Bruder is coming out with some exciting things this year. My favorite piece I saw in their booth at Toy Fair was their new 1/16 scale conveyor belt that is coming out late this Spring.
This piece promises GREAT play value and is the perfect implement for a Bruder tractor or an ERTL 'Big Farm' tractor.
Features include: hand-powered movement of the conveyor belt (crank), height-adjustable chassis (adjustable dumping height), fold-out drawbar, V-shaped rubber belt with horizontal stripes (transports loose bulk material and bales), drawbar fits on truck and tractor couplings, conveyor height 4"-12". Manufactured in Germany from high-quality ABS plastics.
Since ancient times, conveyor belts have helped transport, lift, and lower heavy loads such as stones, timber, bulk material, and others. To make it easier for our little master builders and farmers to complete their tasks, BRUDER is now launching a state-of-the-art conveyor belt.
The mechanisms can be used to lift hay bales onto the trailer and transport them to the barn as well as transport and unload sand or rock on/from dump trucks.The conveyor belt can, of course, also be hooked on to all BRUDER towing vehicles such as tractors, Unimogs, trucks including the Sprinter and construction vehicles equipped with a drawbar coupling.
We also got to see their NEW Mercedes fire truck which shot streams of water at least 15 feet across the hallways of Toy Fair! Mark was having too much fun!!
