At the Bauma 2019 in Germany, WSI presented the new pre-production sample of this crane in the Liebherr fan shop. Last year, this sample already looked promising and shortly after the 2020 Nuremberg Toy Fair, the model was delivered.
WSI engineered the crane perfectly close to the real crane, with similar details and functionality unachieved until now on a die-cast crane model. The review sample of the Mammoet livery arrived safely in its stable box and there were no damages or missing parts. WSI transferred the impressive crane correctly into the 1/50 scale, including in the total undercarriage length and the maximum outrigger base.
The success of the real crane is due to its capability to travel on roads with 12-tonne axle loads, a 52-meter boom, main winch and the two front outriggers. The crane is quickly assembled, which saves time, and is fairly strong. Many domestic and international crane rental companies successfully use this crane.
The Netherlands-based Mammoet company owns the real crane and right beside the yellow Liebherr version, the LTM 1750-9.1 model was presented in the colors of Mammoet. This first company livery looks amazing and features a maximum of great details, some exclusively on this version.
