Here at Masterhitch Europe Ltd, we are experts in the design and creation of all things plant related. Not only are we leading digger bucket manufacturers, but we can also make the best excavator buckets for any machines.
We also work very closely with our sister companies, including the very popular attraction, Diggerland Adventure Theme Parks.
About Diggerland Theme Park
If you haven’t already heard of Diggerland, it is a unique construction based theme park that allows children as well as adults, to drive and operate real life plant equipment. Diggerland have four UK based theme parks in Kent, Devon, Durham and Yorkshire. Visitors can enjoy the construction life for a day. The theme park has a large range of construction machinery including:
- Mini and Midi Excavators
- Dumper Trucks
- JCB 3CX Backhoe Loaders
- JCB SSL 135 Skid Steers
The majority of the plant equipment used includes high-quality excavator buckets and attachments, and that’s where we can help! As the machines are being operated by the public, we need to ensure the plant accessories created are the best quality possible.
Diggerland have 20 different rides and drives, each revolving around different construction machinery. Whether it be driving a dumper truck or navigating the course on a JCB Skid Steer, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
The Buried Treasure attraction at Diggerland involves the operation of a Komatsu PC14 mini digger. The digger is equipped with a Masterhitch Power Rake, which is used to dig through gravel to find objects.
The Power Rake has been created with four tynes which allows small material to pass through. It sorts larger objects from the bulk of material. The amount of spokes on the power rake attachment will determine how wide the attachment is, and how much material can be picked up. In this case, it has been built for a smal scale digger attraction that is user friendly, and is easily operable.
The most popular attraction to date across all four of the Diggerland parks is Spindizzy. The idea for this attraction evolved from the construction industry, incorporating a larger machine, a Komatsu PC210 digger. Here at Masterhitch, we have adapted standard excavators with unique excavator buckets. The design of this ride allows Diggerland customers to sit in the bucket of the machine, which is fitted with a restraint system for safety purposes.
Spindizzy is a typical thrill-seeker ride that you would expect to see at theme parks, which makes use of construction machinery in a unique way.
At Diggerland, telehandlers are used in a number of attractions. If visitors take a ride on Groundshuttle and Skyshuttle, a JCB 540-170 and a Manitou MT1840 will elevate them off the ground. Here at Masterhitch, we have custom made a bespoke carriage for both of these rides, which are fitted with seats and restraints.
Skyshuttle uses the reach of the telehandler by lifting customers 50 feet in the air, and Groundshuttle allows customers to enjoy a bumpy ride over rocky ground. These excavator buckets are made to a unique size due to the type of ride. We can of course make buckets and attachments to meet your specifications.
Our services do not stop there when it comes to Diggerland. We also make all of the standard excavator buckets for all of the mini and midi diggers, as well as taking care of any bucket repairs.
Additionally, we also ensure the machines, especially the excavators, are kept in a great standard. We offer ram guard replacement where required to guarantee the safety of the plant machines on site for all visitors.
We will be the first port of call for the design of new attractions for the park. Our latest project was Spindizzy, which was made a number of years ago. Is it time for a new addition? Watch this space!
