Comment on this model.

Kleemann is part of the Wirtgen Group and it manufactures crushers and screening plant.  It has a long history going back to 1857.

The MOBICONE MCO 9 EVO is a mobile cone crusher suitable for processing blasted natural stone and it can process up to 260 tonnes of material per hour.  The machine is readily transportable and has a weight of about 28 tonnes.


The model comes in a Kleeman branded box which has a high quality photo and technical information about the real machine in both English and German. 

There were no defects or missing parts on the review model.

There are a few parts to the model but no instructions.  Assembly is straightforward when the location of parts is identified. 


The undercarriage has plastic tracks with a very good colour match, and the metal track frames are simple, without working rollers.

The fixed hopper sides have a good structure and an optional hopper extension is provided as a separate part.  The conveyor structure looks good and the belt is rubber.  Metal handrails are on the walkway.  On top of the belt is the magnet and metal detector which has a plastic box.

The cone crusher is well detailed and the cone is visible inside.  There is a sensor holder above the crusher.

The metal body sides have sharp graphics with some panel detailing within the casting.  Plastic ladders lead up to the work platform.  The light pole is nicely painted.

The main engine enclosure is a large metal casting with grille details. 

The discharge conveyor belt is rubber and there is a detailed drive motor at the end. 

An optional side conveyor is modelled and it has a metal structure and rubber belt. It rests on clip-in metal supports.


The plastic tracks roll well.

The loading conveyor has a working belt.  It slides from a transport position to a working position.

The discharge belt also has a working belt.  The tip can be rotated to a downward position.

An optional side conveyor can be fitted on either side to discharge into the hopper. The brackets that support it in are clipped but cannot be rotated to a transport position.  It has a working belt.

The model strips down to make a good transport load.


This is a robust model.  A number of the smaller parts are modelled in plastic. 

The paint finish is very good and there are sharp graphics.


It is relatively pricey overall.


This is a well implemented model of a cone crusher. Plastic is used for a number of the smaller parts but overall the model looks good and the provided functionality works well.


The model first appeared at the Bauma Exhibition in April 2016.
