The rugged looking 2008 Hess Toy Truck and Front End Loader remains a contemporary classic in the Hess Truck series. This heavy-duty truck is loaded with chrome accents on the grill, gas tank, and wheels. It features real-sounding ignition, back up alert, hydraulic arm sound, horn, and 38 working light. There is a side window in the truck box to view the payload, and the tailgate doubles as a loading ramp for the front-end loader. For the first time Hess introduced a working motor on a toy. The front-end loader can move forward and reverse motion, has a functioning shovel and bucket arm. It also has 18 operating lights. There were 1,600,000 of these trucks made.
