JCB 6C Hydraulic Excavator (Classic archive video)

This excellent JCB promotional video has recently been posted on You Tube. I know so many of you enjoy these old classic film clips from the response I get from the postings, so here is another one for you all to enjoy.

The JCB 6 was first introduced in 1966, but in 1971 the JCB 6C and 6D entered the market as upgrades. Both machines were powered by a six cylinder 106hp Perkins 6.354 diesel engine. Although the two machines were virtually identical the 6D was fitted with an extra wide undercarriage. These excavators which were state of the art at the time had a maximum digging depth of 22ft and a maximum reach of 31ft.

Would be great to see more of these from other manufacturers, so if any of you would like to share them with us on the Digger Blog, please get in touch!
