Comment on this model.

The TW110 has an operating weight of around 11 tonnes and is typically aimed at civil engineering and roadworks applications, particularly in confined spaces.


The model comes in a Terex branded box and is wrapped in soft paper and is contained in a pair of expanded polystyrene trays. 

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

There is no information about the model or the real machine.


Underneath, the metal chassis has the drive shaft modelled in plastic.  The rubber tyres have a deep tread pattern and they are mounted on metal hubs which are detailed on the outer faces. There are nicely cast metal stabilisers.

The body casting has good detailing of the curved facets and various panels are highlighted.  The graphics are sharp and include some warning signs.

The cab is delicately modelled and has lightly tinted windows with highlighted seals, and there are thin metal grab rails.  Inside the detail includes foot pedals and nicely formed controls.  The mirrors are plastic.

The double articulated boom is very detailed with excellent hydraulics.

The metal bucket has graphics applied.


It rolls well and there is a reasonable range of movement on the steering axle.  The steering axle also oscillates significantly.

The stabilisers pull down and the pads are pinned and rotate.

The whole boom pivots from side to side on a pivot.  The range of movement of the boom sections and bucket is reasonable.

The bucket is pinned and is removable. 


This is a nice quality model which has a high metal content.

The graphics and paintwork are very good.


It is fair value.


NZG has produced a good quality model for Terex, and the detailing of the hydraulics stands out.  It shares some body parts with the TC125 Midi Crawler Excavator model (NZG 902).


The model was announced at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in 2014 and appeared in October of that year.
