Never seen one like that...amazing. its much faster, quieter, and can be driven over pavement without damage. I have only ever had experience with one rubber tracked machine and that was a Cat challenger back in the early 90s. Needless to say I was impressed with the power. I did however have an issue with using it to back the disc harrow in the shop. I wasnt prepared for how quickly a tracked vehicle with a steering wheel would turn. Can you say jackknife? :roll:

Does this mean the end of the old fashion motor grader? I hope not they're better looking.

I don't think so Dan. You can't do ditches as easily and we do need then for run off. It is the track dozers this competes with.

That thing reminds me of the runaway gang mower on the little rascals that was chasing the golfers all over the golf course.

I like the laser guided front blade on that thing. Laser technology on heavy equipment was just getting a good start when I quit operating.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Yep, when he locks into the grade laser, he's just "Ridin' and Guiden' ". I ran a small dozer in the '80's that had first generation. It had 3 lights that told the operator if he was above or below grade. The new ones do it all, even linked to engine speed and load.

Before I left Cat, they demoed an excavator that ran by computer. The operator set the control to "Learn", and dug the ditch to grade, then flipped the switch to run, and the machine dug the ditch. This included moving the trackhoe back.
Best,
Mike

Not savy enough to post link but check out CAT COMMAND at NAVAJO MINE On youtube. Its CATS new self driving mine haul truck all computer driven no operators on board the truck. My youngest son Justin is a mine engineer at that mine in Farmington New Mexico. He says they are cool to work with they follow same path so close they wear grooves into road if they dont send them a course correction every so often.
