The legacy of the Cat 245 lives on in our die-cast replica of this incredible machine in 1:48 scale. The 245 excavator is equipped with wider flotation tracks ideal for working on soft ground. Each model comes equipped with working stick and booms, positionable buckets, detailed hydraulic lines, a fully detailed engine and engine compartment accessible through opening engine bay doors as well as spring tensioners in the track frames, perforated engine covers and finely detailed walkways.

The models are finished with authentic Caterpillar yellow paint and decals.


The Caterpillar 245, introduced in 1974, was powered by the six cylinder turbocharged, 3406 engine with 325 flywheel horsepower. The 245 had a maximum reach of more than forty feet, a digging depth of nearly twenty-six feet and standard bucket capacities from two to three and three quarter yards. The 245 came equipped with a variable flow hydraulic system, hydrostatic track drives and oil cooled disc brakes. After a production run lasting nearly 14 years the 245 was replaced by the Caterpillar 245B in 1988.
