Diecast Masters

The Caterpillar 770 Off-Highway Truck in 1:50th scale was released by Diecast Masters in 2018 with #85551c.

The Caterpillar 770 Off-Highway Truck in 1:1 th scale is equipped with a Caterpillar C15 ACERT engine delivering 476hp Net Power. The truck has a operating Weight of 157.000lb and a Body Capacity of 32.9yd3 which creates nominal Payload Class of 40 tons.

The Caterpillar 770 Off-Highway Truck is the first new Diecast Masters model to be released in their "Core Classic Series" and not in their not in the "High Line Series". In itself an interesting choice, but that is why the scalemodel, with the exception of the lack of luxury tin packaging, is certainly no less.

Like the 1:1 machine, it is the smaller version of the Caterpillar 772 Off-Highway Truck that was already released in 2009 by Norscot under #55147.

My first impression: The direct eyecatcher is, just like with its bigger brother 772, the centrally positioned cab. Other key Features of the Caterpillar 70 Off-Highway Truck are its detailed cab interior, including "Bob" the operator. Authentic Cat Machine Yellow paint and trade dress. Naturally the truck bed raises and lowers. Finishing touch are the grab bars, ladders and authentic trim detail. In one word: NICE!

If you are in the possession of photos or the hard copy original brochure or specsheet about the 1:1 770 Off-Highway Truck I would be happy if you send your response to
