Dancing Digger Ready to Rock EFD



Seneca Falls, NY. The popular daily performances by one of the world famous JCB Dancing Diggers will be at the 2016 Empire Farm Days at Rodman Lott and Son Farms in Seneca Falls, NY, on August 9, 10, and 11. An expert operator will maneuver an 8-ton, high-speed JCB backhoe in 10-minute choreographed ‘dance’ performances to contemporary music at the top of the hour from 10 am through 3 pm each day.

Liftech JCB, East Syracuse, NY, is sponsoring the performances that use hydraulics to lift the heavy machine off the ground in ‘handstands’ and rolls set to music.

“Empire Farm Days is a perfect venue for demonstrating the incredible power and versatility of our equipment while providing a fun experience for the farmers, families and business owners that attend the event,” said Ryan Curtis, Field Sales Manager at Liftech JCB, East Syracuse, NY, which is sponsoring the performances.

“Visitors will see first-hand the many capabilities of JCB heavy machinery, from lifting and pulling to digging and rolling, in these unique musical performances that are always crowd-pleasers,” said Curtis, a Dancing Digger operator.

Founded more than 40 years ago as a new and creative technique for demonstrating the power of the equipment, the Dancing Diggers have performed for heads of state and the Queen of England. The August 9-11, 2016 event will mark the second appearance of a Dancing Digger at Empire Farm Days.
