MarsCorp Excavation team (part WIP)
This is a series of vehicles frequently found at MarsCorp excavation sites. **Part of this build is a Work-in-Progress, it may be removed from the MOC and re-added later.** There are three vehicles and one structure as of now, subject to addition
About this creation
This first vehicle is, as you may have figured, is an excavator. The top portion is based off that of the 2005 set, digger. It has an attatch point for a hook in the front that can be swapped with the bucket to give it a dozer blade.


Here you can see the airtight cab open and the back cargo area opened. It also shows the assortment of tools on the other side.


This is the same trailer as seen in the MarsCorp Heavy duty Work Truck.


Here is the drill atatchment. this brings it to a nice set of three, a hook block, wide scoop shovel, and self-grinding drill (it grinds up all the rubble in the hole for you).


This is the shovel-dump drone it is based off the small shoveler in a power miners base. It carries many tools and is a staple at any large-scale excavation. It too can carry the grinder drill.


This dumping action turned out rather nicely. It raises its arm and tips back the bucket and fills itself.


Then the whole assembly leans back and empties.


This is a ramdrill. It revvs up its drill and then slams it into the ground on electromagnetic force rails, boring out a hole much faster than most other drills.


The drill rig lays back to push into walls or to rest. You can also see the leveler blade on the rear.


This is a grinder tower. Turn the knob to spin the blades. The trailer seen on the excavator can park under the tower.


The blades are linked by this gear mesh. YES, I can greeble well in LDD with gears and other technic parts. This part is the WIP. I plan on adding a ramp for vehicles to drive up and dump. right now, only the excavator can get up there with its freakishly long arm.

Quoting JWG 258 thats an ingenious little drone.
It is very simalar to the one form the power miners underground base but I did have to make some nessesary modifications to the boom arm and the chassis to make it work right.
