This cage is amazing. It is made completely of metal and the detail of the walkways and ladders and handrails is amazing. Very simple to put on and comes with a great instruction booklet. I recommend this addition to anyone buying the tower crane or anyone who owns one already. It is so nice I'm planning on purchasing every color combo crane/cage DCM offers. To bad i couldn't take advantage of the 3 pack bundle....anywho..thanks DCM for making my collection bigger..like Britt says...oh yeah...hi Britt :-)

A must have the crane is just incomplete without it. Excellent detail just like the crane.

Very nice addition to the original crane, I second what another reviewer said about epoxying the platforms as I had them fall off a couple times (as a result had to repair the handrails).
Pretty awesome, but I got it for free with the crane, I'm not sure I would pay $80 separately for it.

Excellent detail. All metal. A definite must have for your tower crane.

Everything matches the crane, as said by the previous reviewer. Typical TWH has mesh walkways, ladders, motors and cabling and very fine handrails, all of them scale correct. If you're displaying the crane outside of a cabinet, make sure you use some kind of epoxy or something to strengthen the attachment of the platforms to the cage, because they use friction pins instead of screws as in the rest of the crane. The price reflects the level of detail...this is not a toy but another quality replica model from TWH.

This climbing cage makes for an excellent addition to the Potain Tower Crane. The level of detail matches the rest of the crane, so it fits right in, and adds to the overall look. I think it is a little expensive @ $79.95, but well worth it when on sale.
