Flying Finn takes all singing, all dancing JCB Hydradig

I recently received a great video from my great friend Olli Paivio of Finnish magazine title Koneporssi.

The video below features Finnish owner operator TMI Toni Arvila, who earlier this year took delivery of his latest machine, a British built JCB Hydradig 110W wheeled excavator, which was supplied by Finnish JCB dealers Mateko Oy.

Of course, being an excavator sold into the Nordic region it has been comprehensively specified to meet Toni’s requirements. The machine is fitted with a Rototilt R4 tiltrotator with full ICS system c/w gripper and Oilquick bottom hitch, POME quick coupler set ups front and rear, tipping trailer with hydraulic braking system, ultra-wide Nokian Ground Kare tyres, tinted anti-glare cab glass and full LED Nordic style working light package.

Most of Toni’s work takes place in and around the city of Lahti, but he has been known to travel further afield if required. The machine and trailer combination is easily spotted around Lahti with its unique tiger style livery, cue the music, Tiger Feet by Mud!

The video is in Finnish language but its still a good watch and its great to see Toni’s smart looking Hydradig in action during the footage.

We thank Olli for sharing the video with us here on the Digger Man Blog. Thanks also to Mateko Oy’s Instagram page for the photos contained in this post.
