I have to say the box is huge and all items are well packed NZG have really raised there game, this is one fantastic model anyway to the photos, oh almost forgot the container set also arrived today and it does contain three containers













Well I hope to make a start on it soon, so more photos as and when

The 1600 is awesome! Just watch the tracks, they break easily

Thanks for the warning Brandon, already had one track breakSad good job there are several spare ones. How did you find the reeving of the A frame?, took me a while to figure it out, but getting there, photos will follow.

Wow they soon arrived, did you order those this week? I've just ordered mine this morning, I'm looking forward to displaying the LR 1600 next to my Mammoet LR 1750.

Hi Stephen,

Ordered Monday arrived Thursday afternoon, I did not expect it until after the open day next week, a complete surprise to say the least Smile LR1750 and LR1600 together can't wait to see photos of that combo, I would sell my kids for a LR1750 one of the few Mammoet models I don't have.

Steve,
Wished I'd known. Sold my LR1750 a few weeks ago on eBay. Made good money though!

Stephen had a look at Modell-ovp site and tempting it is, just to much at €1400.00 Paul I'd wish I had known, mind you I don't think you would want my kids in exchange Teeth Teeth Teeth Teeth

Probably no kids Steve! But I would have sold it for about 1/2 what Modell-ovp want!

No problem. Yea I had one already broke in the box before I opened mine, then I had another break couple months ago.
I didn't have much problems with the a frame, I just reeved the same way as the lr1750. Once you add the luffer and reeve it, it's difficult to lower the jib, too much friction but if you pull out the safety rods that keep the lines from jumping, it works much smoother.

Can't wait to see some photos Steve Smile

What do you make of the containers?. I know the price is a little steep but now they're in your hands would you say they're worth having?.

Cheers.

Well finally got the A frame reeved, not to hard to do, but very time consuming took me over 2 hours to do, well here are a few photos











Ops cab



Paul the containers are not bad, graphics are good, but still think overpriced for what they are,if the doors did open well they would be good, but they are Mammoet so one has to have them!!



Hope to have it fully assembled tomorrow so more photos.

Steve.

Can't wait for mine to arrive. Just ordered it now. Might have to unbox my new Mammoet LR1750 to put beside it.

Oh no, I had pretty much decided to plump for the new Terex CC3800 but seeing these photos is making it very hard to resist Think

Thanks for the feedback on the containers, and yes I sympathise with what you mean about them being Mammoet so "must have"!.
