We recently purchased this for our 27 month old son. He loves this tractor!! He quickly learned to steer and the reverse function. We have yet to use second gear....first gear is fast enough. We didn't let him use the trailer until he was efficient at reversing without it. Keeps him occupied for hours in our large backyard and going around the block collecting stones and what not in his trailer. The radio has worked great and we have had no issues with it.
We have experienced the front hood assembly coming unattached but that's after several full speed ahead run-in's with the house. My husband quickly snapped it back on. As for the initial build, took my husband about 45 minutes start to finish. We charged the battery the night before since it takes 18 hours. Battery life is great...read the instructions so you don't kill it.
We bought this for our son about a year ago. It was easy to put together, and our son rides it every day. The battery lasts a long time, and we have had no quality issues. Peg Perego products are great, we use their strollers and car seats as well.
This tractor is absolutely adorable and my son loves it, but it is also ABSOLUTE JUNK! Day 1 the front grill fell off. We put it back on and it keeps coming off. Next the black fender over the wheels broke off. Everytime we try to charge the battery it is next to impossible to get the hood open and it is made so poorly it will surely fall of soon as well. The trailer has not broken off yet, but it wont be long before the junky latch that holds it to the tractor breaks. All of these things are cosmetic and I was willing to deal with them because my son loves this soooo much, but WITHIN A WEEK THE TRACTOR STOPPED GOING IN REVERSE AND 2ND GEAR and now barely is able to drive in the one gear that continues to work. I will be returning it and my son will cry because he loves it, but I have a powerwheels truck and harley motorcycle that have been used and abused for 9 years and keeps running. I ONLY HAD THIS TRACTOR ONE DAY BEFORE IT STARTED FALLING APART AND WITHIN A WEEK IT DIDN'T RUN ANYMORE!
