Tyler, I can add that they will not be available until Q4. Oct, Nov., Dec. 2021. Also heard that these are the same style service trucks that Cat uses on a T880 and Pete 567 frame. Possibly could be out in Cat Colors in the future. Also can add that due to the pandemic causing manufacturing and shipping issues. Most of these new truck models will not be available until May on of 2021.


You can also check on Ian's website cranes.etc. He did I think 8 Virtual videos with manufacturers on what's coming out in 2021 since their was no Toy Fair in January.. Their is one with Diecast Masters on there.

I’ve watched the video, but all they mention is a crane they use for service. So my question is (having never seen the specific one they talk about), is it a crane like the TWH national boom cranes or the various of single axle service trucks in tandem form.

The biggest I’ve seen in my area (eastern Ontario) is a lifted Kenworth T470 single axle from Toromont Cat.


Anyone have a picture of the 1:1 truck?

Found this on Altec's website. Just a standard service truck with crane. Altec Crane body

My guess they will be various of single axle service trucks in tandem form.

Would be cool if it was like this one:

But I guess we will have to wait and see.

I would enjoy another service truck option. A step up from the Norscot but not as costly as the TWH.

That would be amazing if they did that exactly. The only thing I could find about the model was the AC styles were actual cranes. If it’s “Cat uses them for field service” most certain there will be a Cat version made.
