Denita, your son is going to have to fight me for it. How lame is that, seeing as I'm a 50-something female?

I believe the wheel (the 'teeth' are buckets) rotates while being moved side to side against the mound of stuff to be excavated.

As the buckets go round the material gets dumped on the conveyer belt inside the arm.
