Work x 4
Generation II stompers,
circa 1983?, had 3 settings: off, low (for climbing), and high (for speed)
(see pic, notice the sliding bar in the
middle that controls the speed). Gen II had rubber tires that were about 1/2"
wide. The bumpers were moved to the cover instead of the base. The stompers also had
headlights ( see pics of misc stompers ).
Some stompers came with stunt wheels, it was a fifth wheel that
attached to the bottom of the stomper so it could drive on only two other
wheels. Gen II mixed it up by giving you the ability to build your own stomper with the
Deluxe Custom Kit.
Work x 4's were seen in both Gen I & II.
Both included a dump truck and a cement mixer, only the base is
different (the Gen II cement mixer has the wrong tires). I'm not sure if
the others are in both sets.
Workhorses (1983) which were
Gen II stompers that towed various items and had a real working winch. In 1984, they were named Wilderness Campers.
Don't forget the Road Rods which included a Porsche,
a VW Bug, and a Subaru Brat. The
stompers were slightly modified for a series called Speedsters
. Dont forget mobile force .
There was also a set of mini stompers that were about
half as long and took a single AAA battery. There were also series called
Heavy Haulers (1983). Lastly, we saw the introduction of
Water Demons!. This was a set of six amphibious vehicles.
