An earthmover with JCB-like capabilities, that looks like a gigantic Fiddler Crab.

The right "pincer" is the long-reach backhoe. The left is the "shovel".

The machine has a body on the form of a flattened ovoid, and moves on eight hydraulically powered and articulated legs mounted underneath.

       I'm sure a joint approach to JCB can be arranged. +

       That would be wise; they'll never buy the idea unless they've recently consumed a substantial amount of psychotropic chemicals.   

       One of the ergot derivatives would be most appropriate, as they're likely to be seeing gigantic bright yellow mechanical crabs anyway (amongst other things).

       I've seen a photo of something like this. I'll see if I can find it again.
