HAWK Excavator is one of those companies that is confident going up against the big-name brands for the sake of providing consumers with incredible value and quality at a competitive price. Among the many excavator products that HAWK provides, they also offer Long Reach Upgrade Packages that can be directly bolted onto most of the top-selling excavator brands in the world, including Caterpillar.
Quality you can count on, these Long Reach Packages can extend the reach of any standard excavator by as much as 2X greater in reach. They are ideally suited for 10-ton to 40-ton size excavators and larger, and in particular, CAT 320, 336, and 349 models. The HAWK Long Reach Package comes with a Long Reach Boom, Long Reach Arm/Stick, Bucket and Mounting Pins, and Hydraulic Cylinders for the arm and bucket. Along with this high-quality offering, the entire assembly is pre-plumbed for hydraulics and a slurry hose.
A solution for those hard-to-reach places, this Long Reach Upgrade Package provides greater versatility and reduces operating costs by increasing digging depth and reach by up to 50% compared to a standard boom assembly. As an example, a CAT 336 standard reach is about 38-ft., and the HAWK Long Reach Upgrade Package for this model is roughly 70-ft. Constructed with a premium steel plate, Weldox 700 or equivalent, and robotically welded for consistent high-quality, this upgrade package is designed to provide value beyond your expectations. The HAWK Long Reach Package is a great addition to any standard excavator for deep foundation excavation, industrial demolition, large digging projects, barge unloading, and for any task where a standard boom/stick assembly is not efficient or practical.
Outfitting an Excavator for Dredging Applications
Adding the Long Reach Package to your excavator, and also including a dredge pump with a cutter head affixed to the end of the stick, can further expand the use of your excavator use. The Long Reach and Dredge Pump combo allows an excavator to be used for dredging applications to remove sentiment and debris in rivers, lakes, canals, harbors, and many other types of waterways.
