Rongsheng Zhenyu ZY210SD4 floating excavator video review

Floating excavators, like the Rongsheng Zhenyu ZY210SD4, are common sights across Asia but are much rarer in Australia

The 40-tonne water-going behemoth was one of two floating diggers (the other was a Heking HK150SD) being used on a mine remediation project at Uranga in NSW.

The ZY210SD4 can operate in up to 4 metres of water, making it particularly useful in environmental or forestry applications, thanks to its oversized pontoon tracks. This particular unit had additional outrigger pontoons attached for added stability – very important in the water!

"I would have to classify the Rongsheng Machinery Zhenyu ZY210SD4 as the ‘Big Daddy of Floating Excavators’ as it has performed brilliantly at every turn and completed tasks not seen before," Ron says.
