Description: In 1975, Fisher-Price introduced 3 new hefty construction vehicles, #300 Scoop Loader, #301 Shovel Digger and #302 Dump Truck. These vehicles are large, all plastic, and roll on wide track, deep tread tires. Each of these sets come with an all plastic figure that has a round body and a construction hat, identical to the figures used in 1971's #980 ATV Explorer. 1976 introduced a new vehicle, the #311 Bulldozer. 1977 introduced yet another new vehicle to the series, the #313 Roller Grader.

In 1978, the round body figures wearing construction hats were replaced by Husky Figures.
