Purchased the Pay Hauler earlier this year. While the entire 1/25th International line from First Gear is great, the Pay Hauler tops them all. Details abound on this truck, from the opening cab door and battery compartment to the three stage hydraulic lift cylinders for the dump body, this has it all. The engine is very well replicated (and visible from the right side). The dual front wheels are poseable and have a realistic turning radius. Paint quality of both the die cast and plastic parts is excellent. What you have to watch out for are the thin step bars on both sides of the cab and the accurately thin mirror brackets on both sides. If you're not careful, they break easily (don't ask). I would highly recommend this Pay Hauler to anyone that collects dump or mining trucks. Very well done.

Received the 350 Pay Hauler from 3000toys today. I must say that this is one impressive model. First Gear really does a great job on the IH line, and they really hit a home run with this one. The overall attention to detail is super, with just about every hose, wire, cable and connection replicated perfectly. The front wheels are easily poseable and the lock-to-lock movement is extremely realistic. Quite a bit of plastic, but the color match to the metal components is perfect. The dump body flips up on three stage hydraulic cylinders and will stay put at any position. Strongly recommend adding this to your construction fleet if only for the uniqueness of the truck itself. And, the packaging from 3000toys was bullet proof!
