There is a video from DeFranco's Training of just such a combination on Youtube:
I've yet to experience that layer of hell personally, but it's exactly what you are describing. No reason that sandbags wouldn't work too.
I'm generally opposed to puking from workouts, but yeah, the Prowler seems to be an especially fast - and sneaky - way of finding out your limit. You're doing fine and then suddenly, you're not fine anymore. If that's all it did it would be BS, but it's a fantastic conditioning tool IMO. Technically simple, scalable, and it doesn't require a lot of trips to get a training effect. I love it for that reason. Just load it, run it, and you're done. It's just a matter of digging in and gutting it out when it gets hard, you don't need to worry about form breakdown. If your form breaks down, it just stops moving. Or runs into a pothole and just sits there.
