Notes: A commercial construction Labor designed for use in construction projects in mountainous regions.  The Labor is also waterproof and can walk in water. Also if a leg is damaged or lost, it is possible operate the Labor on three legs. The Labor also has retractable wheels for driving on roads. This Labor was used in an unsuccessful attempt to capture a genetically modified creature in the TV episode "Head to the Evil Mountain". In various reference books, this Labor has been romainsed as "Crabman" and "Crubman", but I have used the most plausible and arguably the most correct name of Clubman.
