Mean Green Walking Machine

And it’s com in to the John Deere Pavilion this February.

The Walking Forester prototype is one of only two in the world (the other is in Finland) and was a test to see how the walking technology would work for uneven terrain.

I can’t even imagine how complex it would be to operate. I think each leg has to be moved separately, even though whoever is operating it in the video makes it look easy.

My practical side also has to wonder what kind of maintenance is needed to service all the legs and joints. I have to imagine it would make a track tractor look simple.

It will be on display at the John Deere Pavilion when it reopens on February 15. I see a field trip in my future!
