8851 Excavator


This is a pneumatic excavator with three pneumatic cylinders. It uses the old style pneumatic that works with both pressure and vacuum, hence the pneumatic switches can never be crossed during operation (or the power of the system will be completely obsolete).

It's a cool set though, very realistic looking and fun to play with.

Year 1984, 358 pieces.
