Amphibious Excavator

  • Maintenance and cleaning of waterways, lakes, shorelines, ponds, etc.
  • Erosion control and prevention.
  • Deepening of waterways and river deltas.
  • Maintenance and repair of natural environment.
  • Flood protection and flood maintenance works.
  • Landscape building and protection.
  • Accessing difficult strands of water/soft terrain.
  • Swamp and wetland construction.
  • Road building through wetlands.

EIK amphibious excavator has performed well with the following features:

  • Patented multi-synchronous hydraulic motor direct drive system.
  • 2 bulkheads per pontoon, hermetically sealed.
  • Service manholes on each pontoon for easy maintenance and field servicing.
  • Heavy duty track chain system, laser trimmed to extreme precision.
  • Hardened rollers and bushings for extended operation life.
  • Bolt-on sprocket system for perfect track pitch alignment.
  • Modular design for easy transportation.
  • Supplementary pontoons can be added on each side to enhance stability.
  • Spuds for supplementary pontoons overcome buoyancy in deep water, provide additional stability and enhance operability on water up to 4 meters deep.
  • Hydraulic extendable pontoon system offer the flexibility of narrow track width when fully retracted, particularly useful during transportation.

An amphibious 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. Thanks to our patented ‘multi-synchronous direct drive‘ system, a pivotal technology developed by EIK that positions us at the forefront of amphibious excavator design. 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 performance.

SHOT BLASTING

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 of paint.

   

HYDRAULIC EXTENDABLE PONTOONS

An 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 call for.

The hydraulic 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 details.

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 meters deep.

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.

TRACK CHAIN

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. Each roller has an embedded induction hardened bushing that greatly prolongs the useful working life of the track chain.

The high performance amphibious excavator is powered by our patented ‘multi-synchronous hydraulic motor direct drive’ system, the pivotal technology that positions EIK at the forefront of amphibious excavator design.

The undercarriage design offers extremely low ground pressure, making it the only undercarriage system that allows an excavator to work on swamps and soft terrain.

It is also designed to be able to float on water as a safety feature.

  • Patented multi-synchronous drive motor design.
  • Motors are mounted on front and rear of each pontoon.
  • It offers superior tracking power as compared to a single motor design. A similar concept that is applied to a full time 4×4 gear system of a land vehicle.

  • Direct drive system that minimise mechanical loses of power.
  • Swampy areas are not necessary flat, and one will realize its full potential when tracking on uneven and high viscosity and muddy terrains.
  • Motors mounted on front and rear running in synchronous mode provide both push and pull action, offering superior tracking ability.
  • No modification to the main pump or hydraulic system of your existing excavator is required to accommodate the multi-synchronous drive system.
