Bobcat, booth G-4476

Other equipment on display: Compact excavators, compact track loaders, mini track loaders, telescopic tools carriers, utility vehicles, utility work machines and a variety of attachments.
Kespry, booth G-71803
The Drone 2.0 is capable of 30-plus minutes of flight on a single battery, capturing 150 acres in a single flight; swappable batteries allow coverage over 500 acres. The drone can operate in sustained wind speeds of 25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph and has an onboard LiDAR system to automatically avoid obstacles. The advanced drone system takes off, flies and lands automatically without any human piloting. Onboard computers handle both flight control as well as obstacle avoidance and image processing.
