I made this Hefty Dump Truck from plans that I bought online. It is for my grandson and I can not wait to give it to him for Christmas. There are plans for a trailer and front end loader that I will make in the future for him.

The truck is made out of Red Oak with yellowheart headlights, walnut side panels on back and Red Heart on the back. I did buy the wheels and made the axles from Red Oak dowels for the extra strength.
