Comment on this model.

The TC125 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 on the review model.  One of the hydraulic lines was detached but was easily re-glued.

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


The rubber tracks have a tread pattern and they are mounted on fairly simple track frames. There is a metal dozing blade.

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 monobloc boom is very detailed with excellent hydraulics.

The metal bucket has graphics applied.


The tracks roll in a straight line but are rather loose so they easily come off the sprockets under any sideways force.

The blade raises and lowers.

The whole boom pivots from side to side at the boom foot.  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 a little on the pricey side for a small machine.


NZG has produced a good quality model for Terex, and the detailing of the hydraulics stands out.  It shares some body parts with the TW110 Compact Wheeled Excavator model (NZG 901).


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