  • Timber! Mercedes Zetros Log Truck from Majorette

    Here we have a 1/87 scaled Zetros from Majorette.

    A few months ago, Stampede showed four different Zetros models in the Majorette bay ("A Zetros for Every Purpose" -https://www.diecastgarage.org/node/289590).

    Long time ago I heard that the log truck issue will also be released with a matching trailer in Majorette's trailer assortment. Sure enough, I was trying to find that combi pack. Finally found the pack at a local supermarket in late September.

    As mentioned in my Zetros Fire Engine post back in March (https://www.diecastgarage.org/node/253475), the model is exactly 1/87 scale in width which is a huge plus in my book!

    The crane can be moved in pretty much any direction. Cab, stake bed on truck and trailer are metal, the rest is plastic. Love the wavy grain in the "wood".

    Enjoy the photos!

      I have to say, out of all the Zetros' I have this log truck is definitely my favourite (thanks for linking to my previous post as well). One thing I wasn't expecting was the heft, with the stakes being made of diecast. Really liking this release - the trailer adds a nice dimension and plenty of play value.

        Looks great! I keep "planning on" picking it up, but never have.

        I really like how Majorette implemented the knuckleboom crane on the Zetros tooling. The one on the Tomica "Rescue Truck III Type" may fold up neatly, but it really can't lift anything. Majorette designed the knuckleboom on the Zetros to be sturdy, capable of lifting small accessories, fit behind a cab as a loading crane, and able to be fitted with either a hook or grapple. I have the basic bed version, as well as a fire version.
