World's first ETEC Mini Diggers to aid Europe’s largest archaeological project


Watling JCB has supplied Willow Hire with the first 19C ETEC Mini Diggers worldwide.

Massive congratulations goes to Dan O’Brian and the team at Willow whose purchase of two of the zero emission diggers will help with Europe’s largest archaeological project at St James’ Park in London. 

The huge project is along the HS2 rail link between London and Birmingham and is cutting an unprecedented slice through 10,000 years of British history.

Willow’s purchase of our ETEC Mini Diggers goes a long way to complying with London’s clean air project. Reducing the amount of harmful emissions being pumped into the air is essential and using electric products will go a long way to achieving that goal.

Noise is part of a vibrant city, however, according to government statistics, excessive noise can damage people’s health, contribute towards a range of physical and mental health problems, disturb sleep and affect people’s hearing, communication and learning. We fully believe the JCB ETEC Mini Diggers will contribute towards reducing noise pollution on this project as well as producing zero emissions. 

Special credit goes to salesman Mark Luff for making this happen so quickly, enabling Willow to meet the demands of the project.
