You’ve come to the correct site if you’re looking for the highest quality amphibious excavator that is specifically made to move across soft terrain, such as marshy, swampy locations, and it also has the added safety benefit of floating on water. We are happy to let you know that EIK is the sole ᴍᴀɴufacturer of amphibious excavators (also known as swamp buggies or floating excavators) for the international market that Caterpillar, Volvo, Doosan, and Hyundai have certified. Multiple active drive motors can propel each pontoon using our proprietary multi-synchronous direct drive technology, which offers at least twice the tracking power and perforᴍᴀɴce capacity compared to conventional single motor design.
An excavator that is equipped with sealed pontoons and can perform dredging while afloat in shallow water is known as an amphibious excavator. High tensile steel was used to build the pontoons, which are corrosion- and seawater-resistant. This guarantees that the excavator can function even under the most difficult circumstances. These excavators use a hydraulic direct drive track technology to propel themselves entirely.
Undercarriages for amphibious excavators and dredges are some of the more recent developments in the field of industrial machinery. These excavators can work in challenging wetlands found all throughout the world, but particularly in North America and Europe. In the past, engineers would have to devise ways to build roads or bring in barges through canals to establish a solid base for these machines. Engineers created the amphibious undercarriage to cut down on the overhead costs associated with wetland industrial pump applications. Excavators and other heavy equipment can be adapted with the amphibious undercarriage, giving them buoyancy and enabling them to operate in damp situations without the need for additional building.
For transferring people and equipment to job sites securely over terrain that is too soft for walking on and too dense for floating, amphibious equipment adaptations are perfect. Prior to operating heavy equipment in swamps and marshes, employees on these industrial projects had to construct platforms, roads, or canals. This technique was not only time-consuming, but also expensive and might have harmed the surrounding ecosystem. On soft or damp ground, however, these roads and canals were required to carry weights of heavy machinery. By bringing the equipment directly to the jobsite, amphibious excavators can help remove a number of procedures.
