• Présentation
Similar to our AE600E, the Amphibex 650E gives you even more with its pumping capacity and optimized engine power. Equally easy to transport, this dredger allows you to perform a wide variety of jobs with its range of accessories and equipment. Equipped with twin propeller engines, our AE650E is ideal to perform in all types of environment. Like all dredgers in the Amphibex line, the 650E is designed with a priority ecological awareness, especially with its integrated emission reduction systems and biodegradable oil hydraulic systems.

Flood prevention and ice breaking

The Amphibex AE650E is a world calss ice breaker and is used in many places for flood control. In the majority of cases, the use of the Amphibex AE650E makes it possible to avoid using explosives which can be detrimental to the environment. Several techniques can be used to break ice.

650 - drainage

Drainage work

The Amphibex AE650E is a very effective device for drainage operations. Its mobility on land and water, anchorage and stabilization equipment, added to its wide range of interchangeable accessories (bucket chipper, bucket pump, conventional bucket, rake and side discharge spout) give it a distinct advantage over traditional drainage machinery.

Shore line interventions

The Amphibex AE650E differentiates itself through its shore line work. Able to accomplish a large wide variety of operations (pipe installation, cleaning of the banks or vegetation control), it involves only minor disturbances where the use of traditional general purpose excavators would have created severe damage.

Equipment Equipment

The range of Amphibex AE650E standard equipment includes many interchangeable accessories that provide great versatility found on the amphibious general purpose excavator conceived and manufactured by Normrock. Normrock also offers a multitude of optional accessories. For a complete listing of the standard equipment, consult the technical specifications of the product. For the adaptable options for the Amphibex AE650E that fit your particular needs, contact us.

The cabin

The air-conditioned Amphibex cabin offers all the comfort and visibility necessary for the operation of the amphibious general purpose excavator during long hours. The ergonomic position of the various manipulation arms of the hydraulic controls and GPS navigation system contribute to make the work of the operator comfortable and simple.

In addition, the seat and controllers can move from the left to the right of the cabin to facilitate the visibility and manoeuverability during work near structures.

The C18 Caterpillar engine

Equipped with Caterpillar C18 diesel engine with 765 bhp, the Amphibex AE650E general purpose excavators have all the power necessary and are low emisions.

Stabilizers and floats

Its front stabilizers (with floats) and its four anchor piles (adjustable and tilting) also give the Amphibex AE650E all the mobility necessary to move over ground and to adequately position itself for shoreline or marine work. They also give the amphibious general purpose excavator the necessary balance to operate effectively on all kinds of bodies of water.

Propulsion system

Conceived to have maximum power with minimal disturbance. TheAmphibex AE650E propulsion system has achieved its goals. It can sail at 5 to 8 knots and its shallow propeller protects marine vegetation in shallow bodies of water.

Positioning system

The Amphibex AE650E positioning system can be fitted with very sophisticated GPS technology, particularly useful when pumping contaminated sediments. Day or night, these systems are used to determine precisely where the amphibious excavator should be.
