Brand: Bruder

Product description

On any other Bruder tractor you'll find they will carry on as normal playing tractor driver on the fields to maneuvering around the yard... not so on this model.

Because of the whole Bruder tractor with mechanic niche you'll notice the once powerful, mostly reliable Bruder 04041 Fendt 1050 Vario tractor, now breaks down quite often - any excuse to whip out the workshop toolset and wheel jack.

As the wheels can be removed it makes even more fun with use of the mechanic set, headed by the Bruder figure with poseable limbs and a grasping hand to hold the tools.

The front-axle can be steered three ways; via the steering rod that threads through the cab roof, steer by hand by controlling the front wheels, or actually use the steering wheel inside the driver's cabin.

Occupying the front mount is a detachable counter-weight, with the option to attach an implement that is made to be front mountable. Well the rear tow hitch is height-adjustable, you should be able to fix any Bruder trailer or implement on the tow.

As its possible to lift up the bonnet the mechanic can do repair work here also, but he can also drive the tractor by accessing the interior via the opening cab door to sit securely onto the seat.

Manufacturer details

Bruder logo

Released in 2016, it was around this time Bruder began releasing a series of extended tractor sets with additional accessories included. And in the case of this model, we have a mechanic theme set with figure and workshop tools. It was also at a time the wheels could be removed which is more vital than before with this set centred around the workshop.

Guide to Bruder Fendt 1050 Vario Tractor with Mechanic

Our guide is here to help you understand how the mechanical set works, along with all the functionality of the Bruder Fendt tractor explained in detail.

Fendt 1050 Vario tractor

With all the mechanical theme hoopla its hard to remember you still get a big, powerful, multi-functional Bruder Fendt Vario tractor with the usual features found on all models. That includes the steerable wheels, opening bonnet, rear tow/front mount, open cab door and bonnet.

Newer release models do get the usual features, but you also get a few new ones. That includes the removable wheels to extend play to mechanic, height adjustable tow hitch and a fully compatible front mount - currently occupied with a removable counter-weight.

Fine exterior decor is replicated on Fendt tractors only; big chunky exhaust pipe, side mirrors, imitation cab lights, headlight detail and orange hazard lights. And well the steps lead to the cab where the figure can hold onto the support bars.

Bruder Mechanic figure

Multi-purpose Bruder figure carries out the mechanical work, but more interestingly he is capable playing farmer and tractor driver. What he's wearing should indicate multi-purpose roles, as its clothing often found on the people working in the yard.

More interestingly, the work can be completed thanks to poseable limbs; which means he can sit thanks to bending at the knees, he can steer the tractor due to moving arms, along with grasping hands so he can hold onto the tools.

Outside around the tractor he'll kneel down to repair the wheels, well the legs bend to sit on the tractor seat inside the driver's cab.

9 Workshop Tool Set

The mechanic tool set is a group of tools all needed to get under the the tractor to access the chassis; remove the wheels to replace or repair; to getting under the bonnet to make repairs and maintenance work on the engine.

Included is a powerful wheel jack which in turn you position one of the two (or both) support legs under the wheel frame to balance the Fendt tractor while the wheel is removed.

Then its up to them to fiddle around under the wheel hood to make repairs using the small - made from durable plastic - metal effect screwdriver, wrench or spanner - there's an hammer but that tool won't be needed for mechanical work, there's also an imitation toolbox.

Steerable, Removable Wheels

Notable characteristics available in the current Bruder tractor series is the ability to remove all four wheels as a way to extend play in regard to making repairs and maintenance, and it couldn't be more appropriate feature for this set.

To remove the wheels from the axle you'll need to get hold of the small nugget like screw device to take the wheels off the frame. To imitate a mechanic in a real workshop; first tuck the wheel jack under the wheel frame and lift it up, then tuck in one or two support arms to keep it all level.

Then you're free to remove the wheel, but only one at a time. There're a handful of tools found in the repair shop to help maintain or repair the tractor wheels or rims.

Maintain the Engine

Well you have access to a mechanic, they may as well get there monies worth by lifting up the actual bonnet to make general repairs and maintenance. It only has a simple lift up action and well closed shut, it will keep shut.

Under the bonnet is just a simple engine block with detail, so its up to them to use the wrench or spanner to fiddle around imitating repair work, so no need for the wheel jack or support arms here, just the tools and toolset.

Getting under the bonnet is a standard feature in Bruder 1:16 scale series, and would sure make for a lot of fun in the workshop or out in the yard.

Mechanic drives the tractor

Real active steering makes this big toy tractor what it is; as they steer via the steering rod that threads through the driver's cab roof hatch; steer the wheels manually by turning front-axle left or right; or finally reach into the driver's cab and steer the wheels via the functional steering wheel.

Well all options make for a lot of fun, all this should happen with the Bruder figure sat behind the wheel on the seat inside the cabin. He only imitates driving the tractor mind you, but it makes for realistic play with the driver sat in the tractor.

Accessing the interior of the Bruder Fendt tractor happens via the opening cab door through the left side only, so the figure will have to climb up the steps to reach the cab door to get inside.
