The Zoomlion 64X-6RZ is a concrete pump and in this model version it is mounted on a Mercedes-Benz Actros chassis.  It has a theoretical output of 120m per hour, and the boom can reach around 60m.  The box advertises the machine as having a carbon boom.

Packaging

The model comes in a Zoomlion branded box with a carry handle and inside it, the model is contained within plastic formers.  The model is fixed to the base with twist ties which are frustrating to remove.

The review model had no defects or missing parts.

A pointer is included with the model.  There is no information about the real truck.

The model is in the unusual scale of 1:38.

Detail

The truck chassis is based on a Mercedes-Benz Actros and the model is reasonably detailed underneath, with a number of parts modelled in plastic.  The wheels are nicely detailed, and the tyres are the same on all axles.

The cab is a recognisable Actros truck, and it is detailed with a grille, lights, and plastic mirrors, and the Mercedes-Benz logo.  The interior detail is fine, with a detailed console.   There is no number plate as this is a generic model.

The front outriggers have two rigid plastic sections and the thinnest section is metal.  The rear outrigger beams are metal.  The large rear pair are nicely decorated with graphics, and includes the rear lights.  There is some nice detailing of access plates.  The outrigger pistons have visible screw threads.

The carrier deck has diamond plated texturing, and the pump piston tubes are modelled in plastic with an excellent colour match.  At the rear the hopper has a large grille and various components are detailed under it.  Plastic steps rise up to the deck on one side.

The metal boom is very heavy and made up of five main sections, with the top one split so there are six sections in all.  The connection rivets are fairly large but blend in with the colour scheme.  The slewing ring is nicely modelled, and a single hydraulic ram controls the first boom section.  All the rams have jackets with tough plastic.  The metal pipework is modelled well, and a plastic length of discharge hose is fixed to the end.

Features

The model is heavy so rolls well. The linked front two axles have a fairly shallow steering angle.   The rear axle also steers.

The cab doors open and shut.

The cab tilts to a good angle.

The front three-stage outriggers extend, and the rear beams rotate outwards.   The pads can be screwed down. 

All the boom sections are controlled by rams which rely on friction to hold a pose.  The grade of plastic means the ram are sticky and jerky to extend.   Despite the very heavy boom, almost all poses can be set.

The boom rotates smoothly.

The hopper lid can be opened and closed

Quality

It has a high metal content with some plastic used, mainly on the chassis.  The quality level is very good.

The paintwork and graphics are also very good.

Price

It is good value for a large and heavy model.

Overall

T
he scale of 1:38 is very uncommon so posing it with other models may not look right, except with the matching truck mixer. This concrete pump looks attractive in Zoomlion's colours.
