There’s heavy machinery, and then there’s the monster digger – 22 tonnes of mighty digging power and yours, for 90 minutes, with this Monster Digger Experience at the ever-popular Diggerland.
You’ll get behind the controls of a massive Komatsu PC210 Hydraulic Excavator to try your hand at working one of the biggest pieces of machinery a novice can experience. With a bucket that could fill over seven bathtubs and over nearly ten metres tall at full stretch you’ve never driven anything like it, though you’ll have an instructor with you at all times to help you get the hang of this giant engine.
It’s more challenging than it looks, so this’ll really put your skills and judgements to the test. If the other great machines around at Diggerland just aren’t quite hitting the spot then this Monster Digger Experience should be right up your street, so do your best to master digging pits, filling in holes and moving massive buckets of mud!
- Safety briefing and instruction from an expert tutor
- 90 minutes hand-on experience with a Komatsu PC210 Hydraulic Excavator
- Test your skills at excavating pits, filling in holes and moving around giant buckets of mud
- Experience gift pack including personalised voucher and message card
What happens on the day?
On arrival at your chosen Diggerland location you’ll be granted admission to the theme park to make your way to the Komatsu PC210 Excavator’s enclosure. You’ll be greeted by your instructor and given a briefing on safety and the controls before climbing into the cabin to continue your 90 minute one-to-one experience.
It’ll be like a heavy machinery ballet, as you work all of the controls in tandem to make holes, fill them, and move around huge buckets of mud, soil and more than a few very confused worms.
