Remu’s a splash hit at INTERMAT
Remu's new Big Float 800 is a smaller floating excavator that can work on marshlands and coastlines without fear of getting stuck or sinking.
Finnish company REMU is keen for its Big Float 800 floating excavator to be a splash hit following its launch this week at INTERMAT.
The amphibious machine weighs in at 12,500kg and can be transported even with three-axle trucks. With a boom length of 7.7m and digging depth of 4.1m the Big Float 800, like Remu’s other Big Float models, is completely floating and can be brought to a job site by land using its tracks or towed or driven with propellers along waterways.
The machine’s extra pontoons and anchoring legs enable it to be operated in open water. Propellers can be also added to extra pontoons to ease its travelling on water.
“People have been very interested in the 800 and all our other Big Float machines,” said Remu owner Hanna Rissanen.
“Our business has been growing and we now have 50 people working in our company and an annual turnover of €7million.”
