Yeah, it's had a few upgrades since that model, it's much quicker and more agile than that now. But they do use them in forrestry. The reason being
that they don't have to dig roads through the forrest to get at the trees, they can just climb over it all.
Speaking of robotics, we finally got the new arms installed.
They're pretty freaking fast, not to mention much more powerful than the old scorbots we had.
Bye the way, I was responsible for the destruction of the last scorbot. It collided with another arm that 'should' have been disengaged at the time.
Full speed, maximum torque, big bang, lots of pieces. Fun times.
