We are the pioneer amphibious excavator (aka
swamp excavator or
floating excavator) manufacturer and premium supplier in Malaysia. Thanks
to our patented ‘multi-synchronous
hydraulic drive system’, a pivotal technology developed by EIK that positions
us at the forefront of amphibious excavator design. The paradigm shift in how
modern amphibious machines are being designed has won the hearts of numerous
customers, both new and experienced users in the industry. We are now the
largest full range (7 models) amphibious excavator manufacturer by volume in
South East Asia with worldwide recognition for our quality and superior
A marsh excavator / marsh
buggy is specifically designed to manoeuvre in marshy, swampy area and soft
terrain, and it can also float on water as an added safety feature. It is
completely self propelled and can virtually access all terrains, and yet
requires minimum supporting transportation and hoisting equipment.
When fitted with our long reach front offers an unparalleled
package with unmatched productivity for your investment. Greater versatility
can be easily attained when used in conjunction with the wide range of
attachments we produce. We have in-house expertise in designing customized
attachments to tackle unique challenges where traditional off- the-shelf
solutions fail to deliver.
With our successful track
records in designing and providing long reach attachment for numerous and
unique dredging applications over the years, our customers can look upon us to
provide a complete package to carry out tasks in challenging terrains with
incredible efficiency and high ROI (Return On Investment).

multi-synchronous direct drive system provides superior tracking
capability, making the machine virtually undeterred in any terrain. A similar concept applies to a full time 4x4 gear system of
a land vehicle. Multiple active drive motors propelling each pontoon
provide at least twice the tracking power and performance capacity
compared to conventional single motor design. Multi-motors also offers the advantage of
redundancy during unforeseen circumstances.
Many users do not realize that not all swampy areas are flat but
undulating, and mud viscosity varies widely from area to area and
country to country. One would fully appreciate the superior design
of multi synchronous motor powered pontoons in the most challenging
optional design feature allows each pontoon to retract
or extend outward hydraulically. A fully retracted
pontoons with reduced footprint provides the added
advantage and convenience of transporting the machine on
trailer without dismantling into modules. A tremendous
saving on logistical cost over time. Fully extended
pontoons provides the extra stability when situation
control is totally independent (non shared) from the
existing hydraulic circuit. We have an upgrade kit where
an auxiliary hydraulic function can be added with full
control from the operator cabin. Click on the video for
Structural grade tensile
plate is used for the fabrication of the pontoons. The goal is
to construct a high strength and durable base structure
without being overly heavy, hampering its efficiency. The
pontoon is designed to be able to float on water as an added
safety feature (click here to watch video).
It has 3 water tight compartments hermetically sealed
with individual manhole for easy access from outside for
inspection and preventive maintenance
excavators work in the harshest conditions you can
imagine. Our ultimate goal is to extend the dependable
service life of the amphibious undercarriage system.
Pontoons are shot blasted to ensure that the surface is
thoroughly clean and free from contaminants and rust. In
addition, this process presents the steel with a surface
texture that provides excellent adhesion of prime coat
Supplementary Pontoons and Spuds:
Supplementary pontoons can be easily attached onto the
outer side of the primary pontoons to enhance stability.
The hydraulic-mechanical spuds system which is control
from the operator cabin is a superb solutions to
overcome buoyancy in deep water, providing additional
stability and enhanced operability on water up to 4
Users can chose to add the supplementary pontoons and
spuds system at the later stage when need arises.
Auxiliary hydraulic lines are preinstalled on all
primary pontoons whereby the user can simply installed without tedious
modification. A truly pulg-and-play system and future
proof in design.
shoes/cleats are steel fabricated and are robotically
welded to utmost precision. Steel is favoured over
aluminium alloy because of its malleable property. Its
malleability makes it less prone to cracking, due to the
wider spread between yield strength and ultimate tensile
track cleat used has a minimum yield strength and
tensile strength of 280 Mpa (40,600 psi) and 480 Mpa
(69,600 psi) respectively, which translates to
approximately 16% and 65% improvement of yield strength
and tensile strength respectively over 6061 T6 aluminium
Customer may opt for
the polymer track shoes instead. 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 aluminium
We have designed a
unique clamping system which is far more reliable than the
direct bolt-secure system. Our engineering team has conducted
extensive exercise and clocked enormous of hours on field
testing, experimenting with various clamping
system. And we finally have a superior solutions that will
stand the test of time.
The polymer track
shoe is fully backward compatible, customers who have invested
in our pontoon undercarriage can be easily upgraded. Simple
and hassle free.
One of the most
critical components of the undercarriage system, it is
entirely in-house design and manufacture, to ensure proper
quality control. One of the criterion of a good design is that the
track chain has to perform reliably under various working
conditions. Special grade steel is used and precisely trimmed
to extremely tight tolerance. We insist that this is the only
way to maintain the quality we demand and there should be no
compromise under any circumstances.
Each roller has an
embedded induction hardened bushing that greatly prolongs the useful working life
of the track chain.
Axle and Sprocket:
unequivocally favoured 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.
hardworking sprockets, rollers and bushings (embedded within
the rollers) are made from hardened steel which helps in
reducing the frequency of replacement and costly downtime.
Rollers travel on a strip of wear resistant steel track,
preventing it from premature wearing to the pontoons.
counterweight can be replaced with a well constructed general
purpose storage and tool box compartment as an option.
Customed design and build to fit snugly at the back of the
excavator. An innovative and welcoming feature.
Standard configuration of
the Amphibious Excavator comes with a long reach attachment unless
otherwise stated. The convenience of an extended reach and greater
working range is always a welcome advantage when carrying out work
in marsh land and dredging related projects.
