UGears Fire Truck with Ladder is a self propelled dynamic model that works like a true fire truck. This model belongs to the class of the new generation of UGears. It is much more sophisticated and its mechanical running part is more real. The model function like a real Rescue & Fire Truck with turning foot, moving apart & ascending ladder which transforms into a real crane with hook. This model runs, shifts, steers, and accelerates just like a real truck. First ‘fuel up’ by turning the lever on top of the cab. Then ‘start’ the engine with the shifter in ‘idle’ and see four pistons moving realistically under the folding hood. Open the cabin door to find a fully-functioning steering wheel and even a working gas pedal. Ready for a ride? Shift the transmission into ‘forward’ or ‘reverse’ and watch your truck head back. UGears Fire Truck is equipped with the retractable 3-Section Fire Ladder on a rotating platform. And when fully extended has a length of 27.5 in. The Fire Ladder has several controls. Press the lever and lift up the ladder. Turn the platform to the right or to the left. Fix the selected position with a special ratchet. All three sections of the ladder can be extended ahead. Ascend the ladder and you’ll get a real crane with hook at its end. Ages 14 & up. 537 pieces. Level: hard.
