The truck is detailed with chrome elements and feature 45 lights that work in flash or steady mode, hidden extendable rear loading ramp with sound effects, and four realistic sounds: ignition/idle, horn, back up alert, and hydraulic lift.
The tractor features front and back buckets and a fully motorized rubber track along with 15 working lights and 360 degrees rotation. All this equals Fun for your child on Christmas morning.
