Prototype of Tonkin Replicas’ 988K – The Initial “Rock” Star


At Tonkin Replicas we are playing with some heavy “rock” stars.  The first act in our new Construction Line is the 988K. The 988K wheel loader prototype debuted at Bauma 2013 in Munich Germany. It was presented by our Regional Sales Director and generally all around Construction Line expert - Luc Lebel.  We are focusing on the wheel loaders first to provide our distributors and resellers an unparalleled opportunity to have a replica of the working wheel loader launched at Bauma 2013. 

The working 988k wheel loader has a Stage IV engine that is approved for the strict European Union (EU) standards as well as meeting United States (US) EPA Tier 4 requirements. Our 988K replica demonstrates Tonkin Replicas’ commitment and drive to excellence that the working 988k shows in its accomplishment of better fuel efficiency.

We plan on increasing the output of our Construction Line by acting globally and in the process starting locally.  We mean to accomplish this goal by focusing on providing the most popular wheel loaders to build a solid foundation for all the scale models we will build for Caterpillar.

In late fall of 2013, Cat dealers both globally and locally will see the world’s finest diecast replicas for the first time. We will build 5 wheel loaders so that there will be something for everyone who like 5 wheelloaders.  More details to follow… stay tuned.
