An amphibious excavator is specifically designed to maneuvers in marshy, swampy and soft terrain. It can also float on water like a boat and work on rivers, ponds and lakes. Thus ideal for swap land clearing, river deepening, pond desilting, etc.
Amphibious excavator is specially designed with :
1. super long boom for maximum reach.
2. floatables pontoons with isolated water-tight compartments sealed with individual service manhole.
3. optional extendable pontoons to allow each pontoon to retract or extend outward hydraulically.
Nevertheless, its components are commonly available off the shelf from most excavator manufactures, i.e. Carterpillar, Hitachi, Komatsu, Kobelco, Mitsubishi etc.
