POWERED EXCAVATOR PONTOON
We have a range of specialist excavator, crane and operating platform pontoons.
These pontoons are capable of transporting excavators up to 8 tonnes to awkward access sites, where the machine can either be tracked off the pontoon to work or it can operate from the pontoon itself, with the stability legs down. The machine can be tracked up and down the pontoon to work with no danger of the boat capsizing.
We have both narrow beam and wide beam digger and crane pontoons to suit all canals and inland waterways. They are fitted with a small hydraulic power pack which operates the four stability legs creating an extremely stable working platform. The shallow draught of the pontoons also make them ideal to work in shallow waters, but the stabiliser legs can enable working in water up to 3 m.
The pontoons are modular which pin together and weigh c. 6 tonnes with each module weighing no more than 1.6 tonnes giving a unit which is easy to transport and assemble via a Hiab lorry.
The pontoons are highly adaptable, with side stability sponsons which swing round to enable them to fit through narrow bridges and locks. The crane pontoons are able to transport and lift lock gates, making them ideally suited to lock replacement works as well as piling etc.
