GO ON… Have a go if only for the sheer FUN of it!

Jump inside a 22 Ton Komatsu PC210 Monster Digger!

When you do, you will be stunned and surprised by the amount of technology available at your fingertips. Gone are the days when diggers were simple lever operated machines with the operator relying purely on his/her skill. Feel and experience to ensure the machine is worked safely and efficiently. Today’s excavators are computerised with “Equipment Management & Monitoring Systems” (EMMS), TFT screens with multi-function touch keys, and “fly-by-wire” joysticks. All of which combine to give you plenty to think about and really challenge your eye-hand coordination, judgement and confidence!

Dig… swivel… dump… swivel… dig some more! It sounds easy, doesn’t it? It’s not!!! And once you’ve mastered those basics… your instructor will give you some other, more demanding tasks to try your hand at. Test your ability, concentration and patience! When you think of unique experience days, nothing at all beats the Monster Digger!
