Applications

Our marsh equipment is essential to your wetland, marsh, or swamp project. Its low ground-pressure design means that it can safely work in soft, unstable, or flooded terrain; terrain that is too obstructed for boats and barges, and too soft for conventional equipment.

This unique capability, combined with the array of machines available from Marsh Excavators through Cargo Buggies, and Slide Pontoons, allows our equipment to perform heavy work in places you can't even stand. Our machines are used in a huge range of applications including Dredging, Environmental Remediation, Levee Construction, Oil Exploration, and many more.

ApplicationIntroduction
Disaster Recovery

Hurricanes are a natural phenomenon that creates havoc in most coastal regions. Our equipment is a vital part in rescue efforts such as restoring power, providing assistance in flood protection, and clean-up operations.

Dredging

Some waterways are too shallow or inaccessible for conventional marine equipment and cannot be reached by dredging. Our amphibious equipment can do these shallow water operations. Our equipment also works well with large hydraulic suction dredges that pump silt from the floor of a waterway.

Environmental Remediation

Oil spills, and chemical releases often find their way into our waterways. Environmental pollution and contamination often often sensitive low-lying areas. Marsh Equipment is essential to the task of cleaning up contaminated sediment, building levies to contain spills, or removing pollutants from boggy areas inaccessible to other equipment.

Forestry

Our equipment can be used in the construction of right of ways in marsh and swamp forests. These right of way areas are needed for harvesting lumber and fighting forest fires.

Highway Construction

This work consists of clearing marsh and swamp land of trees and stumps. If debris were left and covered up, it would decay and weaken the new highway.

Levee Construction

Our equipment can access marsh and swamp land to erect hurricane protection levees. These levees are vital in the protection of cities in low-lying areas.

Oil Exploration

Oil exploration consists of bringing seismic equipment and men into the marsh and swamps for testing and searching for oil.

Phone & Cable Lines

Fiber Optic cables are buried in the same manner as pipelines. This work consists of clearing a right a way through swamp and marsh lands, digging a trench for pipeline to be buried, pulling the line into position and then recovering the lines. Many cabling companies are required to bury their lines for safety purposes.

Pipeline Work

This work consists of clearing a right a way through swamp and marsh lands, digging a trench for the pipeline to be buried in, pulling the line into position and then recovering the line. Most oil companies are required to bury their lines for safety purposes.
