Container Reachstacker

This new item is a must have for intermodal modelers. The Reachstacker is designed to lift loaded containers into the wells of double-stack cars. It can stack containers as much as six high, double the capability of the Piggy-Packer. Our model is based on the PPM Super Stacker prototype which later became part of the Terex line. Our design includes a die-cast undercarriage with plastic body and arm, etched metal and plastic details and clear windows. The die-cast undercarriage provides enough weight so the model can hold a container with the arm extended without tipping. All wheels roll and the rear wheels are steerable. The arm is poseable, movements include raising and lowering, extending from the nested arm segments and a rotating grabber at the end to lift containers from 20' to 53' long. There are tabs on each end that will grab just about every N scale container made and hold it aloft. (We couldn't test every one on earth!) All models will be decorated and assembled, no kit is being offered. The first run is being announced in two batches. This first batch includes generic color schemes and manufacturer logos, we will announce the second part of the run with railroad names and logos next month. Two-color models usually have a colored body with black arm and grabber. Both batches will be released together. The target MSRP is $79.95, railroad logo versions may be higher.
