Have you ever driven a real digger?
Try manoeuvring this huge vehicle around the gravel pit and practice dealing with the shovel. Who is clever and has loaded the gravel faster?
In the gravel quarry you will learn how to manoeuvre a digger and also how to use its bucket (the front/digging element). Who can dig out the gravel quicker?
Sure instinct needed for steering
After the introduction you can try using the digger for yourself. So far, so good? Forwards and backwards, you will try to manoeuvre the huge machine around the pit and a bit more. Using the pneumatic excavator you will also dig the gravel out of the river. You may also be able to end the event with a ride on the historic old crawler dumper − over and across the gravel heap and through the water and the swamp.
And another thing…
You will always be accompanied by a specialist, so don’t worry about losing control of this huge machine. The vehicles are all very modern (with the exception of the dumper) and are equipped with particle filters and do not cause more environmental pollution than your own car or oil heating. When not being used for this activity, these building machines are used in everyday work which may also mean that not all requested dates are always possible − please enquire regarding dates!
One or two building machines (depending on group size), welcome coffee or drink, supervision by specialists.
Options / tips

All this digging is sure to make you hungry!
