KING OF SMALL DREDGERS
AMPHIBEX – AE400
The AE400 is the compact model of our range of Amphibex excavators and dredgers. Surprising and extremely versatile, this small dredger is ideal to complete a variety of works on the shores and underwater. The AE400 is easily transportable and excels at performing tasks in restrained areas, but its size does not affect its power.
AE400 IN SIZE
With a total length of 10.85 meters, the AE400 is still the smallest dredger of the Amphibex fleet. It totals a working weight of approximately 22 metric tons, making it easy to transport.
The AE400 is a small dredger with relatively impressive pumping capacity. Perfect for a variety of projects, it pumps up to 4250 gallons per minute.
Although it is a small dredger, the AE400 offers an excavation and working depth of up to 6 meters, with an axis of rotation of 170 degrees.
Conceived to have maximum power with minimal disturbance, the Amphibex AE400 propulsion system has achieved its goals. This model can sail at 5 to 8 knots and is set above the water and its shallow propeller protects marine vegetation and avoids moving the sediment layers deposited at the bottom of the bodies of water, particularly in pond dredging operations.
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 positioning of the various manipulation arms of the hydraulic controls and the GPS navigation system contribute to make the work of the operator comfortable and simple.
STABILIZERS AND FLOATS
Its front stabilizers (with floats) and rear (adjustable and tilting) also give the Amphibex AE400 all the mobility necessary to move over ground and to adequately manoeuvre for work on the shore line or on water. They also give the amphibious general purpose excavator the necessary balance to operate effectively on all kinds of bodies of water.
THE C9 ACERT CATERPILLAR ENGINE
Equipped with Acert C9 Caterpillar engine, the Amphibex AE400 general purpose excavators have all the power necessary to be successful. These engines are compact, light and are low emisions.
The Amphibex AE400 uses its powerful and precise hydraulic arm to perform through tasks with ease. Equipped with one of our specially designed accessories, it allows you to complete just about anything you need to do, with a 6,5 meters maximum depth reach.
The Amphibex AE400 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.
