The Excavator 'Martian Invasion'
The Excavator is International Rescue’s specialised digging machine. Equipped with a horizontally rotating and adjustable burrowing device situated directly at the front of the vehicle, the Excavator can be used to clear large volumes of debris from disaster sites. With rows of tough and fast-rotating teeth, or flails, it can quickly and efficiently mine directly into rock or stone such as a rocky hill, rubble or cliff face. The rotating motion of the teeth combined with a scoop situated directly behind it effectively catches and feeds the rock debris further into the machine where it is crushed into a finer material and ejected out of two funnels at the rear.
Scott Tracy himself refers to the machine as ‘the drilling and crushing excavator’ and as with other International Rescue vehicles it is tracked to give it better traction on rough terrain. Housed within Pod 5 and transported to the front line by Thunderbird 2, the Excavator is piloted by Virgil Tracy and appears in ‘Martian Invasion’, where it is used to rescue two men trapped in a flooding cave.
