Newest robot

This is yet unnamed, although some nasty agro names do pop into mind when i look at it.
its completely hacked up mauldin asphalt paving machine that i bought on ebay for $300 bucks. Once the hacking was finished i installed a Mitsubishi L3E diesel engine, with a vickers hydraulic pump for hydraulic power and a big ol’ hydraulic reservoir the rest is still on the drawing board. the plan is to get it driving under its own power by July. (head to the grind stone).

also , keep in mind, it will look nothing like this when I am done, accept for the tracks. but even the tracks will look slightly different. i like to think that i am a sculptor and a robot builder, i want to gracefully merge the two, but in some case accentuate the prevalent seem between the two worlds.
Fabricated materials: stainless steel, bronze, and copper.
I always say “ if you cant hide it accentuate it”
The cruncher
The screech (based off a sound generated by Darwin)
Cant think of any more. Its hard to name these things. but what is in a name.
