Amphibious Lightweight Design

The idea of Lightweight Design was developed by our construction team’s over 20 years of experience in all kind of dredging projects, which means the pontoon buoyancy is less than the total machine weight (the upper structure and undercarriage of the excavator). By doing so, the amphibious excavator can work in shallow water stably and achieve better flexibility under 1.8 meters water environment (depending on the model of amphibious excavator).

  • The excavator can land and maneuver stably in shallow water. All digging operations in different directions are as safe as land crawlers working on the ground without the risk of rolling over;
  • With a lightweight design pontoon, customers enjoy a more compact appearance, easier ma
