Comments from Dealer
This area of waterway is a vital source for the community and surrounding farmlands. For years, the residence had to walk up to 6 miles to get clean, usable water. Productive agricultural areas became useless, dried wastelands. MA200 is changing all of this. With a floating capacity of 29.0m3, swing speed of 13.3min-1(rpm), and maximum digging depth of 6500mm, we knew MA200 could revitalize and rejuvenate this area. MA200’s low ground pressure and exclusive use hydraulic system makes this incredibly engineered machine capable of handling any job set in wet, soft terrain. Each float is constructed with 3 wall petitions for a failsafe design. MA200 is the 5th and most advanced version of the marsh amphibious models since it first appeared in 1975 with MA100U.
