Gravel, sand dirt, or debris, this tabletop truck is built to haul it all. Lift the box to dump a load and the tailgate swings open. A support drops down to hold the box up until the cargo empties, or to simply prop it up for display.

Dimensions: 6" H x 6" W x 14 5/8" L

Each Project Kit contains all the specialty parts and hardware needed to complete one dump truck. Project kits and plans sold separately. (See photo. Lumber is not included with Project Kit.)

I used zebra wood for the engine compartment and other exotic woods throughout. This was a very easy project to build.

I made this for my son's third birthday. It's now his favorite sandbox toy. The plans are very easy to read and understand. The assembly was easy as well, although I feel that in th future I will be using more rubber band type clamps for the irregular parts. One change I would make if the truck is intended for the younger ones, the piece of walnut that houses the hinge for the dump bed door needs to be beefed up a bit. The piece split out after some ROUGH playing by my son, which was expected and utilized as an R&D to make improvements. Over all, extremely happy with this and can't wait to make the other Trucks and dozers I bought plans for.
