A hole lot of help
To most smallholders, a digger is manna from heaven. Kevin Alviti, a huge fan of the JCB 3CX Sitemaster, sees what it can do

Ask any parent of young children which word they uttered first (after ‘dada’ of course) and the answer is likely to be either ‘tractor’ or ‘digger’. There is something about big machines that inspires young and old alike and few things will bring a smile to someone’s face more emphatically than climbing into the seat of a digger to move some soil.

Many smallholdings have a digger parked up somewhere, or the farmer will have owned one in the past. They are an invaluable tool and you don’t have to dig far by hand to ask yourself if there’s an easier way to do it.

If there was ever one that suited a smallholding in every way it is the older JCB 3CX Sitemaster. As well as being so loved on building sites, it is probably the ultimate multipurpose digging machine, able to undertake landscaping, drainage and ditching with ease.
