I had to make a road trip today to pick up some things. I think it should be easy for you to figure out what came in this.

GC1,

You're absolutely correct! But I only collect empty boxes that have company logos printed on them...

...the truth is;







Three quick shots for now.

Thanks Shovelman. That model's not listed on any sites- is it a new release? What's the price?

The pics of this at MineExpo had this thing looking pretty cheapy-cheapy, but your photos do it justice. I think I would still like to have one of these after seeing it again.

So how much of it (minus the cab) is actually plastic?

At MINExpo; nobody would remove the prototype model from the box, so it was impossible to know how much was metal and what was plastic.

The front and sides of the cab are made of metal, with the rear being plastic. The undercarriage, deck, A-frame, and mast are metal. Most of the deck machinery is plastic as is the drill rod and hydraulic line retainer on the mast.

Overall a very nice model, but a little pricey (in my opinion). If the sun comes out today, I'll try to take some better photos and some close-ups.

Shovelman, thanks for posting these photos! I'm really looking forward to this model. Hopefully the amount of plastic on it won't be a disappointment. How much did you pay for the model?

Here are a few photos of the Pit Viper at Farmersburg. It's a beast of a drill compared to the smaller Drilteks and Ingersol Rand drills at the mine.

I'm definiatly getting one of those for my collection! I'm guessing these are in-production now. Anyone know when the release date is? Think

Alex,

Look for an e-mail from me later this evening?

I ordered mine through an AtlasCopco Drilling Solutions dealer. I know of no model dealers here or abroad stocking these models.

Alex,

I noticed a significant difference in the PV-275 photos you posted, from the new scale model. The machine you photographed has a single rear-mounted hydraulic stabilizer, but the scale model has dual units. As strange as it seems, I can't understand two being better than one in this application.

Can someone tell me why this is?

Shovelman,

Just a question, how large is that model when compared to the 49HR?
