There are so many toys from Bruder that it sometimes seems like they made two duplicates, each with its own serial number.

Two such cars are the Bruder CAT Delta 02137 and the Caterpillar Skid Steer Loader 02482, or so it seems if you don't look closely.

In this article, I'll take a look at the main differences between the two, and when to choose one over the other.

Here we have the Caterpillar Skid Steer Loader 02482:

A very nice little car and slightly smaller than the Delta Loader. You don't see it that quickly from the dimensions, but those few centimeters in height and width make it a completely different kind of car to play with.

It has a pneumatic arm where the Delta uses a lever, but if you play with it you will not notice any difference.

The biggest difference is in the type of wheels, which makes it play very differently. This Skid Steer Loader has 4 wheels, which makes it easy to play with in the playroom or at home in the living room.

Are you planning to use it mainly indoors? Then the wheels ride a lot better than tracks.

The Delta Loader is perfect for use in the sand, grass or soil, especially when you go outside.

The tracks make it easy to drive over all these areas.

Plus it's a little bigger so you might be more likely to buy it for slightly older kids, and it's a little better suited to many of the big trucks and tractors from Bruder, who are also often on the larger side.
