Jcb Machines Head To London For Jubilee
JCB machines from the past and the present were given a patriotic send off as they headed to London for Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
JCB is a Platinum Jubilee Pageant Partner and is providing five milestone machines spanning The Queen’s 70-year reign to take part in a spectacular parade through the capital next month.
Leading the way will be the Mark 1 JCB backhoe from 1953 the year of Her Majesty’s Coronation.
Next in line will be iconic JCB 3CX backhoes manufactured in The Queen’s jubilee years of 1977, 2002 and 2012
Bringing the parade right up to date for Platinum Jubilee year will be a 2022 backhoe powered by hydrogen.
It will also be a rare public outing for JCB’s brand new hydrogen-powered machines, which are currently being developed by the Staffordshire-based company as it explores the potential of hydrogen as a zero CO₂ alternative to fossil fuels.
