The Wacker Neuson TH755 Telehandler weighs around 10.5 tonnes.

This model is 1:32 scale.


The model comes in a Wacker Neuson branded box and is wrapped in soft paper and 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.  A spare beacon light, pins and a spring is included.


Starting underneath, the transmission and axles are modelled in detail, and there is some detailing in the castings.  The tyres have an impressive tread pattern and they are mounted on nice wheels which are detailed on the outer faces.   The wheel arches are plastic, probably reflecting the real machine.

The cab has a beacon light and work lights, and the windscreen wipers are very thin.  There is a plastic protection guard on the roof. The window frames have realistic seals and there are graphics on the windows.  Inside the cab the larger scale enables detailed controls to be modelled and it looks good.

Below the cab there is a highlighted filler cab and textured steps, and a maximum speed sign.  Behind the cab there is another filler cab and a wheel chock, and a hydraulic hose connection runs to the boom.

At the rear of the body there are twin light stalks and counterweight blocks.  There is a non-useable towing hitch.

The curved engine cover has sharp graphics and the exhaust protrudes from the rear.  A large mirror support is in soft plastic with nicely silvered mirrors.

The boom has hydraulic pipes highlighted on the underside and there are work lights at the top.  There are warning graphics and the attachment connector plate is metal with tiny friction pin connections.

The forks are metal.


The model rolls well as it has a nice solid weight.  Both axles steer to a good angle, and the rear one has significant oscillation to cope with rough ground.

The boom elevates to a steep angle and the rams are stiff and hold any pose.  The telescopic section extends smoothly and locks at full extension. 

The attachment plate has a full range of up and down movement allowing the bucket to achieve very good tipping and carry angles.

The forks are adjustable and can be removed by taking out the four connecting pins.


This is a high quality model with a high metal content where you would expect it. 

The graphics and paintwork are excellent.


It is good value.


This model has a high quality feel and looks very realistic.  As usual for NZG, both the functionality and the detailing are of a high standard. 


The model was released the Bauma Exhibition in April 2019.
 Slightly different versions were produced as the Kramer KT557 (model #986) and Kramer 5507 (model #987).
