Komatsu Excavator Driving Experience Days

What is it about diggers that so many people love so much? Is it the danger? The daring? The once in a lifetime chance to try something new and exhilarating? Perhaps it’s the idea of making (or destroying!) something in a big and bold way that really gets the blood pumping and the heart racing. Whatever it is, these massive beasts and loved the world over, with only the lucky few able to use them in everyday life. But what if that could change? What if you could have a go?

Power, fun, and excitement are all rolled into one huge day out when you do actually get behind the wheel of a big digger. There’s mud, there’s destruction, and there is most certainly a lot of muscle involved in this epic adventure.

The Monster Digger Operator Experience

The Big Digger Experience Day is so much more than just driving that monster of a machine over the mud and dirt, leaving deep and dirty tracks in your wake (although that is certainly part of it!)…

When you arrive at your muddy and grubby (in the best possible sense, of course!) venue, you’ll be warmly welcomed by enthusiasts just like you. You’ll have a lot to talk about, but don’t chat for too long, as there is a safety briefing to attend. You’ll learn more about the machines you love (in this case, the Komatsu PC210 excavator), how they work, what they do, and how to drive one. You’ll also be fitted with your safety equipment (high vis jacket, hard hat, and safety boots) so that not only will you not come to any harm, but you’ll look the part too.

Then it’s on to the drive itself. Get comfortable in the Komatsu PC210 excavator and try your hand at digging holes, and filling them in, trying not to spray everything with muck as you do so. Think it looks easy? Just wait until you give it a go – dexterity and coordination are just as important as full on enthusiasm (but don’t forget to add a bit of that too – it’s a fantastic day out, after all!)!

Two friends can come along with you, so you’ll have witnesses to prove just how great you were at making your long held dream come true. And don’t forget, there are plenty of other things to do at the venue, and you and your guests can stay for the rest of the day to enjoy them – free of charge!

The experience lasts for 90 whole minutes, and you won’t believe all the things you can do in that time. You’ll certainly never forget this incredible day out!

This has to be the ideal gift for anyone who just loves the big diggers because this is one of the biggest. What a birthday it would be if the man or women in your life could have a go at driving an excavator – different, exciting, and an experience to cherish, this is perfect for adventurers looking to tick another vehicle of their to do list!

What We Think of Komatsu Excavator Driving Experience Days

4 out of 5

We have rated this experience 4 out of 5 stars. If you've ever wanted to get behind the controls of a massive digger then this one is for you. The Komatsu PC210 excavator is a beast and in this experience you get to control it, digging for Britain. This isn't a competitive experience and is more about learning and honing your digger operator skills. For some it might even be the start of a new career!

    • @Tracey – It’s not a daft question at all! You need to buy the voucher first and then have a period of time before you have to book, most normally 9-12 months.

Hi, I'm Dave, chief test driver, and in 2010 I was sent on an awesome JCB Digger Racing experience day. It was great fun and something that I never would have done otherwise. Bitten by the bug and now considered a JCB addict, I was then sent on the Dumper Truck Racing experience in 2013.
