Description[edit]

Five years after the Helm Memory Core was decoded by the New Avalon Institute of Science on New Avalon, Iroquois Machinery Limited of Shawnee, utilized the technology breakthrough to develop a new design of Harvesting Machine. The Harvester is based on Star League prototype schematics of a new compact IndustrialMech. The new Iroquois machine proved three times faster than conventional harvesting machines. It enjoyed widespread use among the Federated Suns' food producing worlds within ten years of its introduction.[4][5]

The Harvester is noted for its good armor protection and its high-maintenance engine.

During the Liao Insurgency, the Ijori Dè Guāng used Harvesters and other IndustrialMechs to fight the Republic of the Sphere military.[6]

Weapons and Equipment[edit]

The 'Mech is equipped with a 15 ton capacity Lift Hoist on its right arm, which allows it to handle heavy loads. The Hoist is then able to load its cargo onto trailing cargo trucks. A combine takes the place of its left hand actuator. In the center torso, the 'Mech has a half-ton capacity cargo hold.[4]
