JCB Operator Challenge

JCB Operator Challenge

As appointed JCB Dealer for the South Wales and South West of England, JCB HQ have invited us to host their National Operator Challenge with JCB Dealers across Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The operator challenge is the ultimate test to look for the best tracked excavator operator in the UK. This challenge is centered around the X-Series machines with the JCB 140X & JCB 245XR.

Taking place over a series of seven regional heats across the country, we will be testing your machine operating skills, precision and dexterity in two timed trials, with the top three regional finalists going on to compete in the final face-off at the JCB Quarry in June. As well as being crowned JCB's Excavator Operator of the Year 2024, the winner will also get an all-expenses paid trip for two to Las Vegas!
