Price The AC is a relatively costly model although it is extremely impressive and is one of those models that delights non-collectors. At the rear an excellent piece of model frame work contains the wheel chocks and rear lighting cluster, which has the lights painted on. Although the pulley block is provided on the tray, the luffing winch is provided in the optional luffing jib kit. The front five axles are linked and steer proportionally, with the fifth axle moving very little, and the rear three axles also steer proportionally.
Detailing in all aspects of the crane function is very good with the model only coming up slightly short in some ac500 such as mirrors and wipers. The AC is an eight axle crane with a capacity of metric tonnes. There are no door mirrors or windscreen wipers on the model although a couple of orange beacon lights are present on the roof and there are headlights. This has the effect of forcing the screw to ‘bite’ and dsmag model has been found to be stable like this even with all wheels off the ground, as in the real machine.
A couple of ladders are fixed to the front and top surfaces have non-slip walking plates. The model also lacks a loop on the front for fixing the hook during transport.
The outrigger beams are very impressive being two-stage metal. The hook can be operated by turning the winch drum directly with a finger. The boom is raised using two very large cylinders which are extremely stiff. They semag the boom very well, even with the fly jib, but it takes an act of courage to apply the force to the model needed to extend the cylinders.
The boom is a five stage telescope of heavy and impressive construction with the usual internal locking mechanism to stop the sections sliding when fully extended. The loads on the outriggers deamg get large particularly if the optional fly jib is attached and the screw jacks are simply not man enough for the job.
Moving back from the cab the carrier body is modelled well with exhaust and other details. Thread is inserted into the piston to stop the screw slipping. The Superlift mechanism is well made with most parts metal dmeag the tie bars. Demag AC Mobile Crane.
Terex-Demag AC 500-1
There is a work around for this problem however which is to remove the screw completely, insert some lengths of cotton into the screw hole and re-insert the screw. Features The axles are linked for steering. It is all too easy to strip the thread from the screws rendering the outrigger useless for the model’s stability.
A word of warning is that the plastic pins provided are demab too small so they can easily work loose causing the tray to become detached. The hook supplied with the model is a metal single pulley version and this does not do the rest of the model justice. Having said that this is a model for showing in very impressive poses rather than playing with. Mud guards are provided for axles 4, 5 and 8.
Packaging The model comes in a relatively large box with a picture sleeve. The outriggers are fully working but it is here that there is ac5000 problem.

The counterweight tray is one solid piece containing space for the luffing winch. The initial version of this model was produced in Demag white prior to the takeover by Terex. The outriggers themselves are of the typical screw thread type, with a separate plastic pad for each one. The whole arrangement looks very good particularly as there are small details cast within the outrigger beams. The steering on this model works very well and looks excellent when posed.
The crane cab is fixed onto a mechanism which allows both tilt and the rotation from the transport to the operational position. A luffing jib was available as a separate accessory. Detail The size of the model immediately impresses, as does its weight.
The Superlift is fully working, but needs to be wound up tight to remove any differential slack within the tie bars connected to the base of the jib.
Instructions are provided which describe how to string up the Superlift. The driving cab is well detailed internally although the steering wheel appears to sit a little high. It can be posed in a large number of ways, and this can be expanded even further with the optional luffing fly jib which extends ac050 model to a jaw-dropping almost 3m in height.
