Product

M103 - Logging clamp attachment - N Gauge

Details

Comes in kit form and requires construction and painting.



Only the attachment is included. The reach stacker is available separately ref. M1.

Special attachments for Forklift-Trucks, Reach-Stackers & Gantry Cranes are not uncommon. Since the 1970ís when ISO containerisation became accepted throughout the world, the need to adapt the modern container handling equipment to carry the occasional non-containerised loads developed. One common example is the Logging Clamp lifting attachment, the first dating back to the 1960ís. These attachments are used to lift large tree-trunks or a complete fixed length stick-load on and off railway wagons and road trailers, having long bent clamp like arms that cradle and squeeze the load together in a stable bundle.

Our Logging Clamp Attachment kit has been designed to provide a visual-display of the many variations of what the 45t Telescopic Boom Reach-Stacker can handle.

This attachment is not a direct copy of any specific manufacturer, just soundly engineered to suit 1:148 to 1:160 N scales. The attachment once assembled is directly interchangeable with the existing top-lift spreader attachment, by simply removing the pivot pin, dropping it off and replacing it with the new assembled attachment in the same way. Its design incorporates 360o rotation and clamping-arm movement to show log load cradled or about to be clamped to lift on or off the OTA railway wagons and our own stick-load type flatbed semi-trailer being released in early 2014. The model Reach-Stacker truckís own weight adequately holds the laden attachment aloft (see photos).

The original container spreader attachment removed from the Reach-Stacker boom should not be considered wasted as this could be placed on top on a disused 20ft container. In reality you often see them perched on a container and rusting away when not used regularly. These logging attachments are sometimes placed on the ground with legs in part-open arch form when removed from the truck.
