A Futuristic Excavator That Works Hard and Looks Cool

The Volvo SfinX Excavator

Volvo Construction Equipment’s newest concept for the excavator, known as the SfinX, gives us a glimpse of the future – as little as six years from now. It looks like something that came straight out of the movie, Minority Report. 

The SfinX excavator comes with minimal bulk and reduced weight, making it more environmentally friendly. Gone with the diesel engine, in with a small fuel cell, which is said to produce electric energy that only emits water vapor and heat.

The SfinX secures you in an automated, clear detachable cab. After you are transported backward onto the base of the SfinX, the heavy equipment will do a quick laser scan to make sure you are secured.

With improved 360 visibilities from the cab due to being cantilevered, the cab also has the capacity to tilt; move away from the machine to increase visibility; and be removed entirely to be grounded in case you approach a biohazard area and need to work remotely, in the safety of inside the cab – with a simple touch of the computerized control panel touch screen.

With the convenience of a detachable cab, it will have a bucket cam in order to aid your visual from afar.

This impressive heavy equipment is said it will begin its first of the day operation by lowering the cab to you, and when the automated door opens, will say, “Hello, how are you today?” Kinda cool, huh?! However, I am going to assume it is a rhetorical question and you won’’t have to answer back.

The SfinX has rotating tracks, for easy maneuverability; a tail that will extend out to assist with a counterweight to avoid tipping; and wheels the changes shape for when you need increased ground contact.

Is yellow not your color? That’’s okay; you will have a variety of colors to choose from. Maybe blue is more your color? Or how about red?
