This robot features an ax or hammer type weapon. The weapon is operated by the drive motor applying force to the tires. The motor(s) torque causes the robot body and weapon to rotate in the opposite direction with great velocity. These type of robots are hard to disable because they can run upside down.Superheavyweights325 lbs wheeled. 488 lbs walking.Scott LaValley operates and maintains this monster tank type robot.Doall (La Ma Motors)

Another colorful member of the Doall gang.
Doall features a powerful pneumatic ram weapon which can be raised and lowered for optimum target selection. The robot also has a lifting ramp weapon facing rearward.

Mjollnir (Kampfgruppe V)Carlo Bertocchini (Team BioHazard) It's sorta been a running joke that Carlo builds such strong and reliable robots that he never brings any tools to an event. Well this time I caught him grinding the lock of of his toolbox. He said he left the keys in his car and it was too far to walk to get them. Boy I'll tell you what. If I had to fight in the heavyweight class I'd open my toolbox too.
The robot uses Hoosier pneumatic tires on aluminum rims. I believe they are from Legend racing cars.

Kill-o-amp (Operation Boilermaker)
Defiantly a kinetic energy type robot. This machines weapon is to crash into its opponents at a high rate of speed.
These are the large Optima batteries that power the 1000 amp current draw that the motors require.

Jerome Miles built this pusher type robot out of Lexan and bravely fought it in the heavyweight class.Knome II (Team Duct Tape)
This robot had a lot of personality. I think the audience really liked watching it in battle.

Knome II has 4 drive motors but its still a little light duty for the heavyweight class.
