Did you get a white luffing jib for it? ;)


No, not really a jib fan to be honest. I am tall and gangly enough without my cranes being the same!

the new jib kit is really worth it though. You gonna regret not having one once wsi stops making it....

Got any photos of yours set up? I have not really seen many collector photos.

Well I know Paul was fortunate enough to get the limited Chi deh LTM 1500 with the custom luffing jib it came with. I'm kinda in the same boat, I have the jib for the 11200 that is currently sitting in the box so not in a hurry to add another box to join it downstairs.

I didn't know there is an ltm 1500 custom release that comes with an included jib? ;)

Yes Chi Deh was the only one that came with a matching luffing jib and was mostly only sold from the company itself.

This was released about 6 years ago and sold out quickly. I believe the only LTM 1500-8.1 to be sold as a set complete with the jib. Branded boxes as well.

well, whoever owns one needs to order the new white all metal jib to replace the old crappy one with plastic sections!

I would not change mine for a white one. Mainly because the 1:1 is red and yellow so a replacement would not look right.

I have the Mammoet jib with distal components in plastic and I am very satisfied with it. There are black accents on the sections and it is quite robust when set up. I do hope the new aluminum jibs are well made and a good addition to the collection.

Good day and so great to hear from you, hope you’ve been well. I am certainly getting close to having some time to do more photos. I have a new camera and even added a couple of lights. As well the collection has been growing along with diorama pieces to add in as well. Sadly life has just been pulling in so many different directions lately it’s hard to get caught up and find some decent hobby time. Many thanks for the encouragement and hopefully I’ll be up and running soon.
