JCB Dancing diggers at Bauma 2013—a construction trade show hosted in Munich, Germany April 11 to 17. This performance includes Segways, spring shoes, choreographed dancers and machines. (the performance starts around 1:00)
Here’s the full performance at ConExpo 2011
And here’s a recap of the performance at ConExpo 2009:
Obviously, these operators are talented. They take more than 80 tons of heavy equipment and choreograph the movements, hydraulics and steering to make the machines look elegant. The teams of Dancing Diggers are trained professionals who can turn a machine on its side and use a bucket arm to make a backhoe look like it’s doing a handstand.
