Caterpillar J619 Elevating Scraper [Custom 1:50]

12 May 2024

This week I received the first pictures of this unique resin replica in 1:50th scale:

  • Caterpillar J619 Elevating Scraper

 The "J" in the type number stands for "Johnson". The Johnson Manufacturing Co. delivered the Johnson J919 Elevating Scraper, which used the Caterpillar 619 Series C Tractor as their motor unit. Caterpillar rebranded and launched the Johnson J919 Ladderscraper as their Caterpillar J619 Elevating Scraper in 1964. The Scraper bucket capacity is 18 cubic yards heaped and the Caterpillar D340T, four cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine provides a top speed of 31mph. The complete history of the Johnson J919 Elevating Scraper and later rebranded Caterpillar J619 Elevating Scraper Series can be viewed in the "Classic Machines" category on NZ Contractor magazine

This knock-out "Golden Oldies" scale model of the Caterpillar J619 Elevating Scraper will be realized in a “Old Highway Yellow” Civil version and the correct Johnson and Caterpillar markings in very limited numbers.

If you are interested in this hand built scale model or kit from the Caterpillar J619 Elavating Scraper respond by e-mail to and I will forward your request. The custom builder does ship worldwide at actual shipping cost and you can pay with PayPal.    

A little sneak peek with the first photos of the model!
