What is a Swamp Buggy?

Swamp Buggies are amphibious vehicles specifically designed to crisscross over swampy, boggy terrain.

They are part of the Personnel Carriers/Specialty Buggies line we manufacture to the highest standards at our facility in Lafayette, Louisiana. These buggies are fabricated to move on dry land, through shallow mud, sand, shallow water, and some times through deeper mud. Additionally, they possess the capability to: self- propel through or over deep mud and water; traverse through or over moderately dense vegetation; move over rough terrain, possibly including logs and stumps; and float on water and over mud. Our amphibious hydraulic undercarriage buoys our vehicles to take them past where the road ends.

We also have the capability to mount excavators onto our Swamp Buggies, which broadens the capabilities of the Buggies. At Wilco Manufacturing, we fabricate our equipment to withstand extreme weather conditions, unforgiving terrain, and the corrosive effects of saltwater. We engineer the most ample and stable undercarriages, built from the most durable and reliable components available. Each undercarriage is custom-designed for each piece of amphibious hydraulic equipment to provide the highest degree of stability and balance. The specifications of the excavator and the weight required to be transported designates which amphibious undercarriage is employed to supply the lowest ground pressure, the most outstanding turning and climbing capabilities, and the highest possible degree of buoyancy.

We pride ourselves on producing the highest quality, most reliable amphibious equipment. With our 50 plus years of combined experience, rest assured when you receive your order, it will exceed your expectations.
