Husqvarna DXR 310 Is A Remote-Controlled Demolition Robot

Need to get rid of a wall? Forget the sledgehammers and unleash the wrath of the Husqvarna DXR 310, a bear-sized, remote-controlled demolition robot.

Designed for getting rid of structures in constrained spaces, where explosives or wrecking balls won’t exactly make sense, the rig puts maneuverability at a premium. It can take a range of attachments too, including drills, jackhammers, claws and scoops, ensuring capable function through a wide variety of jobs.

The Husqvarna DXR 310 is a hydraulic robot that’s ran by a fumes-free 22kW electric motor. Armed with a remote control, you can propel it with no physical help, rolling on dual tank-style tracks and propping itself up steadily using four independently-adjustable outriggers. The track gauge can be changed as well, allowing it to fit through doors as narrow as 2.6 feet. Arm has three full joints for flexible operation, as well as a long reach spanning 18 feet.

While the company is pitching it for use in risky demolition areas, such as stairwells, roofs and piping, you can run it pretty much anywhere. Drive it up the parking lot and use it to whack a hole on the roof of the car that stole your parking space, or arm it with lasers and scare the crap out of everyone in the mall, all while you’re hiding stealthily behind some fat dude eating tacos and sweating profusely.  Yes, some random fat dude eating tacos and sweating profusely.

A literal seek and destroy automaton, the Husqvarna DXR 310 is all the robot you need to lay down a path of destruction. Bring this with you the next time you visit a maze and carve yourself a straight path to the exit. No word on pricing, but having a  remote-controlled predator at your beck-and-call should be quite expensive.
