When I was a sarge in the 13th batallion of Alpine troups we had mules to do that... they worked well and they were a lot cheaper. Not to mention the occasional kick in the butt of officers that makes us laugh more.

I was watching this the other day. These used to be called Big Dog and Alpha Dog, I think.

This new one is a lot better. It can follow voice commands and is a lot quieter. The old one sounded like a very old lawn mower with the blade chewing up gravel.
