, and dumps refuse just like the real thing. Made by Bruder, renowned German toymakers for 85 years, and winner of the Spiel Gut Award, Germany's highest honor for toys, it includes two 3 1/4" H x 2" sq. recycling bins that are dumped by hand into the truck's hopper with a lifting grapple. The twist of a knob activates a packer blade that scoops debris into an internal storage compartment which holds up to 100" cu. of crumpled paper or other small items. The compactor assembly tilts up and locks into place for dumping; a second knob pushes materials out the rear with a "moving wall" piston. A 1:16 scale replica of a Mack Granite series refuse truck, its tilting hood reveals an engine block, its side-view mirrors fold, and its tires leave tracks in wet sand. Durable ABS plastic body with polycarbonate windows. Ages 3 and up. 27" L x 7" W x 10" H. (6 3/4 lbs.)

This truck is huge -- beware
from San Francisco, CA
this was sent to my 4 year old by his grandparents. when he opened it, we were both shocked by how huge it is. after playing with it for a while, he said "they made it too big. let's send it back and get a smaller one. or a remote controlled car." I did as i was told.make sure you have the space before you get this; we live in an apartment in the middle of the city, so it's just inappropriately huge.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

AIt really works and is like a REAL one!.Not sturdy enough for a rough young boy. Should have come with instructions on how to operate the recycling. Had to look it up on the Internet on You Tube.

My nephew, who is 3 years old and for whom the truck was purchased, was almost speechless when he saw the truck. Within a relatively short time, he was working everything. He refused to take a nap unless the truck was right outside his bedroom door. His pleasure and reaction was worth the money. Product is excellent.
