Terex AC1000 Telescopic Crane Integrated

 

This is a very heavy and solid model. Underneath there is some detailing of the chassis with the driven axles being distinguishable. The tires are good and the wheels are resin but have different hub designs on the driven axles.

The driving cab has internal detail and the steering wheel can be seen. It has side mirrors, a beacon and the main driving lights are well replicated. The cab tilts forward slightly compared to the engine compartment behind and this is probably due to the moulding of some of the parts. Some finer detailing such as windshield wipers and colored door handles would have added more realism.

Behind the driving cab the carrier looks good and has many textured surfaces and various equipment parts, and there is an interesting ladder that leads to the engine cover. There are supports over axles 3 to 6 for a metal wheel cover if the outriggers are not fitted. A similar arrangement exists over axles 8 and 9. All nine axles steer independently so all of the steering modes of the real crane can be simulated. There is working spring-loaded suspension on most axles. A large toothed slewing ring sits under the crane and there is a ladder leading to it. At the back there is a light bar that features painted lights.

The outriggers are made of metal. They have detail within the casting that reflects the real outriggers. Sharp graphics are applied at the ends and the outrigger pistons are smooth when extended. The outrigger pads are made of a hard resin.The outriggers can be detached from the crane and transported separately, and separate wheel arches can be clipped on. The outriggers are fully functional with extending beams and pistons that screw down without any visible screw threads.The outriggers are strong enough to support the entire crane off its wheels.

Two metal beams can be fitted to the carrier deck to hold the winch assembly during erection.

The crane cab has metal handrails and ladders. Inside the detail is good with a large control console. The crane body is a simple but is cast well and it includes a small auxiliary winch and a pair of resin slewing motors.

The winch assembly is a large separate part with three large winch drums, two of which are pre-wound with thread by Conrad. It attaches to the crane with a some resin pins and a few metal handrail and platform parts can be fitted.

Two counterweight trays hook onto the winch assembly. The ballast plates are finished well with good graphics and have usable lifting lugs.

The boom is designed in two separate parts - a heavy five stage lower section and a lighter four stage upper section. The lowest boom section has some fairly simple detailing in terms of resin cable drums, but the casting of the main hydraulic ram thrust blocks is impressive. The main rams are huge with smooth pistons and just the ram locking mechanisms depart from the look of the real machine. Although the cylinder jackets are resin, they seem to be painted for a perfect color match. A blanking plate and guide pulley fits over the open end of the main boom. An impressive bank of metal pulleys provides a heavy lift head. The boom is raised using two very large cylinders which have a locking mechanism which is tightened using a supplied spanned. It works really well and gives confidence that when fully tightened they will hold the boom as desired.

The optional upper boom also has some cable drum details and there is a resin hoist line guide. There are more metal pulleys in the boom head. At maximum boom extension the model is over 2m tall.

The sideways superlift (SSL) is mainly metal with some plastic elements. The pulleys are metal.The Sideways Superlift is also a separate part so does not have to be fitted. It attaches fairly easily and the tensioning drums have a defined lock which is disengaged by pressing the button on the side, and this works well.

Three hook blocks are supplied which gives welcome flexibility and they have 1, 5 and 9 pulleys respectively. They are metal blocks have good graphics and metal pulleys, although they have resin hooks.
