Short Description: An excavation and mining vehicle that can quickly mine solid resources such as coal, stone, ores, and quickly harvests any trees in it's path (and can consume the wood to fuel itself). The Miner was designed for use with AAI Programmable Vehicles mod and can act autonomously if programmed correctly.

The Miner is a mobile mining vehicle with a large inventory. It can mine any of the solid ground resources like Iron Ore, Stone, Coal, etc. It it gets close to trees they are town down and the wood is collected. It will also burn the collected wood to keep itself running. The miner will continue to mine even without a driver.
The miner is designed for AAI Programmable Vehicles which can allow a miner to dynamically move to now ore fields.
The miner is slow, so a Hauler is a good companion vehicle to collect the Miner’s resources and drop them off somewhere else.
