The Wheelie Digger utilizes shovels and chutes built into the wheels to pick up regolith(wheels are cut to show). As they spin, the scoops pick up the dust and transfer it to the center of the wheel through the chutes. The axle that turns the wheel is a corkscrew, which is surrounded by a shell connected to the main body. There is an opening at the top of the shell, located in the wheel, that lets regolith in. The soil is then corkscrewed to the center of the rover as it drives. The wheels are big enough that it can work upside down. There are doors at the top and bottom to deposit soil. Each of the four wheels’ motors will be kept sealed in containers to keep dust out. It can dig in place by spinning each wheel towards its center. body - 30x30x12, wheel - 18x5
