Welcome to the forum. Cool to hear you and your son are interested in moving dirt! The "toy grade" excavators are just that. They are too light and under powered to do much. Best bet would be to glue the clutches if you can access them. The other trick is to make sure the excavator is below what your trying to dig. At least with the hobby engine excavator the bucket won't physically go below the tracks.
