Have you ever said that there is a vehicle on the construction site that is running fast? Here you are with an engine of proven power and efficiency
The automotive world literally lives on speed records that excite racing fans, surprise “casual” enthusiasts and are always interesting to discover. What would you say knowing that there is a record even among vehicles that seem insignificant in terms of performance, such as work vehicles on a construction site for example?
Moreover, taking into account that the famous broadcast maximum speed I competed with the Stig aboard an automatic mower with an upgraded Honda engine, which shouldn't surprise you too much.
Thanks to JCB who can be proud of their products – but only to one customer in particular who made the modification and faced this mammoth project – Excavator equipped with idle engine.
The vehicle in question is called JCB GT Excavator This is literally what I read, a fully functional construction site vehicle equipped with all the tools needed for construction work…but with a V8 engine under the “hood”. We're not talking about a regular engine, certainly not! Let's see how it was born and why it is truly an electric car.
The fastest excavator in the world
The backhoe in question is a unique vehicle with Custom made frame Made of aluminum and equipped with a V8 engine that makes extensive use of racing components – such as Compstar pistons and a Crower transmission – capable of delivering over a thousand horsepower, which is crazy for a construction vehicle. In general, these vehicles have very large engines but depend on towing capacity, certainly not on cruising speed.
The backhoe in question has a previously recognized record Guinness World Records With the judges sending to witness the record which testified that the car could reach top speed 116.82 kilometers per hour, Almost like one of the best-selling city cars on the market.
The record has been broken at the Flame & Thunder 2023 event in Great Britain and it seems unlikely that anyone will be able to surpass it Without installing the aircraft engine On a vehicle of this size. This is why the world of motors is wonderfully interesting: someone always has an idea crazier than the previous one, and you never get bored of finding cars and vehicles with strange characteristics and unimaginable speeds.
