It can also spark a life long interest in the field.
It’s not long before the dump truck is replaced by the police car or fire engine, or perhaps the bulldozer and front end loader that fills that little dump truck.

One of the trickiest job involves driving slowly with the tailgate open and the angle set right. As the driver moves forward the amount of loose material is evenly spread across the desired area. You can often see this on highway constructions.
