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

Benny is a small magenta skid-steer loader. Benny looks up to Scoop, and was first introduced in Snowed Under. Benny later became part of the main cast in Project: Build It, but didn't return in Ready, Steady, Build! as it seems he was replaced by Scratch.



Benny is very friendly. He gets most of his advice from Scoop. He calls Scoop "Big Banana" because he is big and yellow.


Benny is a magenta skid-steer loader and has a black and silver 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 looks fairly similar to Scratch with a few differences, including a backhoe arm and grabber attachment, and a different color.
  • In Project: Build It, Benny was voiced by Emma Tate who also voices Lofty (US dub).
