High-strength, Low Alloy, Weathering steel plate is used in the fabrication of the pontoons. Each pontoon has 4 bulkheads, providing 5independent, watertight compartments. The bottoms of the pontoons are reinforced for rough terrain operations.
The Babin Companies custom designed flanged center carbody makes assembly and disassembly faster and easier.
Specially designed marine grade 3 inch wide extruded aluminum alloy cleats with 2 HDMP wear pads are capable of supporting the pontoons and excavator upper.
Three strands of specially designed, heavy duty, 5 inch pitch marsh buggy track chain are installed on each pontoon. The hardened track chain rollers run in pontoon channels lined with an abrasive resistant wear bar. The drive and idler sprockets are flame hardened to match the hardness of the track chain rollers.
Power for these pontoon tracks is provide by the Cat 324D excavator upper’s diesel engine and main hydraulic pumps through a Cat hydraulic swivel. Cat travel motor/brake combinations are mated to the sealed planetary final drives to provide independent power to each pontoon track. Standard excavator travel controls are used. Again we put the excavator of your choice on top.
