Radio controlled CAT 287B - Skidsteer
Lausoe Service ApS developed a radio controlled CAT 287B - Skidsteer.
The radio controlled Skidsteer has been developed to access areas not suitable for human beings - e.g. because of coal dust, pellet dust, fallout danger, or danger of falling objects.
The radio controlled Skidsteer can also be used in areas with rough surface that presents a health risk to the driver.
All controls of the machine and shovel can be both traditionally/manually controlled and radio controlled. There is no difference in speed, maneuverability, and functions whether the machine is controlled traditionally or remotely.
The video below shows a test-run of the radio controlled machine.
