The 135s skid steer loaders are being enlisted for duty on the ‘JCB Robots’ driving experience at four Diggerland parks in Kent, Devon, Durham and Yorkshire.
They will join a host of JCB machines at the construction themed fun parks, which feature attractions such as driving the iconic JCB 3CX backhoe loader, riding in the ‘Groundshuttle’ – a JCB 540-140 with 15 seats, and being elevated to 18m in the air in a JCB 540-180. The Theme Park also has JCB 135 skid steer and 3CX backhoe loader racing experiences for adults, amongst other events.
The deal, worth £650,000, was placed through dealer Greenshields JCB and cements a long-standing relationship with Diggerland which was launched in 2000 by H.E. SERVICES boss Hugh Edeleanu. Hugh started in business back in 1972 with a single JCB backhoe loader, going on to build the UK’s largest specialist excavator hire company with a fleet of over 3,500 machines.
