Characteristics[edit | edit source]
The front loader is a large, robust heavy lifting construction vehicle designed to dig into large amounts of dirt, rocks, and debris and haul it somewhere else. The engine that powers the vehicle is in the back, to protect the engine from hazards such as boulders or debris falling from the lift in front of the vehicle, and all four tires are missing.
The color is a slightly dark shade of yellow, that along with the years of rust, exposure, dust, and grime, gives it an even darker tone in color. As these vehicles were used for heavy lifting before the Great War, they can be found in and around pre-War construction sites and quarries.
