We’re suck­ers for mil­i­tary-spec equip­ment, so we couldn’t go past this JCB HMEE (High Mo­bil­ity Engi­neer Ex­ca­va­tor) back­hoe loader.

It has an op­er­at­ing weight of 16.2 tonnes, 149kW (200hp) gross en­gine power, and a max­i­mum dig depth of 3.9m – and it can hit 96km/h on the straight so it can keep up with mil­i­tary con­voys.

The HMEE is four-wheel-drive and four-wheel-steer and is based on tech used on JCB Fas­trac trac­tors.
