Cement mixer on treads. Fred Lundahl, founder of Buddy L, focused on play value of his toys that were manufactured. With this concrete mixe a young boy could actually make concrete and could build roads and foundations if he wanted to. These toys had a low survival rate as often times they were left outside. The operation of the toy was put in motion by turning the hand crank which turned gears with a clutch mechanism that could turn the drum and/or raise and lower the hopper. One the other side of the drum is the discharge chute that is controlled by a lever arrangement on the frame. With all the moving parts that had to be manufactured for this toy it is easy to see why there werent many made and certainly even less that survived. Finding the larger construction toys complete is a difficult task. It was a very complex toy to engineer and produce. Buddy L also manufactured a smaller version of this toy without the treads.
