Orders are currently being taken for the 1:50 scale model of the Manitowoc 31000, shown above.
Manitowoc’s 1:50 scale replica of the 31000 crawler crane was unveiled today at Manitowoc’s CONEXPO 2011 booth.
The model was available for order at the show in the merchandise shop. The finished models, which are also available through Manitowoc’s online store, will arrive in the fall.
“We’re excited that the 31000 model is here at the show. Since we started developing this model last summer, there’s been tremendous interest, and many of the models are already reserved,” Amanda Barbarossa, promotional program manager, said.
The model features moving crawler tracks, full-rotation slewing, a detailed hook block, key-operated drums, a detailed cab interior and a fully functioning Variable Position Counterweight system with individual counterweights.
The Manitowoc 31000 model will be painted Manitowoc red and will be rigged with a 262 ft boom and 131 ft luffing jib at a 1:50 scale. Production is limited to 500 units and will retail for $1,800 each.
