The new Amphibious Marsh Buggy from LongReachHighReach (LRHR) boasts features such as two hydraulic motors on each set of tracks, expandable pontoons and a unique design allowing easy breakdown and reassembly in a matter of hours.
 
The model is specifically designed to maneuver and go through swampy areas with soft underfoot terrain where traditional excavators cannot operate.
 
LRHR's Amphib MB is extremely productive in dredging, erosion control and erosion prevention. It also provides efficiency in waterway, river and pond shoreline construction and can be used for maintenance and clearing of rivers, lakes and other water projects.
 
The two hydraulic motors on each set of tracks provides the equivalent of four-wheel drive. The track chain is a three rail system.  Shoes and cleats are supported by the track chain which provides a unifying pulling force with a superior weight to drive ratio across each track shoe and cleat.
 
A manual expansion system allows the pontoons to move in and out by one-foot on each side increasing and reducing the overall footprint of the marsh buggy. 
 
Uniquely designed for easy breakdown and reassembly in a matter of hours, the Amphib MB and 20-ton excavator top can be shipped economically in three containers for contractors doing jobs in remote and distant areas.
