That picture has already been revealed. You can see it here:

They did not even found how to do a real conveyor on a scraper, they still have that rubber crap d'oh! At least, the cab looks kind of cool on that 613.

i'd kill for a olde 651 or 631 scraper,come on Norscot!!!!,and stop making 14 and 140 series graders!!!!!!

Why is "phonetically" spelt with a "ph"?

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.

Cool! Thanks for the pics. I wonder if the 140M moldboard will have the functionality of the 14M from Norscot. If not, then it probably won't be worth it in my opinion. I like the scraper though. That size of scraper, I bet, is more common than a 657. I see 613/615 on a lot more on smaller site prep jobs than I ever see a twin engine scraper on big earthmoving jobs. Does anybody have any ideas on what to use to make the conveyer look more realistic?

Teeth Smile Great Looking models, I'm thankful that Norscot put out the 613G but I wish they would have made a more realistic elevator chain. Even if it raised the price of the model, I would've gladly paid the extra for a better looking chain. I mostly operate 613Cs, we have two of them, so I would love to see a more detailed model. Guys remember the NZG 615, even a chain like that would've been nice. The best elevator chain I've seen is on the John Deere 840 with 400 series scraper. Now that is detailed. I also would love a D6C or D7E(older version) too to go along with these older machines from Norscot.

To me the whole lot looks like toys not models!

With the rest of the model world continuously stepping the game up detail wise i think it's time Norscot followed suit.

Give the caterpillar model line to someone who has the same passion as what we all do!

About all they are good for is base models for a custom esp the 140M & 613.

Hi Guys

The 854K was slightly delayed and was not photographed with the other models. Here's the 993K

Wouter and Steven, thanks for sharing. I am appreciative of your efforts in keeping us updated.
Perhaps the 993K is a bit of a pre-production model yet ???? Perhaps the wheels and tires will be revised.

The pictures of the models are from the production samples and the models are expected to be available from dealers in September/October. I don't think the tyres are going to change.

Your right the wheels and tyres are crap , they look nothing like the 993K I saw or any photos i've seen, but at least its the high lift version, just hope the bucket goes to the correct height, but i'll buy it and Norscot know that!!!!, close enough is good enough for them! But they are getting better compare a D8R to a D6T or D10T and see the improvement

Weve seen rims like that before with Norscots models and they have been fixed by the time the model comes out so i would reserve judgement untill you have them in your hot little hands. One thing i have come to notice is that photographs hardly ever do the models justice, they all seem better in the iron.

Whistle Nice!!!!!
I can't wait to add the 966 to my fleet of vintage machines!!!
And, even if it has a rubber belt, well, one more scraper won't hurt the market....
The 993 looks nice too.
One thing about the 966A, It read "TRAXCAVATOR'' on it...
I thaught traxcavators were actually crawler loadersConfused Confused

Cat 245.....Now and Forever

I am looking for industrial auction brochures from Ritchie Bros, Miller & Miller, Forke Bros, First Team Auction, Max Rouse, etc from the 70's, 80's and 90's.I am a collector and heavy equipment enthusiast and these pamphlets are loaded with nice pictures of cleaned and freshly painted equipment.Thet don't have much value once the sale is over but they are a great help to me in preserving the memory of machines that are no longer being built.Please, help my hobby by looking in your old storage boxes and file folders for these old auction sale brochures.Your help is much appreciated.
