Nice design, but how on earth is the operator going to get into the cab?

Yeah it's got an 'anti-grav' generator off to the side there. Besides this machine is fully autonomous. The guy's only there for looks and added weight.

.....would make for a fun model to have especially if the these things never come to life in the 1/1 world.

I totally agree with Jack.This thing is not only hideous,but will probably be gutless.The excavator design is total nonsense as well.Maybe I'm too old school,but I don't want my loader to look like a Ferrari.THIS IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE WHAT A LOADER SHOULD BE!!! Just my opinion........

The ugliest/stupidest machines yet to be made, if that's what they plan on making in the future for equipment, then I am very disappointed, I want to see beast's and monsters for machines, not this crap Not talking Great review though.

No... Just... No....

The Cat 988H is the ugliest Cat loader they ever made. The cab looks like it fell through the bottom or something, no, even though I'm a Liebherr fan, the Cat 988B looks way better.

As a model, I love these Volvos......really like the Centaur.

As a real life piece of machinery.......I hope I don't see these kinds of machines for some time.
