To empty the soil the box tips up and dumps itself. There is a crane like scoop in the front to scoop up the soil. It has spikes to scoop up the rocks when needed. When the Moon Digger picks up the lunar soil it puts it in the bucket like container on its back. Once full the Moon digger goes back to the station or area to drop off the lunar soil. The power source of the moon digger is solar panels but there is a backup battery if needed. The robot also has cameras in the front to see where it is going and to take pictures for scientists to study.
