German toy engineers Siku specialize in die-cast vehicles. The Volvo Excavator is made almost exclusively of solid die-cast components expertly riveted or screwed together. Plastic is only used for the glass in the cab and the hydraulic hoses.

The tracks are made of rubber belts that turn very realistically when the excavator is pushed along. What’s more the tracks do not come off the guide wheels easily as they are engineered with an inner groove.

Toy Hydraulic Excavator by SikuThe entire cab rotates through 360 degrees above the track frame. The boom can be moved up to a vertical position. The excavator arm and digging bucket both pivot through roughly 90 degrees.

The great degree of movement means the Siku Hydraulic Excavator can be positioned just about any way you choose. This makes it, as with Siku’s other models, suitable for both play and display.

Toy Digger Cab and DriverThis digger even has its own driver in blue overalls sat looking out of the cab. He is no doubt admiring the quality Siku design and engineering and the immaculate and durable paint finish.

Detailed, rugged and great fun, the Siku Volvo EC 290 Hydraulic Excavator would make a satisfying addition to any collection of toy diggers.
