Potain Igo

by: Steven Downes

Presented here is the 1:50th scale Potain IGO21 fast erecting tower crane. This model is supplied with a booklet describing the machine in real life giving all the specifications and lifting details which is a great touch and an interesting read.

The model features adjustable stabilisers and both side compartments on the crane open to reveal the internal workings of the machine including access to one of the winches. The model features reproduced electric supply cables which would allow connection to either 240volts or 3 phase supplies to operate the crane on site which shows the excellent level of detail on this model.

The crane can be self assembled using the onboard frame to allow the counterweights to be assembled without the need for another crane. This is done using the main hoist and both sides of the crane can be reached by swinging the frame around. This is a great addition to the model, adding excellent details that are usually missed from other manufacturers.

The trolley can be traversed using the traversing drum mounted at the base of the boom. This is relatively smooth once the crane has been fully assembled. The hook can be raised/lowered using the main winch drum, accessed from inside the control panel. For transport, there is a wheel bogie that attaches to the main structure.

A second set of steering wheels connect between the counterweights holder so the model can be displayed in it's transport configuration. The jib can be angled if required, and is shown here with the second half of the jib still in it's folded position. The IGO21 is a good, highly detailed model with plenty of features.

The main boom and jib are a little fragile so care needs to be taken when handling to avoid damaging or twisting the parts. The paint finish is very good with authentic markings on the counterweights, doors and jib.

  1. A must have if you love cranes

    Posted by Unknown on 23rd Feb 2013

    Self erecting cranes are a marvel of modern engineering and this model by TWH doesn't dissappoint. Upon opening the box, you'll notice the red color and the compactness into which it folds. With wheels that roll perfectly and tow lead, this makes a great tag along for a Tipper or Dump Truck. The structure itself is very impressive, but what really makes this model a signficant value is how the whole things folds down into such a compact state. Using a number of tethers and cables, the model quickly opens up maintaing a controlled geometry. Completely set up, you'll notice too that TWH adds a mini crane for assembling the counterweights; a really cool feature. And finally, TWH adds just a little more detail than the average model manufacturers and this can be seen in the way the lifting car moves across the job. Very few of these cranes have the ability for the car and the lifting cable to move independantly. A MUST HAVE for the crane guys.


  2. It's Cool

    it is well worth the money they are asking for. There were 2 problems wrong with the one I received,1- the counter weight line is not connected to the model and there is no hook on it either to lift the counter weights off. 2- while erecting the crane up the small metal pin does not stay inside the holder, one of the arms is detached and I can't put it back together, the crane doesn't stay erected at all unless i'm holding it up in the air.

    The Potain Igo crane is a beautiful piece of workmanship that displays very nicely on a 1:50 scale model jobsite. The detail is magnificent and the quality is the best I've seen.


  4. Great Self Erecting Tower.

    This model was more than I expected.

    The counter weights are all individual with lifting handles. It also includes a drum for the trolly and drum for the load line. It looks great set up for lifting or transportation.

    The counter weight lift is a pretty nice feature as well.
