Aquatic Excavator Features

Experience the versatility of the Aquatic Excavator

This machine is built to dig up and take down just about anything you throw at it. With stability and control in mind, the Amphibious Excavator is one of the most versatile options on the market for trenching, digging, and clearing waterways.

This excavator features a barge-mounted backhoe and three adjustable stabilizer legs. The stabilizer wheels provide flotation when extended, and act as stabilizers when positioned under the barge. The excavator also uses its wheels to load itself on and off of a trailer, and to roll itself in and out of the water. No crane is needed for launching, retrieving, or repositioning the excavator.
