  • The Atlas Excavator, later known merely as Excavator, is a treaded excavator (or power shovel) first issued in 1981. In the original casting, Atlas was cast into the body; this was eventually dropped and the vehicle renamed Excavator. Like many Matchbox models of treaded vehicles, the treads are fixed, with the excavator rolling instead on four small wheels hidden in the base.
