Inspired by a similar pressed steel toy made in the 1950’s, this front shovel set on crawlers is scaled at 1:48 from the original machine and hand crafted from brass in the same style as the original toy.
With individually linked tracks, a functioning 3” long boom and stick and working bucket door, this model looks ready to go to work. Manually operated hoists raise and lower the boom as well as adjust the stick position. A “Unit Orange” finish and authentic markings complete this model.
This shovel is the last in a series of 4 unique configurations and will be a show piece in any collection of construction models as well as make a perfect addition to any “O” gauge railroad layout or display.

“Based on the success of this highly sought after toy, CCM created a Pipelayer kit to allow collectors the opportunity to make this great toy even better.
Designed to look as though this it could have rolled off the factory line along side the originals, this kit comes with everything needed to make your Doepke D6 into a fully functioning sideboom pipe laying toy.
With a 14 inch long boom and fabricated steel assembly, features include dual hand crank winches with thumb brakes – just like the original Doepke UNIT crane – boom suspension with three-part line, a custom two-part line load block and brass sheaves. Completing the kit is a solid cast resin “stacked plate” counterweight, complete assembly hardware, rigging and detailed assembly instructions. We have taken care of all the details to make sure you can have all of the fun.” CCM

Found this one on the internet years ago. If anyone has any details please share. What I do know is that it was built from a Unit 357.
Thank you CCM: The track mounted equivalent to the UNIT 357, whether used as a crane, hoe, or shovel, was designated as a UNIT 514. With the release of the CCM track assemblies, collectors were inspired to create toy machines of their own, like this scratch built UNIT cable hoe built from an original Doepke crane cab with a solid steel boom, equalizer and custom paint job with UNIT factory striping.
