LeTourneau Technologies L 1850 Loader

by: Steven Downes

Presented here is the Letourneau L1850 wheel loader which has been produced in 1:50th scale. The following pictures take a look around the model which is another amazing release in the growing mining model range from TWH Collectibles.

The side of the machine is impeccably detailed with photo etched walkways from the rear fold down ladder to the cab door, which can also be opened. The fire suppressant equipment has been placed on both sides of the body above the open engine bay and the main, side mounted electrical cabinet has a tall opening door along with slide out work platform and ladder with a fully replicated interior complete with cabling racks and authentically placed components.

The cab has a complete interior with monitoring console with printed indicators, operator hand and foot controls and realistic looking seat. Each side of the cab has metal safety chains fitted along with black painted glazing seals around all the windows and front mounted windscreen wiper. There is even a small maintenance platform at the front of the cab along with two small side mounted platforms just below where the loader arms are mounted which are again constructed of mesh panels.

The articulated steering on the model is fully functional with a realistic level of movement. The twin hydraulic cylinders are present with hydraulic and electrical piping visible between the two frame sections. There is a cut out in the centre of the main body and you can just make out the electrical generator components at the heart of the machine which have all been fully replicated. They have even added simulated rubber stops on the frame to cushion the steering at full angle and the steering lock bar which really adds to the incredible level of detail and realism.

Entry to the machine is achieved by climbing up the fold down stairway which has intricate photo etched steps and accurately scaled handrails. There is even a small etched maintenance walkway mounted behind the rear wheels to ensue a safe footing while performing the daily checks on the massive diesel engine which fills the engine bay.

The large engine cooling radiators are hidden behind the large mesh screen door which can be opened to reveal the engine cooling systems within. Once the main door is open, the two inner doors can also be opened out and have a very realistic metallic look. The rear frame has an integrated towing hook with rear facing work lights and indicators. The engine block dominates the engine compartment with oil filters and flexible coolant piping all visible.

The twin exhausts and silencers are mounted above the engine and rise through a cutout in the top of the engine compartment. A swing down ladder is mounted behind the rear wheel to give maintenance access to the engine bay The main air conditioning for the operator is mounted to the side of the cab and has a very fine photo etched cover. There is a side access ladder fitted to the fluid tank with a swinging lower section while the main engine air filtration components are also mounted on the side just in front of the rear wheel which has another fine mesh screen and painted on door clasps.

The cab roof has a large frame with integral front facing work lights and large, reflective finished rear view mirrors which needs fitting to the model during the assembly stage. The safety railings that fit around the entire top of the engine area also need fitting and there is a small brochure in the box which leads the collector through the full assembly of the model, step by step.

The large loader arms are connected to the frame with stiff hydraulic cylinders which allow the model to be poised with the bucket raised without any danger of the bucket dropping. The Z bar linkage arms have simulated greasing pipework visible and the tip cylinders have flexible hydraulic pipework and check valve detailing for added realism. The large tyres fitted to the model have an authentic tread pattern on the surface with a realistic bulge in the side wall which gives them a more realistic appearance.

The cutting edge of the bucket has some of the most detailed teeth I have seen on a model. Even the cutting plates between the teeth have been added and the bolt detail really adds to the authentic looks of the model. The top surface of the bucket has two lifting eyes which would be used for fitting the bucket on the real machine and there is also a small cut out in the top surface with a grill allowing the operator a better view of the work area. This is truly a museum quality model, with an awe inspiring level of detail throughout. TWH Collectibles have once again demonstrated their ability to produce an amazing scale replica which would make the centerpiece in any collection.

Amazing Detail!

Posted by Robert Napper on 7/7/2013
This is a top notch model. I couldn't ask for better detail. Warning stickers, hoses, doors to compartments, folding stairs. I could go on all day. It's a really great model and the CS from was awesome!

Out standing model

About the best model purchased so far so much detail on a small item. Any would think it was real. Only issue is colour not the same as picture like it's an off white but still a great model. Thank you.

Best detail

I was working on a mine site here in Australia when I first saw this loader. The model is as outstanding as the real thing, awesome detail.

Very nice !

Outstanding model, amazing detail with opening doors everywhere. Looks great in white. Just get it, you won't be dissapointed!
Had my eye on it for a while and took advantage of DCM's deal and got it free with a $300 order. Best deals on the net, thanks DCM!

Got to have both now.

I have collected diecast for 40 years and the L 1850 is as good as any I have. TWH has really taken it to the next level with their details, price and packaging. Thanks Diecastmodels glad I found your website no better deals anywhere!

Worth Every Penny

TWH does such an excellent job as making models that are exact replicas of the real thing down to the last detail, and this loader is no exception. The white color scheme is wonderful, and helps to make an already awesome model even better. This loader will not disappoint.

Better than Norscot

Posted by on 8/26/2012
I thought that the Norscot 994F wheel loader was the biggest and best wheel loader diecast in my collection untill I opened up the L 1850. Sure it may cost more but it is well worth the price. The details are unmatched by any other manufacturer. TWH has surely outdone everyone.

Très beau modele

Superbement bien détaillé, encore de l'excellent travaille de TWH. Magnifique. Merci TWH

Another TWH jewel

Posted by john G. on 7/6/2012
There is no angle that this machine does not look good from. The mirrors, the etched screening, the electrical cabinet, the engine, cab, convex mirrors - even the tire surface is realistic - sorry I waited so long to purchase this model.

Great Model!

Extremely detailed, much nicer then any other LeTourneau Loader model made at a fraction of the price.
