DIGGS THE BACKHOE

Diggs the Tractor is fresh from the factory, full of energy and always eager to learn about construction. He is always full of big - if impractical - plans; his main weakness is that he wants to 'do it all' and often does not realize his limitations.

SCOOCH THE FRONT-END DUMPER

Scooch the Dumptruck is the newest machine on the site and Diggs' best friend, and usual work partner. Scooch admires Diggs' confidence and versatility, and is happy to be friends with such a cool digger.

CARRIE THE FORKLIFT

Carrie the Forklift has been on the site longer than Diggs and Scooch and acts very much like an older sister to them both. Carrie can tease and gently boss Diggs and Scooch around whenever she likes; but she is not a trouble maker - just an enthusiastic kid who is a bit overzealous about proving herself.

BOZER THE BULLDOZER

Bozer the Bulldozer is the approachable, understanding leader of the construction vehicles. His authority is unquestioned and he has a great sense of his own responsibility. Fair and patient, he can be a gentle father figure to his younger charges and a good friend to the older machines.

CARL THE CRANE

Carl the Crane tends to lose track of what he is doing and where he is going. Absent minded and forgetful, he is brilliant at what he does, but must count on others to guide him. Carl is calm and philosophical when something goes wrong, and almost surprised when something goes right.

MAXINE THE CEMENT MIXER

Maxine the Mixer sounds confused at first, but is really very wise. When she's mixing, she talks in a jumble, thus mixing up all of her words. When she starts putting all her words in the right order, however, we know her cement is ready.

LUG THE DUMP TRUCK

Lug the Large Dumptruck lives in a self-satisfied reverie. Nostalgic through and through, he is continuously re-living the great events in his past; both in his head and to anyone who'll listen. His favorite subject is lugging dirt and he will talk endlessly of the great loads he has lifted and the grand buildings he has helped to build.
