WHO

EXODUS MACHINES LLC

The Exodus Machines is a manufacturer of heavy material handlers in Superior WI. Work with Exodus started in the companies infancy with their first product, the MX447.

 

Design objectives were to create a stand out product through breakthrough technology and expressive design.

 

Exodus was primarily familiar with metal cutting bending and welding manufacturing techniques. With the introduction of molded material in low impact area's they were able to achieve a expressive styling and

WHY

No Compromises

This design was the first to exploit the flexibility of composite materials and modern manufacturing techniques. More that purely aesthetic, the body of the MX447 features a unique flow through airflow design where air enters in front and exit through a hollow counter weight exhaust. While striking in appearance, this feature also prevents the engine from ingesting dust kicked up by the exhaust turbulence.

 

The use of composite materials also allowed bay door light enough to open gull wing style for best in class access for maintenance.
