Dancing diggers to take centre stage at carnival

JCB’s world-famous Dancing Diggers will take a birthday bow at a Moorlands community event this summer as the company marks its 75th anniversary. Widely regarded as a 'down-to-earth version' of the Red Arrows, the legendary JCB Dancing Diggers will take centre stage in the main show arena at Cheadle Carnival on Saturday, July 4. There, the mechanical monsters will perform intricate and spectacular ‘choreographed’ routines with an elegance and split-second precision that belies their heavyweight construction. The World’s Fastest Tractor – a modified version of the famous Fastrac made in Cheadle – will also be on show. The tractor secured the title with a speed of 135.191 mph driven by motorbike racer and lorry mechanic Guy Martin at the wheel. Also lining up alongside the tractor will be the JCB GT - the world’s fastest backhoe loader with a top speed of around 120mph. JCB is also supporting the carnival with a £3,000 donation by sponsoring the main stage.
