Schield Bantam C-35 Backhoe SpecCast NEW Construction CON003
highly detailed die-cast model is manufactured with over 200 intricate parts. Factory parts lists and drawings, as well as hundreds of photos and measurements, were used to accurately reproduce this replica.
Includes authentic markings and paint scheme, colorful package with history and actual photos of the Schield Bantam. Details include free-rolling individually linked metal tracks, removable crank handles to operate the cable rigging, and full 360 degree rotation on the base.
The Schield Bantam Company of Waverly, Iowa produced over 75,000 Bantam construction models over a 10-year period from 1949 to 1959. The eye-catching flame orange paint and defiant Bantam Rooster logo were ever present on their versatile crane, shovel, and backhoes. The very affordable, easily maintained and versatile Bantam quickly became a favorite machine with contractors, municipalities, and quarry and pit operators. Its "fast change attachments" allowed for many jobs to be completed from this one machine. There will be limited quantities of three verions of the Bantam C-35: the shovel, the crane with dragline bucket, and a backhoe unit. All three of these models will have working cable rigging so you can position each tool as you wish.
