hi everyone can anyone tell me are the actual models of these two shovels the same size -also many folk seem to prefer the nzg model even though it looks a little less detailed -what do the members think ?

Hey graybold,

I just own the H485(yellow),I think it was released in 1990. By then, the weight of the H485 increased from 475 tonnes (1986) to 560 tonnes (1989). The old R996 was about 594 tonnes. So it should be a tad larger, but not much.

I shot my DEMAG cheap on ebay. Damaged though, but ... childhood memories. I clearly remeber when I saw it back in 1995. Men, it's bigger then the toaster we had back then. I know the R996 is better detailed, but I love the yellow/orange color with the blue letters ad white stripes.

Hope this helps,
Max

Sure, no problem: Length of the undercarriage over the grousers is 212mm. Height of ROPS/FOPS is 185mm without and 190mm with lights. Anything else I can do for you?

Cheers,
Max
