Kramer is a German company and part of the Wacker Neuson Group.  The Kramer Allrad 3307 is a telehandler with a 7m maximum reach, and a 3.3 tonne maximum payload.  It weighs over 7.2 tonnes.  In the version of this scale model it has an access platform attached which can accommodate two people with a maximum payload of 300kg.


The box is a window style and is in Universal Hobbies colours rather than the original equipment manufacturer.  Inside, the model is secured to a plastic display base using ties, which take some effort to release.  There is no information on the box about the real machine.  The review model had no defects or missing pieces.


The first impression of the model is that it is nice and chunky looking, although not as heavy as expected because many parts of the model are plastic. 

Underneath, the chassis has various panels detailed and the transmission components are all replicated.  The tyres have a heavy and realistic rough terrain tread, and they are mounted on nice looking hubs.  Flexible plastic mud guards cover each wheel.

The cab is very detailed with realistic lights and mirrors adorning the outside, together with a beacon light and safety guard.  Inside, the detail is also very good and the larger scale permits a realistic dashboard, with the joystick control authentically modelled.  The rest of the body is good with a well modelled latch for opening the engine panel a highlight. The applied graphics are very good quality.

The first stage of the boom is metal and there is hydraulic hosing which runs on its underside.  All of the rest of the boom is made of high quality plastic which lessens the weight and improves the stability of the model, and there is further nice hydraulic hosing at the basket connection to the boom.  The basket is well detailed having an anti slip floor and good structure, and the handrailing looks realistic.


Both axles steer independently and an interesting feature is that turning the front wheels actually turns the steering wheel inside the cab.  The cab also features an opening door.

The boom can be raised and the single stage telescopic section pulls out smoothly and can be posed at any extension.  The connection to the basket is hinged so that it can be kept level.  The basket features an opening safety bar, although the gate that permits entry does not open.  The basket is screwed to the boom so alternative poses without the basket require some dismantling of the model.


This model is similar to many Universal Hobbies releases in that the plastic content is quite high.  However the use of plastic has been carefully managed so that visually it is hard to tell the plastic parts.  Paintwork and graphics are very good.


The model is relatively inexpensive and so is very good value.


Overall the 3307 is a high quality model and makes for an interesting display piece with the plastic base and larger scale.  It does enough to merit being highly recommended.


The model first appeared in September 2009.
