As a kid I had the Matchbox Taylor Woodrow set, the Ford 'D' series truck, low-loader and Case bulldozer and the O&K MH6 and then later the Traxcavator, how I wish they'd made more construction models. :thumbup:

Well, I figured ten days should prolly have been enough time to get someone that could answer these seemingly fairly simple questions.
