Backhoe Loader

This Backhoe uses mechanical muscles in place of hydraulics to cut down on moving parts, complexity and noise.
The wheels are semi articulated and can splay out to lower the vehicle's center of gravity and act as outriggers.

Self-Driving Fleet Vehicle Concept

I've been wanting to put a few of my self-driving 'auto' design ideas to paper so starting with this as my test bed.

One thing not shown here is them being covered head to toe with banner ads... but maybe next time.

Rocky Mountain National Park Plein Air

Managed to escape the bustle of the family vacation to RMNP with my iPad Pro. This isn't work i do too often so it's always fun getting into a rhythm and finding good shaded spots to set up on.
