Rhino Robots are still in production. They have several new models including the XR-4 and many accessories. They can also provide upgrades to existing XR robot arms, and parts. Unfortunately they can not help with the original XR-1 robot arm or the mobile Scorpion robot. Their contact information is below:

Below is a picture of some of their early robots which are no longer in production. These are shown mainly for historical reasons. I have an original XR-1 arm which still needs restoration work. Instead of the single controller it has a controller that is spread across two of the normal control boxes. I am in need of the manual for this early Rhino arm and hopefully can get it going again if I can obtain a copy of it. I also have an assembled Scorpion robot and most of a Scorpion kit. Unfortunately I lack the documentation and software for the Scorpion robot. If you have anything for it please let me know.
