Amphibious Excavators, Cargo Buggies, Slide Pontoons
Designed and manufactured in the USA. Available for purchase, lease, or lease/purchase.
Specializing in smaller machines up to 13 metric tons, our amphibious excavators are durable, maneuverable, and well balanced. We design them to be easy to transport and operate giving you maximum flexibility leading to reduced transportation and ownership costs.
E35 is the smallest amphibious excavator we build. Lightweight, easy to transport, great for getting into those tight places.
E50 is a workhorse. Small, economical, lightweight but with good horsepower. Strong auxiliary tool circuit with many attachments available. Our most popular model. Under 12’ for easy transportation.
CAT 306 is Caterpillar’s answer to the E50. Slightly larger with a little more horsepower. Another workhorse machine with plenty of power for tough jobs but at a shade under 12' is easy to transport.
When you need more power and lifting capacity than an E50 / CAT 306 and CAT 308 is the next step up.
A significant step up from the CAT 306, the Wilson CAT 308 Amphibious Excavator is a workhorse machine with plenty of power for tough jobs.
This is the machine gives you the maximum capacity with minimum of transportation costs. The Wilson Telescopic CAT 308 has an operating width of 13'10" providing the stability you need to leverage the power and lift capacity of the CAT 308. The tracks hydraulically retract to 11'10" for transportation, significantly reducing the cost and complexity of transportation.

For transportation the track reduces to 11'10".
An extremely strong, high horsepower machine that is built to be under 16’ wide. This is the maximum you can get in lift capacity, reach, and power without the complexity of disassembling to transport into most states.
