When Peed Equipment Company finished building their 3rd Cat® 6015B, their Field Operations Manager and CCM enthusiast Ken Rudenski grabbed his 1:48 scale version of this machine from his office and headed out to the field to get some pictures.
“The model is so realistic we actually have one at our company office that we have grabbed a few times to look at questions we had on our real ones out in the field.”Ken Rudenski
We had a chance to catch up with Ken, whose die-cast collection mostly leans toward the mass earthmoving and mining equipment, with a lot of dozers and scrapers. After placing numerous requests over the years for CCM to produce the Cat 651E & 657E scrapers, he was beyond thrilled when he saw the New Product Announcement for these models.
Over this past summer, Ken tied the knot with his fiancé. Ken told us that while he didn’t challenge her on any of the wedding details, his one ask was to have his 6015B digging into the cake. Looks like you found yourself a keeper!
Many thanks to Ken for sending over these amazing model-machine pictures, plus photos of his collection and wedding. You can find more from Ken on his YouTube channel, SoCal Earthmovers.
