Excavator Manipulator Arm
The Excavator Manipulator Arm (EMA) enables vehicles to dig, demolish, remove obstacles and fill trenches to create a clear route for following operations.
The system comprises a boom, arm and bucket and a stabilising dozer blade. It is a self-contained Pearson Engineering product which includes its own Engine, Batteries and Fuel System.
Made of high tensile low carbon steel which makes the product robust and strong yet low weight, the system can also be used for light dozing and obstacle reduction tasks. During transport, the EMA stows tightly against the hull of the host vehicle while the blade is raised to protect the equipment and to ensure that the centre of gravity is retained close to the vehicle structure.
The EMA can be fitted using a common interface kit which allows the task equipment to be quickly and easily interchanged and jettisoned increasing the operational capability of the host vehicle.
