Diggerland Chairman Successfully Completes High Wire World Record United Kingdom

Diggerland Chairman, Hugh Edeleanu, successfully completed a unique and seemingly
impossible World Record at the Diggerland adventure park, located on the Medway Valley
Leisure Park complex in Strood, Kent, at 4:30pm on Saturday 25th June 2022. Hosting an
exclusive event at the Diggerland Kent park location, Diggerland’s flamboyant Chairman
invited fans to join him and witness this momentous occasion.
In front of an audience of over 1,500 people, Hugh successfully completed an incredible world
first stunt. Whilst 4 metres up in the air, Hugh drove a Komatsu digger weighing in at 2 tonnes
over a tight rope from one platform to the other, across a 30 metre distance.

Speaking of his accomplishment, Hugh Edeleanu commented: “I have done loads of stunts
over the years but this was one of the most challenging and certainly the most risky.

When asked if there were any more stunts planned for the future, Hugh said: “There will be but
I can’t tell you. I like to keep things a surprise. No one knew about this digger tightrope stunt
and people have been speculating about what was going to happen. I like to keep it exciting
and let everyone enjoy the show.”

Famed for his other World Records and unique displays using diggers in all manner of weird,
wonderful and wacky demonstrations, Chairman Hugh, who also owns the UKs largest Digger
Hire company, H. E. SERVICES really does not fail to impress.
Hugh’s previous records and stunts include: completing a World Record in 1997 for the fastest
journey in a JCB from John O’Groats to Lands End, not once but twice, knocking a whopping
11 hours off his previous record; to popping off a champagne cork using a digger and then
pouring out the champagne into glasses using the same digger, to then hosting events such
as Digger Wars (yes fighting diggers!) and Dancing Diggers. Hugh also played daredevil by
being swung around by a gigantic excavator whilst holding on with only his teeth! Oh, and let
us not forget, Hugh in 2012 drove a Komatsu digger completely underwater and back out
This latest digger tightrope stunt certainly impressed all the spectators, with one viewer
commenting, “It was most definitely impressive”. When asked what was going through their
minds whilst Hugh did his stunt, another viewer said, “I thought he was going to die!” Hugh
promises to continue to thrill audiences throughout the UK for many years to come.
