Hi folks,

Does anyone know where a model of these might be found? I've had no luck with Google so far or the forum itself. Seems like a required piece of kit for any HSB oriented layouts. Whether or not it's an exact replica isn't important, seems they used a few things over the years, and as long as it's blue it should work fine.

Might it be one of these (with the bucket changed, and added detailing)?

if so, it's made by the Finnish company EMEK in 1:25 scale. Here's a picture of one from a similar angle to your picture . . .

Hope this helps

Not the exact model, but an accurate HSB blue coal loader in 1:22.5
GSmm Fuchs Bagger in 1:22,5
That is one of the other kinds seen on the Harz DR Network. The EMEK one with a change of livery and Bucket as David shows would also certainly fit the bill. Must post a pic or two to show the types that I have seen in the Harz. Using the wrong device at the moment.

EDIT as promised some pics of the varying devices on the Harz, not all close up as they never feature on my interest that much! But as ever I am glad that they made it into my pics.

Great stuff! David I think you are right about that one being the one featured in the vid. Price is right too at 25 EUR vs 125 EUR for the more prototypical one - too bad it's not a tracked model like the pics above, it's also missing a bucket. EMEK also offers the excavator with a Scania truck + trailer for 62 EUR.

Just looked on Amazon UK, they have a tracked version of the excavator at £32.

Hmm only £13 to deliver to Canada, something must be wrong there. Willing to give it a go though.

That would be my guess too.

That sure seems to be the EMEK model repainted, with a new bucket, and extra hoses and lights.

The lights appear to be Viessmann HO/00 units. Likely the #6330 Flood Light Spotlight model:
Viessmann 6330 Gauge H0 Flutlichtstrahler, nieder mit LED

Not sure where the new bucket came from - don't think it's a EMEK part.

While not 100%, you may want to look at the Bruder bucket attachment:

You could also look at Playmobil parts. One option could be the bucket from the Harbour Crane:

Or even some lego options:
