Booklet about Amphibious Excavators

of 0
An amphibious excavator is specifically
Designed to manoeuvre in marshes,
Swampy area and soft terrain with the
Ability to float on water as an added
Safety feature. Thanks to the patented
Multi-synchronous hydraulic motor
direct drive system, the pivotal
Technology that positions us at the
forefront of amphibious excavator
design. The paradigm shift in how
modern amphibious machine is being
designed has won over the heart of
numerous customers, both new and
experienced amphibious excavator users
in the industry.
The amphibious excavator is completely
Self-propelled, it can access virtually any
soft terrains where standard excavator
fear most.
Standard excavator sunken into swamp
Such machine has proven itself over and
over again and has performed
Exceedingly well in the followings
applications:
Dredging
Landscaping
Erosion control and prevention
Deepening of waterways and river
deltas
Maintenance and cleaning of rivers,
lakes, shorelines, ponds, etc
In the 2013 flood prevention initiative of
Indonesia, amphibious excavator has
Been the star performer of this high
profile project in which the machine
played a pivoting role in cleaning and
clearing of garbage clogged the Jakarta
city reservoir and water canals.
Similar machines have also helped the
Water Development Board of Bangladesh
in dredging, deepening and ongoing
maintenance of the country’s main water
channel.

Final Drive System
A break through in final drive design, the patented multi-synchronous direct drivehydraulic motor on
each pontoon. Multiple active motors propelling each pontoon provide superior tracking power, making
it virtually undeterred in any terrain. Many users do not realize that swampy areas are not necessary all
flat. Mud viscosity varies widely from area to area and country to country. One would fully appreciate the
superior design of our multi- synchronous motor powered pontoon system when faced with the most
challenging terrains.
Another key advantage is its higher ground
speed. We have conducted field tests, and it has
been proven that when tracking in high viscosity
muddy ground, a higher travelling speed and
momentum, when coupled with front and back
synchronized motor tracking, can drastically
reduce the risk of being stuck and immobilized.
Multi-motors design also offers the advantage of
redundancy during unforeseen circumstances.
Hydraulic Extendable Pontoons
The pontoon undercarriage system is designed to be able to float on water as an added safety feature. It
has 3 watertight compartments, hermetically sealed with individual manholes for easy access from the
outside for inspection and preventive maintenance.
An innovative design in the undercarriage system allows each pontoon to extend outwardly via hydraulic
function, providing the extra stability whenever the situation calls for. This is also an welcoming feature
where pontoons can be retracted to its narrow position during land transportation.
Operator would be pleased to know that all these
control functions can be executed comfortably
with ease from the cabin. Undercarriages designed
for 14 ton class and below excavators will have a
hydraulic control system for extending and
retracting the pontoons as a standard feature.
Pontoons are designed with provision for future addition of supplementary pontoons and spud system if
needs arises. A future proof for your investment.
Optional Items:
Supplementary pontoons can be added on each side to boost stability in deeper water operation.
Spuds attached to supplementary pontoons help to overcome buoyancy effect, and enhanced operability.

Track Chain
Each pontoon comes with 2 or 3 strands (model
dependent) of heavy duty track chains, constructed with
high strength steel. Track shoes/cleats supported by
multiple strands of track chains provide the advantage of
uniform pulling force and superior weight distribution
across each track shoe/cleat.
Track chain is one of the most critical components of the
undercarriage system, it is entirely in-house design and
manufacture, to ensure proper quality control. The
criterion of a good design is that it has to perform reliably
under various working conditions.
The track chain is laser trimmed to extremely tight
tolerance. We insist that this is the only way to maintain
the quality consistency we demand, and there should be
no compromise under any circumstances.
Axle and Sprocket
We unequivocally favored a non-weld-on sprocket design. Sprockets are precisely machined and bolted
onto the axial. This concept ensures a perfect alignment of each sprocket across the axial, a critical
criterion for the longevity of the track chain.
The hardworking sprockets, rollers and bushings (embedded within the rollers) are machine finished to
high precision and subsequently hardened. This reduces the need for frequent replacement and costly
maintenance down time. Rollers are travelling on a strip of wear resistant steel, preventing them from
prematurely wearing down to the pontoons.
Track Shoe/Cleat
The track shoes/cleats are steel fabricated and are
robotically welded to utmost precision. Steel is favored
over aluminum alloy because of its malleable property. Its
malleability makes it less prone to cracking.
Customer may opt for the polymer track shoes. The grade
of polymer we have selected is extremely tough and yet
appropriately flexible for its application. It can better
retain its shape and is less susceptible to deformation than
ferrous based or aluminum alloy. Polymer is also lighter
than steel and aluminum.
Best of all, polymer track shoe comes with 24-month or
2,400-hour warranty whichever comes first.
Long Reach Boom and Attachments
One of the key strength is front attachment design. We have wide range of attachments to suit various
Application needs, bucket, clamshell, grapple and etc. The amphibious excavator is most ideal with a long
reach boom. The convenience of an extended reach and greater working range is always a welcomed
advantage when carrying out work in marsh land and for dredging related applications.

Installation
Ease of Transportation and Installation
The modular system was designed with ease of transportation and installation with minimum field
equipment and manpower in mind, yet without compromising speed and safety. A trained 4-man team
can fully assembled a complete 20 ton class machine in under 3 hours, only assisted by a crane.
Post Sales Service and Support
We are a vertically integrated organization and take pride in our fully in-house design and manufacturing
capability. Most parts and components are manufactured in-house, thus considerably reducing the risk of
components becoming unavailable in years to come. Spare parts are well-stocked and can be delivered at
a short notice. The availability of spare parts is guaranteed for at least 10 years.
