Oshkosh Cement Mixer

You can only realize which is the front and the back thanks to the hot wheels logo which is colored in white.

Oshkosh Cement Mixer 

Name:  Oshkosh Cement Mixer
Debut series: 1992 New Editions
Produced year: 1992-2002
Designed: Larry Woods









The logo makes all the difference
The story behind:  Oshkosh Corporation, formerly Oshkosh Truck, is an American industrial company that designs and builds specialty trucks, military vehicles, truck bodies and access equipment. Based in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the company employs 12,300 people around the world.


The looks: Another of my hidden jewels! Oshkosh Cement Mixer was produced from 1992 till 2002, it was one of the most iconic hot wheels back in the day. I remember most of my childhood everybody had it, nowadays it is very rare and so it is quite expensive in the flea market, luckily I was able to got mine for a very cheap price. The design is very fair in line wih the Oshkosh company. The body and the cilinder are made of plastic and the chassis is metal based. The color scheme is simple, black for the wheels and the cilinder and everything else is yellow. You can only realize which is the front and the back thanks to the hot wheels logo which is colored in white.
