Forest fire fighting bot

This thing looks seriously badass: A forest fire "clear cut" robot.

Designed by Jordan Guelde and Daniel Shankland II for entertainment purposes (i.e. toys), the bot is designed to clear large areas of foliage from around a forest fire to help stop the flames from spreading. The device is equipped with an array of hubless motors and an integrated fuel system.

Oh, so much sexier than a tank with chainsaw wings!
