MACK TRUCK with PRIESTMAN CRANE


How many bits can you recycle in one product? It is obviously the Mack prime Mover tractor unit with a rear body added, this could be original as I can't see any other model with it, but I'm sure the pull out stabilisers come from the Simon Snorkel fire engine. The cow-catcher is from the military low-loader, the crane cab is from the Priestman Cub shovel, the jib is from the old International 6x6 Chipperfields Circus crane with a newly fabricated socket to allow it to pivot from the end rather than the middle. The winch is new though. Good thinking really, re-use all that stuff from the parts bins and make a quarter of a million more sales. I have seen also this with a grab rather than a crane hook on the end of the cable.

 Mine is very playworn which is always a sign that someone really enjoyed it once upon a time. It arrived without tyres and I'm still waiting for a hook from Steve Flowers, he sent the tow hook off the Chipperfields crane first time! This is supposed to go with the Mack container truck and lift the containers on and off. Good model.
