This highly detailed model Telehandler of the Claas Scorpion 7044 is boxed in polystyrene casing to protect all of its intricate details. Produced by model experts, Wiking, this collectable model is in scale 1:32.
The Claas Scorpion 7044 die cast model has some fantastic details. The mirrors can be folded out and with the front and rear steerable wheels, the model can be displayed in different steering modes. The boom can be lifted and is extendable to a height of 218mm. The engine cover can be lifted to see the radiator, engine and exhaust. The rear features the auxiliary hydraulic connectors and the cab door is split, as it is on the real machine, allowing the top to be opened independently of the bottom.
As well as all of the external details you would expect from the experts at Wiking, the interior also has some great features. When looking closely in the cab, details such as the colour coded switches (hydraulic functions in green, driving in blue, electrical in grey and safety in red) can also been seen, as well as the patterned floor matting and driver operating information.
This is a highly detailed model with many intricate parts and therefore is recommended for collectors over the age of 14 years.
The real Claas Scorpion Telehander has a 7 metre reach and lifting capacity of 4.4 t. Perfect for all of the lifting tasks around the farm. It has some clever automatic boom functions including a bucket mode to help with loading grain lorries and a second mode to help with stacking boxes. The joystock also has a memory function for repetitive jobs.
The Scorpion, along with many other Claas machines, won the prestigious ’iF Design Award’ in 2014. Not only is it a great looking Telehander but it also has some great design features, such as the bonnet, which was developed to ensure the best flow of air through the cooling system to enable the engine to stay cool, particularly during hot harvest work.
