Specially designed marine grade, extruded 6061-T6 aluminum alloy cleats with 1 UHMW wear pads are capable of supporting the pontoon and its payload.
Power for the pontoon tracks is provided by the excavator’s diesel engine and main hydraulic pumps through a hydraulic swivel. Hydraulic travel motors and brakes are mated to the sealed planetary final drives to provide independent power to each pontoon track. Standard excavator travel controls are used.
Wilco’s specially designed carbody is built to accept up to a 16,000 lb. upper structure, which makes assembly and disassembly faster and easier.
