    Is this the future?

    Excavator operating drone style.

    Just get machine delivered to site and you can operate it from the comfort of your own home. Set it up with EC Oil and have the fuel bowser call by and you are away.
    No living on the road, no 5 point PPE, no dirt, grease, shit. Get rid of a lot of the health and safety worries if no-one on most of the site.
    Looking at the videos with semi autonomous haul trucks. A couple of people could run a massive operation.
    Once we get self driving trucks as well I'll just sit at home.
    I think maybe the comments about working on Mars may be a little premature, but in theory why not.

    but you'd miss the crap under yer finger nails, grease ingrained palms and the smell of diesel ......... for a week or two
    If it's got tracks, wheels, t*ts, or an engine, at some point it's gonna give you trouble!!
