Two rare JCBs

For nearly two years, on and off, we've been recording JCB backhoe loaders for a programme to show the story of the machine's development. This October we were the guests of contractors and enthusiasts J C Balls & Sons who have two very special models. The photographs are by Dave Scott. See blog 24 August 2008.

The driver of this restored model is Kevin Balls.
