Pontoon undercarriage

Big Float undercarriage can be hydraulically adjusted which allows the operator to pull the pontoons together when passing narrow gaps and spread them apart to achieve steady positions for operating.

Continuing engineering and improvement - towards stronger structures

Widening beams of Big Float are specially designed for best possible strength. Similar structure is applied in cranes that are designed to carry weight.

Stability  - security

Security of the machines working in most challenging environments should be the most important feature when choosing the machine. Big Float pontoons are long and low which keep the barycenter low and maximize the stability. Our undercarriages and additional pontoons are designed not only for static buoyancy, but  also for optimal stability.

    Track Pads

    Strong and proven chain structure

    The standard excavator chain parts are well available all over the world and the number of wearing parts in standard excavator chain system is far less compared to other chain systems.
    Swamp track pads
    The swamp track pads are used mostly in swamp area. For example, in saltwater areas in Australia. This tracks helps to push away from the ground much more stronger than standard.


    Remu pontoons perfectly fit in a container or in a single truck

    Hydraulically retracting and extending of undercarriage helps to skip wide-load escorts when transporting Remu Big Floats. The maximum transportation width of the Big Float is 3.5 m.
    in a container
    Big Float undercarriages can be packed in containers, which enables shipping all over the world.
