Maybe cool but is it practical ? I can think of a few reasons why not

Well, it's just a concept as it stands now, but I liked the idea of the expanding bucket! (Coming soon from DruidFab Productions as soon as he sees this thread)

Oh i know it's just a concept but you have to think of practicalities in order to move the concept on. Expanding bucket is interesting but I personally think would be fraught with problems.

On a serious note it looks A LOT like the Doosan concept

Similar impractical features and impossible movements, rams that extend way beyond there size ect. As has been said, there are many points that just aren't practical in a working environment, maybe in the future, but a long way off IMO, and if we do get to a point where that is the future of excavation then would it need a driver?

I can't begin to believe that we will ever be using an excavator that doesn't consist of plenty of steel, massive strength through fabricated sections and big cylinders to do all the graft! How it's all powered is the near future and where things will change, it's happening now with hybrid.

What a complete load of garbage,every single aspect of what I have just seen is pure trash ! big bulky load of crap,I can just imagine one or two of the four tracks coming off because they have worn a bit more than the others and the glass cab with no glass at all so your just sat in the open air Ho lets have four tracks instead of two.....WHY ?....because of the extra expense of course ! I suppose it runs on helium or some other stupid type of fuel also ? Grrrrrrrrrrrrr !Roarrrrrrr !

The four track system looked just like a 4 wheel drive walker. There was even one lot offering a walker with tracks rather than wheels (Kaiser I think). I would have thought it would have the same problem as walkers do at present - just too expensive for normal use, but Doosan and Volvo have similar concepts.
VA boom is obviously good for a lot of people, but the built in breaker was tried on mini diggers a few years ago and never caught on. I guess the expanding bucket is to do away with a quick hitch, but you would have thought it would be fraught with problems in anything but the lightest use.
Heads up display would be good it you are using a digging guidance system.
What it didn't have was remote control, which I would have thought will be big in the future or even full robotics. Less people on site to get hurt, no transport time too and from site each day, no living away. Drive it from the comfort of your living room or at least local centers like the drones we use instead of manned aircraft out in the gulf. Our pilots live at home and go into work at a base in this country and control them out of a couple of portacabins.
