Everyone, regardless of age, loves getting to grips with the controls of these giant diggers!

These JCB 8065 tracked excavators are one of the mainstay workhorses of the construction and civil engineering industries, and these specially adapted machines are a firm favourite with Diggerland visitors.

So climb aboard… get a brief one-to-one overview of the machine and its controls from one of the specially trained marshals… and you are good to go!

Scoop up a bucket full of soil, swivel about and dump it… and then scoop up some more!

It seems simple enough… but it is a lot more challenging than it looks!
