PRODUCT: Britains Farm Toys Massey Ferguson 6480 Tractor and Loader ( Farm Toys Massey Feruson 6480 Tractor and Loader

DESCRIPTION: A 1:32 scale die-cast metal model of a tractor, with front loader and silage grab, which is compatible with most Britains 1:32 scale implements. Suitable for children aged 3 years upwards.

GOOD POINTS: The Massey Ferguson 6480 Tractor and Loader is a fantastic 1:32 scale model from the new 2012 Britains Farm Toys range.

This replica tractor is a wonderfully designed farm vehicle which will appeal to children and die-cast collectors alike, with its bright red colour scheme and authentic interior and exterior detail.

The trailer is part-plastic, part-metal, with large rolling oversized wheels comprising some great tire tread detailing, and a front wheel axle which enables the front wheels to angle inwards when being manoeuvred around objects and corners.

Attached to the front of the tractor is a large loader supported on a strong articulated arm that enables it to be raised, lowered and tipped. The loader doubles as a silage grab, and has a boxy jaw which opens up to reveal horizontal and vertical tines perfect for cutting, grabbing and transporting silage!

The finish and attention to detail in every aspect of this scale model really is fantastic - in particular the Perspex encased driver's cab, complete with driver's steps, side mirrors, seat, steering column and controls. In addition, a handy tow bar on the back of the tractor can be dropped down to enable it to be used in conjunction with Britains 1:32 scale trailers for some great farm play.

This is, in our opinion, a brilliantly detailed scale replica from Britains, which is a very collectible model but also has lots of playability for younger children - ideal for encouraging plenty of role play and social development, as well as educating children about farms and machinery.

BAD POINTS: The cab doors do not open. Some of the plastic parts are quite flimsy, and so the model may be more suited for use by slightly older children whose play is less rigorous!

PRICE: Approx. £21.99
