Boring Revolution indicates that the Boring Company Prufrock tunneling machine should start digging test tunnels in 2021.
Boring Company had announced in Feb 2020 that they had built Prufrock. They have been working on getting the machine to achieve its performance goals.

Boring Company started with a commercial machine from another supplier. It was called Godot and it was their first-generation tunneling machine. The Boring Company came up with Line Storm, a modified version of a conventional boring machine that is about twice as fast. The first major goal is to make tunneling 10X faster with Prufrock.
There will be further iterations of the tunneling machines.
