Amphibious Machine has been appreciated around the world since the first machine was exported in 2003. This Amphibious Machine combined with an extensive range of accessories has made Amphibex unique in the market. With a wide range of easy to fit tools, Amphibex can cut and collect aquatic weed and reed growth, dredge, excavate, clean up oil spills and much more. The amphibious nature of Amphibex combined with low ground pressure allow it to operate in sensitive areas without damageto the environment.
Amhibex is the ideal choice when working on wildlife reserves, golf courses and other sensitive areas normally inaccessible to conventional machines. Being able to simply travel from land to water is a great asset in wetland conservation man-agement. Amphibex’s sensitive joystick steering gives the operator perfect control in narrow channels and near obstacles.
The Amphibious Machine can easily turns on its own axis. From full speed forward Amphibex will stop in less than half a metre.
The AM bracket on the machines lifting arm allows the operator to change tools quickly and easily. One person can easily handle the machine. Amphibious Machine is designed to ‘walk’ on and off a road trailer making transportation very cost effective.
Operating in any depth of water, uniquely from zero to unlimited depth, boats facilitate
- Weed cutting (to a depth of approx 2.2m)
- Reed cutting on banks and at water depths of up to 2m
- Bank cutting and reforming
- Excavation and minor dredging works, and
- Floating weed harvesting.
The Amphibious Machine, specially designed for the maintenance and restoration of harbours, marinas, canals, waterways, marshes, ponds, embankments, flooded land, etc.
Easy-to-connect equipment facilitates a rapid installation of the appropriate tool kit, turning the machine into a dredger, mower, harvester or excavator in minutes.
It is fully multi-functional allowing Harbour Clean to exploit the machine’s potential to the full.
This Amphibious Machine can be used for various operations:
- Mowing & Harvesting
- Oil-spill clean up
- Marine site maintenance
It can be operated both on land as in water. Amphibious Machine is very manoeuvrable and is capable of rotating on its axis in the water. It is therefore ideal for use in inaccessible marsh areas and shallow water.
Due to its light weight (1.2 tonnes) distributed over two broad tracks, it is suitable for sensitive areas such as parks, cultivated gardens and golf courses. The minimal ground pressure of the Amphibious Machine directs virtually no damage to the substrate during operation.
Depending on the type of work, the relevant tools are attached to the lift arm or, if appropriate, directly coupled to the vessel’s hydraulics.
Amphibious Machine is equipped with
- Different cutters for mowing
- Rakes for cleaning / collecting the cut material
- Skimmer for oil spill or blue algae
- Dredging Pump for dredging
- Excavation unit with different buckets for dredging, bank restoration, material handling, etc.
We offer two Amphibex models, each with different engines, hydraulic systems and accessories. Amphibex AM 4700 has a hydrostatic hydraulic system. Amphibex AM 5000 has a load sensitive system that delivers more power to demanding tools like pumps, miller and mulcher.
