I just got this model yesterday, and was told the dealer also received it only friday, so, brand new!!

Just a beautiful model, which can be set-up as a dragline, but also as a normal crawler crane, the Dragline parts can also be attached and removed, which is a great plus!! I'll definately will be geting two more of these in the future!!

Parts include:

- Dragline bucket;
- Metallic pendant lines;
- Big (one sheeve) hookblock;
- One small ball 'n' hook;
- Dragline bucket;
- Dragline fair-lead;
- Ballast, one base plate and 10 blocks (5 on each side);
- Auxilliary jib;
- Three 6 meter boom parts;
- Many tiny screws and bolts as well as special tools to tighten and loosen those.



Ballast build up...









More photo's to follow. I'm considering setting it up with a High-frequency vibrator from the LRB 255.
The Hydraulic Casing Oscillator from the LRB accessory set also fit this model BTW. So, I expect NZG to release a set of attachments for this model as well. Probably including a large slurry-wall grab and a spherical grab.

This is my next model. The slurry wall attachment would make the model even better then what it is if they do make it. I can't wait to see more pictures! Does anyone know when it will be released in the US?

Well, it's slightly bigger than the LRB 255, but yeah, they look great together!!

As for the boom (I assume you mean), well, it has three pieces of 12 cm each, plus the boom tip and the base. Total length is about 58,5 cm (23 inch).

The complex of Newgrange was originally built between c. 3100 and 2900 BC,[2] meaning that it's aproximately 5,000 years old. According to Carbon-14 dates,[3] it is more than 500 years older than the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, and predates Stonehenge by about 1,000 years.

Yup it does!!



I'm just figuring out the best way to move this baby around within the legal dimensions and weights here in Holland. The weight is not a problem though, but the height is. Maximum allowed height is about 4 meters, but even with the crane on the narrow bed of the Goldhofer she is just shy of 4,5 meters tall. That said, this is measured over the antenna on the cab, but as this can probably be removed very easily in real life, it just might work. I'd like to put it on the NZG Nooteboom 2-bed-5 Pendel-X though, but it sits a bit high, at about 4,75 meters. To make it even more intseresting, I'll have two other trucks in the convoi. One for the attachment (40 VM Vibrator) and ballast, plus some other loose parts, and one with cranemats and such. Perhaps a third truck-trailer with sheetpiles. Teeth

Looks like they provide a nice number of boom sections with this one. I love the HH transport shot.

Not enough for my taste actually... The real machine has boom sections in three different lengths, 3 meters, 6 meters or 12 meters. With the model only 3 of the 6 meter ones are included. I'd love a couple 12 meter ones to go with it.

BTW, this machine is, superficially (don't shoot me Christian Wink ) very similar to the LR 1100. Although the LR has a totally different engine (only 322 hp @ 2,000 rpm against 603 hp @ 1900 RPM for the HS 855), and of course the HS 855 is a duty-cycle crane with freefall winches, against the standard lifting capacities of the LR 1100. So, it should be relatively easy to remodel the HS 855 into a LR 1100.

Funny, I'd like to convert my LR 1280 to a HS 895 (which is going to be a lot harder than I thought btw) and the HS 855 into a LR 1100. Teeth Teeth

As for the model it self, the exhaust pipe can also rotate to make more room for transport. Very nice addition to an overall terrific model!!

This is definitely one of my favorite releases this year. Great pictures as always Remko. Just out of curiosity are the boom sections new castings or will the old 885 boom sections fit?

Conrad made the old 885 sections so these are made by NZG so they should be a new cast

Well then, that was a stupid question. I'm so excited about this model I forgot who made it!!!
I guess I better drink a couple more cups of coffee before I start posting in the morning. Thanks Jason for setting me straight.

Actually, lifting capacity is far less, about 90,000 kg (198,400 lbs) @ 3.6 meters (ca. 12 feet). The much larger Liebherr HS 885 HD (made by Conrad) is rated at 130 metric tons. I'll see if I can post some photo's this weekend of the various HS-series cranes.

For all those interested, here are the various brochures for the Liebherr HS 855 HD Litronic:

Liebherr HS 855 HD Litronic - Metric

Liebherr HS 855 HD Litronic - Imperial

Liebherr HS 855 HD Litronic with Hydraulic Slurry Wall grab - Metric

With any luck, I'll have time to rig the crane this weekend. I plan on fitting it with a 40 VM vibrator (from the LRB 255 set). Before setting it up I'll first make a few photo's of the crane in transport mode, complete with truck/trailers with boom parts, sheet piles and crane mats. As well as support equipment (small wheelloader / excavator).
