Details

On all sorts of construction sites, in road-building, on farms and estates, everywhere you go all over the world you’ll see a JCB backhoe loader at work. The principles of the machine were laid down in the 1950s, yet successive developments have kept it at the forefront of its market.

Contractor and JCB enthusiast Tim Starkey-Smith has organised the filming of some 24 key machines in operation, either superb restorations or versions in daily work. After looking back at the Trencher, the DVD gets under way with a Mark 1 from the mid-1950s. Tim shows how this evolved over the next twenty years through models such as the Hydradigga and JCB 1 Gravedigger to become the massively popular 3CII and 3CIII.

JCB didn’t rest on their laurels. In 1980 they again transformed the machine with the arrival of the white cab 3CX. With examples from Projects 5, 6, 7, 8 and 12 Tim brings the story up to date with Project 21 3CX and 4CX.

The backhoe loaders – and a couple of JCB dumpers - were filmed over three years at a wide range of sites in the British Midlands. The filming is complemented by Tim’s knowledgeable script which is narrated by David Holt.
