REMU Pumps Up Next-Generation Amphibious Excavator Product Line
Ähtäri, FINLAND – REMU, the Finnish company that makes the finest earthmoving products, today announced that the Big Float E15, designed for 10-15-ton excavators, will ship in May, extending the number of Big Float models in its E-Series to three.
“REMU’s Big Float E-Series amphibious excavators provide so much additional strength, productivity potential, and efficiency than the offerings from other manufacturers today that REMU has really set the bar higher for the entire industry, and changed dramatically what customers can reasonably expect from equipment in the toughest conditions, said Pavel Syrtsov, Business Development Manager.

The E-Series models’ reliability, quality, and easy serviceability are increasingly making it the equipment of choice for some of the world’s biggest wetland construction contractor. Working long hours in ultra-challenging shoreline and swamp conditions, contractors demand ultra-reliability as well as quick, efficient transport that keeps productivity at peak by saving time, money, and man hours. Among Big Float’s most unique and notable features and available options are:
- Extensible Undercarriage. REMU’s E-Series amphibious excavators are all equipped with a pontoon undercarriage that can be hydraulically adjusted, which offers two tremendous benefits. First, optimal stability in both narrow channels and waterways as well as deep water. Second, truly vast savings in time, money, and man-hours during transport. Since Big Float pontoons can quickly be adjust to as narrow a width as 3.0 meters, depending on model, when competitors’ equipment only narrows to a space almost twice that size, Big Float models can fit on a single truck for transport, and don’t have to be either disassembled before transport or reassembled afterward. One New York-based contractor claimed this feature alone saved him $100,000 on a job. A Big Float undercarriage mounted with a CAT320 upper carriage narrow to just 11.5 feet in width; REMU’s various competitors offer equipment that mounted with a CAT320 narrows to just between 16 to 20 feet wide — taking up as much as almost twice the space, which makes transport more difficult.
- Customizable. Customers can choose to mount any excavator brand on top of the Big Float pontoons or undercarriage. Big Float E-Series undercarriages can be also equipped with wide range of additional equipment custom-designed for special situations, including side pontoons that allow Big Float to operate entirely in deep water.
- Performs Flawlessly in the Toughest Environments. REMU designed Big Float to provide rock-solid stability and reliability in even the most challenging set of circumstances. REMU uses today’s industry-standard chain structure which has not only been proven over decades to provide the strongest way to move crawler track, but also means that if needed standard parts are available all over the world from multiple sources in hours or just minutes.
