It is with great pleasure for Classic Construction Models to announce the latest addition to our 1:48 scale collection of die-cast models, the Cat® 6040 Hydraulic Mining Shovel. This model will be available in both the Backhoe and Face Shovel configurations which will fill the gap in our legendary 1:48 scale Cat® hydraulic mining shovel diecast lineup. Measuring approximately 13.85″L x 6.75″W x 7″H on the Face Shovel and 15.5″L x 6.75″W x 9″H on the Backhoe these will display proud and tall in any collection.

Features include a highly detailed and accurate operator’s station that’s complete with control levers and joysticks, foot pedals, comprehensive instrumentation panels, opening cab door, individually linked free-rolling track pads wrapped around working tensioners, idlers, and bogeys. The boom, stick and buckets can all be put through their full range of motion and allow for a wide range of display positions. All of this is finished off with Caterpillar® approved paint, warning labels and machine markings for complete accuracy. Models will be packaged in a collector quality box with an individually signed and serial-numbered certificate of authenticity.

The Cat® 6040 Hydraulic Mining Shovels are still in the first stages of development, but progress photos, production quantities, pricing and delivery information will be updated as soon as we can provide.

  • I don’t understand why the models made are not of interest to the average collector such as myself, that’s just my opinion

  • I know why they’re not interesting and that’s my opinion… because you pay $1000 or more for a model and then put that model in a closet where it collects dust, it’s the same as buying a car and not using it. Some of the models are really great (I’m talking about the 1:24 scale) because they are bigger and have more details, but I don’t like the rest. I have a CNC and 3D print at home and I make models of my choice, which means that I first draw a 3D model and then make it… and that is a real pleasure because you create something yourself and in the end you are very satisfied.
    Don’t get me wrong….I have bought CCM 1:24 scale models and will continue to buy them….but the rest of the scale lacks detail in my opinion…
