    It would be interesting to see the control set up. I notice about 5 independent functions for each wheel leg! In addition to all the various control options of the boom. I would sure enjoy a little seat time in that machine!

    I enjoy using my bobcat 320 excavator around the home place... but that articulating excavator takes it to a whole new level!

    I was surprised at the stability while at crazy angles on the slope.

    I remember when the first John Deer wobble stick controlled excavator came out. It didn't take near as log to familiarize myself with it as I thought it would.
    I'll bet someone who grew up with game-boys and X-boxes could master it fairly quickly.
    But to do something like whats in the following video may be another story

    Nice demonstration; assumedly stop motion, since the driver is absent for many of the shots.
