Part of a Mammoet fleet.

This model is a MAN TGX XXL 8x4 + Ballast Box.  It is in the colours of the Dutch lifting and haulage specialist, Mammoet.


The box has some Mammoet branding and photos of some Mammoet equipment.  Inside, the model is contained within folded cardboard. 

The review model had no missing parts, but one beacon light was detached in the box and had to be reglued.

The only assembly to do is to fit door mirrors and add the ballast box.


The underside of the MAN has reasonable detailing in the plastic parts.  The tyres have a tread pattern.

The cab is metal and nicely decorated in Mammoet colours and a fleet number is included.  There are beacon lights on the roof, and the front grille is very good for the scale.

The equipment tower is plastic.

The ballast box is a metal part with sharp graphics.


The MAN rolls well although the rear axle on the review model was wobbly. It does not have steering.

The ballast box is removable.

The quality is good for an inexpensive model.

The paintwork has a good finish and the graphics are very sharp.


It is good value.


This is a decent model in 1:87 scale, and goes well with other Mammoet fleet models. It would fit well on a model railway layout in the same scale. 


The Mammoet model number is 900034.

MAN front is realistic.
