Stobart Rail ExcavatorOD76KOM002
Only the second off the newly tooled Oxford range of construction vehicles, this monster hydraulic excavator model is certainly impressive. One detail worthy of note is the longer boom on this example. It is a replica of the machine made by the giant Japanese mining and construction equipment company Komatsu, whose pedigree goes back as far as 1917 with a portfolio for producing military equipment and industrial equipment from their bases in Japan, China and several other Asian countries.
Our model excavator as used by Stobart Rail is decorated in yellow and dark grey with blue and white chevrons to the lower body. Stobart Rail is printed in blue on each side of the vehicle, complete with the little railway track logo. The graphics are repeated on the jib arm with the addition of the words Civil Engineering, also in blue. Other components such as the jib bucket, cab window surround, roof trim and rear deck housing/exhaust pipe are finished in grey and the cab interior is moulded in black. The model will make a good partner for the Konecranes Reachstacker in Stobart livery already in the range, presenting a new departure for Stobart fans as well as an impressive vehicle for a construction diorama.
