Classic Construction Models is excited to present the latest die-cast model to join our ever-growing collection, the 583K Pipelayer in precision 1:48 scale.
Measuring approximately 4.6″ long, 3″ wide (counterweight retracted), and 2.6″ tall (without boom), this unique model will be an admired addition to any scale model collection. Some of the extensive detailing and features present on these models that you have come to expect from Classic Construction Models includes a highly accurate open operator’s station complete with control levers and joysticks, foot pedals, and comprehensive instrumentation panels. The D342 turbocharged diesel engine has been replicated and is visible through the open engine bay.
Functional pipelaying boom, hook and winches allow for a wide range of display positions while the individually linked, free-rolling wide gauge track pads wrapped around working track tensioners and idlers complete the rugged undercarriage. To finalize this configuration, a functional Cat 58 winch with hook has been attached to the rear of the machine.
The Cat 583K Pipelayer will be packaged in a collector quality box with an individually signed and serial-numbered certificate of authenticity. Paint, warning labels and machine markings on this model have been approved by Caterpillar® for accuracy.
While we are too early in the process to determine production run, price, or estimated delivery, we will keep you up to date with this information at the above link as we have it.
