Good stuff! That driver-less Komatsu dump truck made me cringe. I wouldn't call it autonomous, since it still needs a human to control it, just from the ground. That move looked dangerous as hell, with nobody else seemingly aware of what was going on, and with the kid at the controls having terrible visibility.
I can never get enough of the NASA KCS crawler transporters. Awesome machines! thanks for sharing the videos.

Komatsu developed the truck to be completely autonomous in the mining environment. In the close quarters of the MinExpo in Las Vegas it makes perfect sense to drive it tethered.

That's just a great blend of videos, thanks HD41!

I have never seen a Melroe M870 in action. It really looks like a harbour tug. When I look at those tires, you could use twi Wiking VOLVO 350F to build one in HO scale...
And this TATRA race truck is just pure fun to whatch, thanks for shring it!!

I also enjoyed the big KOEHRING. Did I get it right, the engine has 2000 horses? Really? Or did I got something wrong? It's costumized machine for a special purpose, so never say never...

BTW, I watched the HO related videos on this channel, the steel mill layout was fantastic and I just love this shredder. HD41, is that your work?
