Default the swamp thing!!!!

take a look at this beast I just tripped over

Built in the early 2000s the 'Swamp Thing' was the manufacture of Paul Wever Construction Equipment, Illinois, the prototype had 10 large rollers for wetlands, built for a logging company in Georgia.
The 'Swamp Thing' weighs 90 ton on hard ground, 45 t maximum on water and can be radio controlled
