MBI’s extensive offering of amphibious excavators is second to none. From the smallest project to the largest, we have a solution for you!
In all of our present models, the excavator has been removed from its conventional undercarriage and mounted onto a turntable ring located between the pontoons. The turntable ring is connected by mating the two flange/separation plates on the turntable to the flange/separation plates on the main cross beams.
The planetary and motor assembly is located inside the pontoons, allowing it to be protected from the elements, thus extending motor life and wear and tear on parts. The planetary motor assembly is easily accessed via a manhole cover, either on the inside of the pontoon walls or via a hatch cover on top.
