Nicknamed “thunderers”these beasts are a common and awe-inspiring sight both inside and outside the hives.

Macro Haulers are made in many different variants but all can be fit into one of two major categories: The Intra Hauler which service the major traffic routes (arteries) inside the hives and Inter Hauler (depicted here)- which service the routes between the hives.
