GREENE, N.Y. — The Raymond Corporation is pleased to now offer die-cast scale models of two Raymond® lift trucks: the Model 7400 Reach-Fork® truck and the Model 8400 pallet truck. Both trucks have been replicated on a 1⁄12 scale and feature moving parts.

“These replicas include everything that would be part of an actual Raymond truck,” says Richard Baker, manager of marketing communications for The Raymond Corporation. “Great care was taken to ensure the models would represent the real lift trucks in thorough detail.”

The Model 7400 Reach-Fork die-cast model features a wide array of working parts, including a three-stage mast and pantograph mechanism. A pivoting door opens to reveal the meticulously re-created motor.

The Model 8400 pallet truck replica includes a swiveling handle and drive unit and a rotating handle. All the wheels turn, and the caster wheels swivel. The cover is removable to display the motor compartment.
