Comment on this model.

The Liebherr PR 754 Crawler Tractor is a larger machine in the Liebherr range and it has an operating weight in the range of 35-41 tonnes.

The model is in the colours of Screg, a French construction company with a history dating back to 1898.  It is part of the giant Bouygues Group.


Unusually for a Liebherr model this one comes in a Conrad branded box which probably indicates it is no longer a current scale model in the Liebherr range.  The review model had no defects or missing parts.

No information is provided about the real machine or model.  There is no assembly required.


The metal tracks have bolt heads just visible on the pads.  They are mounted on track frames which have no working rollers, and the sprockets are plastic. 

The operator's cab has a simple interior and there are wipers on the front windows.  It has metal grab rails, painted lights and the air conditioner at the rear has a perforated texture.  Outside the cab the access platforms are textured with an anti-slip surface. 

At the rear the Screg graphics are reasonable and the ripper assembly looks good with lifting eyes in the frame and the ripper shank has a sharp tooth.  The colour match of the ram jackets is good.

The engine cover has more metal grab rails and a metal exhaust pipe too.  At the front the radiator grille appears to be plastic.

The blade assembly has some detailing within the casting and the cylinder jackets have pipes and other elements detailed.  The blade is very good.  The plates along the lower edge are detailed and there is a good structure underneath too.


The tracks are tensioned by spring-loaded idlers and roll well on a rougher surface.  The track frames are linked by a transverse bar so they can oscillate relative to each other.

The parallelogram ripper assembly is stiff and has two degrees of movement.  The ripper shank can be set at three different positions or removed completely.  The plastic locking pin is a little too thin and flexible and a metal one would have been better.

The blade can be raised and lowered with a good range of movement, and it also tilts forward.


This is a typically robust Conrad model with a high metal content.

The paintwork is good, and the applied graphics are reasonable if not the best.


It is fair value for a limited edition model.


It is good to see models made in the colours of construction companies and this one is a reasonably interesting livery.  The model is heavy and solidly made and is nice for a collection.
