JCB is now offering a versatile pothole patching solution based on its successful HydraDig machine. Called the PotholePro, this new variant is equipped with a cutter, planer attachment, and sweeper brush. The hydraulics of the standard HydraDig have also been tweaked to allow the machine to drive the planer attachment, developed in partnership with Italian attachment specialist Simex.

The machine has already been tested extensively with a number of UK contractors and has now been released for sale. The firm aims to capitalise on the massive need for road repairs in developed nations.
