A JCB telehandler with a difference was on show at the recent Dowerin GWN7 Machinery Field Days.

The normal popular yellow livery was replaced with a green.

But it wasn't any ordinary green, it was an Aston Martin green - the colour has been famously used by the British manufacturer of luxury sports cars and racing cars.

The one-off paint scheme is reflective of JCB taking an ownership share of Aston Martin and was originally designed to be on display for the Singapore Formula 1 Grand Prix, which is usually held annually in September.

With COVID restrictions in place and the F1 series forced to reschedule its events, the special-looking telehander was shipped to Australia.

JCB general manager - Western Australia, Renay van der Meulen, said apart from the change of colours, it was a regular telehandler "which attracted a lot of attention".

"It is nice to have it on show for the next couple of months," Mr van der Meulen said at Dowerin.
