After I finished my Road Grader L/J project 75029 my granddaughter wanted Pa pa to make one for her sand box. With some inspiration from fellow L/J RUSTICJOHN I made this little guy. Built from scrap plywood and store bought wheels. It should be able to stand up to any 5 year old. Blade turns, top makes a good handle for little hands.

What a wonderful toy you made for your granddaughter . Try making a little monster truck with 2 inch round wood balls for the wheels . I made one for a little boy of just under a year old and he loves it.
