2000

Obviously, I like the Wheel Loader. My first one was the 2001 model shown here which I bought during my inital collecting buying-anything-that-rolled phase. I've always wanted more, so I ordered a couple late last year in my annual winter purchase. These ones are superior to the later versions, of which I only have one -- the new ones have the arm and bucket as a single piece, and a ridiculous engine stuck to the back of it. These ones are more realistic. It'd be nice to find a yellow one, but they are painfully rare these days, and even more painfully expensive on the rare occasion they come up.
