The Caterpillar 983B Track Loader in 1:48th scale was in 2014 released by CCM.
This die-cast scale model is made in a limited edition of only 783 pieces in 2014 By CCM in scale 1:48. There is also a version equipped with a closed cabin and a ripper.
The Caterpillar 983B Standard version Track Loader scale model features an fully articulated bucket, lift arms, and hydraulics and the track assemblies are completely functional with free-rolling sprockets, rollers, and metal track links. This version has an open ROPS, a general purpose bucket and counterweight. The scale model is packaged in a deluxe gift box and comes with a signed certificate. New feature! CCM has changed their packaging into a very sturdy hard carton box! Very good development. Keep them coming those models!
I'm the happy collector with in possession #700.
In 1978 the largest track loader that had yet been made by the Caterpillar company was introduced: the Caterpillar 983B Track-Type Loader.
