CCM is excited to announce the modeling of two unique earthmoving machines, the single engine Cat 633D & tandem-powered 639D Elevating Wheel-Tractor Scrapers in 1:48 scale die-cast. Approximate measurements on these models are 12″ long, 3.25″ wide, and 3.625″ to the top of the cab.
Immediately upon inspection of these replicas the eye will be drawn to the highly detailed operator’s cab featuring a closed ROPS design with accurately replicated controls and pedals, complete with instrumentation.
Extensive attention has been given to the elevating scraper mechanism on the two models, which have been modeled in a static display position. Modeling a functional scraper mechanism in 1:48 scale raised durability concerns as well as design constraints, and the decision was made to focus our efforts on other significant details.
The tilting floor, a feature unique to these elevating scrapers, moves back in an arc to dump. Other areas worth noting on the 639D include the Caterpillar 3306T rear engine which is visible through an open engine bay.
Hydraulic lines, wipers, mirrors, and handrails all provide an extra level of realism, setting these models apart in even the most impressive of collections. The Cat 633D & 639D Elevating Scrapers will be packaged in a collector quality box with an individually signed and serial-numbered certificate of authenticity.
Although we are too early in the process to determine price, production run, or availability, we will keep you up to date on news and developments on these models at the respective links below.
