Lift me up

A bit stretched out these (August) days, pertaining to time and schedules! Aren’t we all? Usually during the rainy season, building related construction activity is traditionally on the lean side. This year though is one of the exceptions for our company! Certainly, I can’t complain as this is good for business! Nevertheless, one needs to get something to ease the hectic pace, as at times it can be downright exhausting.

Fortunately, this hobby offers the breather and is indeed therapeutic. :-) by way of the ‘lift related business’ on commercial vehicles by Siku promotional. A backgrounder on the tampos would be in order. ABUS is a company specializing in lift hoist and cranes. STILL, an intra-logistic firm doing forklifts.

The ABUS vehicle Volkswagen LT28 is very hard to find in this part of the world.

Much thanks to my good friend for this ‘Made in West Germany’ marked, Siku VW LT28!

Getting the ABUS van surely lifts me in high spirits! Such great timing on its arrival :-)

STILL vehicle Volkswagen T4 was available locally for some years back.

Have to note that the actual STILL vans have them forklift atop them.

Hi Danielh, glad you liked them :-)
Been searching for the Siku VW LT28 for a long time. Having the ABUS version is hitting double jackpot!

Hi Mike, you have a keen automotive eye :-) great observation about the VW Vanagon! Certainly they have a striking resemblance :-) all in the family I guess. Size-wise, the Vanagon is a little brother as compared to the humongous LT28 brother. the 28 denotes that it is a 2.8 tonner load capacity :-) that huge.

Regarding the Vanagon numerous rectangular donut headrest :-)they are quite a sight. Happy you mentioned it :-)

Thanks
