Remu adds third undercarriage to amphibious excavator product line

Remu big float

Remu is now offering a third option to convert excavators into amphibious machines.

The Finnish company is introducing the Big Float E15, designed for 10 to 15 ton excavators. The Big Float E15 joins the E22 and E10 in the Remu E-Series product line.

“Remu’s Big Float E-Series amphibious excavators provide so much additional strength, productivity potential and efficiency,” said Pavel Syrtsov, the company’s business development manager.

“Remu has really set the bar higher for the entire industry, and changed dramatically what customers can reasonably expect from equipment in the toughest conditions.”

All E-Series models — the E22, E10, and E15 — are built with a highly customizable structure, and are easy to transport to, from and between jobsites.

Remu’s E-Series amphibious excavators are all equipped with a pontoon undercarriage that can be hydraulically adjusted, which offers two benefits.

First, optimal stability in both narrow channels and waterways as well as deep water. Second, the company says the undercarriage saves time, money and man-hours during transport.

As Big Float pontoons can quickly be adjusted to as narrow a width as 3 metres, the machines can fit on a single truck for transport, and don’t have to be either disassembled before transport or reassembled afterward.

For example, a Big Float undercarriage mounted with a Caterpillar 320 upper carriage narrows to 3.5 metre in width.

Customers are able to mount any excavator brand on top of the Remu Big Float pontoons or undercarriage.

Big Float E-Series undercarriages can be also equipped with wide range of additional equipment custom-designed for special situations, including side pontoons that allow Big Float to operate entirely in deep water.

Remu uses the industry-standard chain structure which has not only been proven over decades to provide the strongest way to move crawler track, but also means that standard parts are available all over the world from multiple sources in hours or just minutes.
