Perhaps the most colourful JCB machine in the world is the ‘Rainbow JCB’! I mean who doesn’t love a rainbow coloured digger right?!

The uniquely decorated JCB 3CX backhoe loader is owned by machinery plant hire company Flannery Plant, a family company that started life in London in 1972 with a 3C JCB Backhoe Loader. #RainbowJCB came into being around 3 years ago to help promote the Building Equality campaign which has grown significantly in the last few years. The Building Equality campaign is dedicated to creating a construction industry what is wholly welcoming, inclusive and supportive of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and other related communities.

The special machine has appeared up and down the UK supporting Pride and inclusivity events. Crowds of over 1.5 million people attended the Pride London parade where the #RainbowJCB was one of the highlights.

A special 1:32nd scale model was even created for the machine so that Flannery could help thank people who supported their campaign. Even in miniature form, the 3CX looks amazing!

What a positive story and what a bright machine!
