This accessory is a hook block with 5 pulleys and is rated at 150 tonnes.


The model comes in a simple NZG branded blister pack.  There were no defects on the review part.

There is no information about the real hook.

Detail and Features

The part is all metal with the end plates visible within the casting.  The pulleys are metal and the hook is a good casting.  The graphics are yellow and black stripes.

The pulleys are free rolling and the hook rotates and can be set to the side so that the block stands correctly.  There are three tying off points at the top of the block.

Quality and Price

It is a high quality metal part which is fair value


This part poses well with other models and is a good match for a suitable crane model.  It is well made and recommended.
