"Unreal, banana peel!"
— Benny's Catchphrases

Benny is a small magenta skid-steer loader.


He used to live in Bobblesberg with Zoomer. Sometime later, Benny left Bobblesberg and went to a machine hire company in Bobsville. When Robert and Dot went to stay in Yard, Robert contacted the machine hire company, as he needed a digger to help him out with the repair work in Bobsville. The company sent Benny over, who now helps Robert out. Occasionally when there is no repair work, Benny goes to Sunflower Valley to help out Bob, Wendy and the machines.


Benny is very friendly and is eager to help out on jobs. He looks up to Scoop, getting most of his advice from him. Benny also gave Scoop the the nickname of "Big Banana" since he is big and yellow.


Benny is magenta and black. He has a silver grille mouth.



  • Benny has the ability to change eye size.
  • Benny is always calling Scoop "Big Banana".
  • Benny is one of the few machines to have a human name.
  • Benny resembles Scratch with a few differences, including a backhoe and grabber attachment, and a different colour.
  • In Project: Build It, Benny was voiced by Emma Tate who also voices Lofty (US dub).
