EM-240 Neides auger
From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
The EM-240 Neides auger, also known as the Neides heavy auger or simply the Neides, is a gargantuan and towering heavy-duty, durable, mining machine manufactured by JOTUN Heavy Industries. Heavily automated. It is said to offer nearly unsurpassed productivity to colonial resource-extraction operations.
Using the latest in solid-state laser technologies, the Neides excels at yielding higher drilling efficiencies and reducing the risk for operational errors. Its unique tripodal system allows good stability and even some limited mobility, although it is a relatively cumbersome machine. Several of these were used by the Liang-Dortmund Corporation on Meridian.
