Watch: The evolution of British excavation on show in JCB classic movieadmin
This is an attention-grabbing piece of classic footage. Round about 1967 or so, JCB launched this entry in its Newsfilm sequence, which begins out discussing the good historical past of excavation in the UK together with the numerous miles of rail right-of-way dug by the legendary Navvies. It then pivots to sharing the most recent in JCB machines, which, in response to the video, can handle the each day output of the Navvies in ten minutes. There are some nice pictures of British infrastructure work and basic JCB excavators on the job.
