Magical Quarry is a block added by the EssentialCraft III mod. It is used to rapidly dig blocks in large radius.

When placed, it must be supplied with MRU. After that, it will dig a vertical column of blocks below itself from top to bottom. The two blocks straight below Quarry and two bottom blocks of the world remain untouched.

When the vertical column is dug, the Quarry starts digging the same vertical area around itself. By default it digs blocks in 5 block radius, but that can be changed with upgrades. The horizontal layers are dug one by one from top to bottom, much like the Quarry Quarry. However, unlike the Quarry, the items don't automatically go to any inventory and instead drop above the Quarry and must be collected by another device, such as Vacuum Hopper Vacuum Hopper or Vacuum Chest Vacuum Chest. Hopper Hopper is not recommended because of its slow item transfer.

By default, the device breaks blocks with a speed of 0.8 hardness per second (compared to 2 of Wooden Pickaxe Wooden Pickaxe and 8 of Diamond Pickaxe Diamond Pickaxe). However, that can be changed with upgrades.

The complete list of upgrades is provided below.

The MRU balance doesn't change block behaviour. The block has an internal buffer of 5,000 MRU.
