Gunnlöð the Future Heavy Equipment

The inimitable Izzo makes the future of backhoes downright sexy with his Gunnlöð the Future Heavy Equipment. This behemoth construction multiped looks right at home, digging the footings of our future cities. Pay particular attention to the wonderful mechanical greebling that makes the Gunnlöð feel so real. If you’re wondering what a Gunnlöð is, I looked it up. While Izzo states that Gunnlöð is the Norse God of War, as best as I can figure out, she is the daughter of the giant Suttungr who guarded the sacred mead of poetry. But heck, what’s in a name. Call it by any other name, this is one sexy backhoe.
