Check out all the details below!

From The Hess Corporation: The first ever Hess Dump Truck is boldly designed with a solid green base, white upper body, and green side stripes.  The elongated hauling bed, on a dual-axle rear chassis, is custom-designed as a transport for its work partner, with an innovative fold-down tailgate that is also a hidden pull-out ramp for the Loader to drive right up into position!  A cab-mounted button activates the hydraulic lift pistons (and associated sound), raising the bed into the dumping position.  4 additional buttons trigger 3 more sounds (ignition, horn and backup) and flashes all of the brilliant lights.  Chrome detailing includes front grille and bumpers, sunshield, cab steps, grab rails, and exhaust pipes

The self-propelled, multi-direction powered Loader has a 270° rotating cab with a side-mounted extending boom featuring a jointed excavator arm and bucket combination that can bend and swivel in just about any direction.  2 top-mounted switches activate the lights and the motorized tracks in either forward or reverse direction for ultimate maneuverability!    Chrome accents include the exhaust pipes, side mirrors and grille.

Totaling 350 parts, this construction duo is the heaviest and most complex Hess Toy Truck ever!   The 2017 Hess Dump Truck and Loader is sold exclusively at www.hesstoytruck.com for $33.99 plus tax, which includes 5 Energizer® batteries and free standard shipping.
