Jcb hmee

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone point me in the direction of, or give me themselves, some facts and figures on the JCB HMEE? I've been given said equipment as a subject on which to deliver a 5 minute 'presentation'. As I am a Loggie that doesn't even wear green on a daily basis and and has never heard of these before today, I had to google it to find out that it is an High Mobility Engineer Excavator, I am am hoping that this is the best place to ask for more info.

    I'm looking for the basics, dimensions, weights, speeds, configurations (can it be fitted with different kit, the same way as a case can lay trackway, dig holes or be fitted with forks) who uses them, what licences are needed for it and all that good stuff.
  2. That's perfect, thank you.
