CAT 24H grader
Here is the HUGE CAT 24H grader by Norscot, you can see just how
incrediably big this machine is with that man standing by the blade
The inside is more detailed than most with a fitted operators chair
with side arm-rests, controls along the side, and a steering wheel
The cab doors are functional and can be opened or closed, there's
also many more details including windshield wipers and the
CATERPILLAR window decal
Here's a view of the front end
Painted lights and an amber warning beacon light on top
Front wheels steer
Here's a close-up of the front steering axle hydraulics
Massive engine compartment makes up the models rear
The right side
The blade does everything the real machine would be capable of:
...it tilts back...
...it tilts forward...
...it turns right...
...it turns left...
...it extends way out to one side...
...or it extends way out to the other
Here's a pic of all the hydraulics that control on the functions of
the blade from raising it, to extending it, to steep angling it
Not only do teh front wheels steer but right behind the cab the
machine also pivits allowing for a variety of steering options
The rear is equipped with a strip of ripping blades
Blades are completly functional and can be raised or lowered
Machine is equiped with a full leveling suspension system
insuring that blade will stay level all the time
Here's a comparison pic of the 24H vs. the 140G to show
you just how big this grader really is
Just barely fitting on this lowboy all I can conclude by saying is this
is a very large piece of equipment and a great model filled with
details and besides having big rivits Im very pleased with it
and recommened it to any model collector
Here's a shot of the CAT 24H grader keeping busy trying to clear
this roughed up haul road for the big mining trucks
