Have you figured out the manufacturer of the backhoe from Wednesdays post? If you haven’t and you still want to challenge yourself stop reading….now. For everyone else the answer is…JCB. Two time DDD contents winner Kurt was the first to respond with the correct answer of the JCB HMEE, military slang for High Mobility Engineer Excavator. A little digging on the HMEE (thanks again Kurt) revealed a very informative video of this versatile JCB being put through the paces. Some of the facts that impressed me are…

  • 4 Wheel Disc Brakes with ABS
  • “Crab Walk” steering
  • A two man cab
  • Auxillary hydraulic connections for power tools like jack hammers

The more features listed the more you think you are reading an ad for a luxury SUV.
