Cranes and Lifting Equipment

Here are some photos of my cranes and other lifting equipment that are used to lift a slot car clear of the track quickly after a loss of control or crash.

JCB Loadall

This JCB can lift the cars out of the gravel traps when they (I) crash. If you want one, look in Sainsbury's.

Britains Loadall 520

This is another JCB Loadall made by a different manufacturer, Britains. It is also a different model as it is a JCB Loadall 520. I have 2 of these models. One of the JCBs has a broken jib so it cannot be extended. It must be a weak point as the other one is cracked in the same place. It needs a length of chain to attach to the F1 car in a dangerous position.

Polizei Crane

Made from green plastic and in Polizei (German Police) livery. It will go well with the Scalextric Polizei BMW police car. No idea who it was made by.
