The Conver C585 has been developed for the maintenance of ditches, canals and ponds, independent of the water depth. In floating state the boat is driven by two hydraulic anti-coiling augers. In situations where there is insufficient water to float or on land, the C585 can move with the help of two 450 mm wide rubber tracks. The machine can drive itself out of the water on slopes up to 35 °. The Conver C585 amphibious machine comes standard with a 75-horsepower Hatz diesel engine. All functions of the machine are hydraulically driven. A 2-part hydraulic mast is mounted on the foredeck, for which a series of implements is available. This makes the C585 suitable for mowing banks, mowing waterways, cutting soil vegetation, (water) plants and clearing up plant debris and floating dirt. The standard F-mast is suitable for mowing and spacious work. A heavier C902 mast is available for dredging work.
