Review of Bauma 2022
Lots of news during Bauma
During Bauma (October 24 to 30, 2022) at the Messe in Munich, we showed quite a lot of scale model news. Did you miss it? No problem, in this recap we tell you all about the WSI news. The texts contain links to the Bauma newsletters we sent out.
For Liebherr, we showed the Liebherr PR 776 Mining Dozer with several new features and updated diecast tooling. Also the Liebherr LTM 1120-4.1, a 1:87 four-axle diecast crane model equipped with realistic features, including extendable outriggers and boom.
And, of course, the long-awaited Liebherr LTM 1650-8.1. Our best crane model yet, considering its details and functionality. Features of the crane, such as the VarioBallast® system and various boom configurations, are included in this 1:50 diecast scale model of the LTM 1650-8.1
But that was not the only news that we had during Bauma. We also announced the new scale models of the Nooteboom MANOOVR semi low loaders. Unique features are the ultra-low loading floor height and the high legally permitted axle load. The combination of the 780 mm floor height with at least 12 tons per axle line makes the MANOOVR exceptional anywhere in Europe.
Broshuis construction semi low loader
We were also allowed to present the first model of the Broshuis demo line. The unique feature of this construction semi low loader is its extremely low weight. In addition, this 4-axle trailer is equipped with wheel wells. By extending the semi-trailer, you create an extra wheel well on both sides, allowing you to easily transport almost all wheel loaders.
Palfinger Knuckleboom Crane
Palfinger came out the PK 165.002 TEC7 self-loading Knuckleboom Crane. WSI made a scale model of it, highly detailed and functional. Some features include aluminum boom sections (no plastic boom), a folding reel and fully movable outriggers (front and rear).
Scania 6-in-line 13 liter engine
As icing on the cake, in cooperation with Scania, WSI Models has developed the 6-in-line 13 liter engine in the special 1:12 scale. The engine is presented in a sturdy plastic showcase and features the distinctive nameplate on the bottom plate.
