Auto-Miners are robots encountered in Appalachia in 2103.

Background[edit | edit source]

Hornwright Industrial partnered with Atomic Mining Services to produce the Auto-Miner, in an effort to completely automate their mining operations while retaining only executive staff. The resulting loss of jobs led to large scale union action and attacks by Hornwright's previous human workforce against Auto-Miner operated mines and Hornwright-affiliated sites.

In response to the Auto-Miner, and in an attempt to show the benefits of a human workforce, Garrahan Mining funded the development of the excavator power armor and challenged Hornwright in a heavily advertised contest, which Hornwright won.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

Auto-Miners are utility Protectrons with drills for arms; some have Robobrain treads.
