Being a dirt guy has it's perks in regards to shovels. I found this photo of a Manitowoc shovel in Steve Barrs photo set from a HCEA Show 2008.

I don't know what model it is simply because I am a dirt guy. My build will consist of using a 4100 crane then scratch build the shovel boom out of brass,styrene, ect.

This is the only photo of a Manitowoc shovel, I've came across. Also, I recently found a Manitowoc shovel that was larger than this one...a heck of a lot larger.
This is accordingly to the photo. I don't know if they made shovels this large,it reminded me of a fairly large mining shovel with dual pulleys at the top of the dipper boom. Anyone heard of such a Manitowoc shovel this big ?

Found a video of her in operation back in 1999. Video is from bennettshovel's youtube account . Great tube channel for shovels ,draglines and other fun stuff. Yeah she is a 3500 BTW.

That would be a really cool build, Ive never seen a 4100 in shovel configeration but dont mean u cant make a model of it. That larger one might have been a 4500 that was posted up by a user here a while back ill see if i can find that pic or many more of it. I never seen a 4500/4600 in shovel configeration but like I said someone posted a pic so I wouldnt be surprized if there was really a 4100 aswell.

Manitowoc built some 4500 and 4600's as shovels. It looks like they ranged from 5-6 cy or so.



"4500 with 40' boom."


"4600 with a 6 cy bucket, 1961."


"4600 with 5 cy bucket on 72' boom" - stripping shovel configuration.

This photo was found in one of the galleries courtesy of Michael Minette on the Stripmine.org website here - http://www.stripmine.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=17089

Wow, thanks for posting that, Dave! I never knew they had it. It's listed in stock at BRI right now, but doesn't mention it being a kit.

Here's the picture they have for it:



I may have to get this one!

That's the model Alex, it belongs to Arty. I took it apart and re-painted it for him. I like it better in red than the orange.

What info do you need for the 3500 you posted first? I have a parts book but I'll be damned if I'm climbing the boom for youNot talking I've been up on that boom holding a 5gal. can of that black dipper stick lube over my head while my buddy wiped it on. I see that picture was taken before we oiled it.

I wasn't sure if it was just bad lighting or really orange in that photo. Thanks for clarifying. I guess I'll see what it looks like when I receive it myself and make the decision if I would like for you to do the same for mine.

Speaking of Manitowoc shovels, does anyone know when Manitowoc stopped production of the 4500 and introduced the 4600? I think it was 1961 but I'm not 100% sure.

Here is a 4600 shovel, the rest of it is along the road next to it. She is an oddball as she has twin Cat engines.

I have only seen pictures of a 4600 backhoe on a barge. Quite impressive!
Does the 4600 backhoe also exist on crawlers?
