Carding Mill Valley happily welcomed McConnel to demonstrate the powers of their Remote Controlled, Unmanned Tractor. They very helpfully cut down some gorse, saving the National Trust two days of group manual labour....... thanks a lot. Due to the design and structure of the machine it is able to go on steep slopes that a manned tractor would not be able to drive on. Not only this but a manned tractor would never really go accross a slope but up and down, that all changes with Robopower.
McConnel spent a day at the valley using the time to show what Robopower could do for a reporter and take pictures. The weather wasn't ideal what with the fog and rain showers but we made it work and had a successful day.
