MTBM Increase Kits - Akkerman

Equipment

Akkerman Inc.

All Akkerman MTBMs can be factory configured with an increase kit to expand their excavation diameter and further your investment’s versatility. Sometimes called skinning or upsizing, the process involves bolting a custom‐manufactured, fitted steel cylinder onto the exterior of the MTBM to enhance the range of diameters where the machine can be utilized.

Please discuss your project needs with our knowledgeable sales staff to determine your MTBM’s increase kit’s diameter and capacity requirements.

Testimonials

Our interaction with Akkerman began on a project where we were struggling with their competition’s machine. Changing machines during a project to their machine required a leap of faith on our part. That project completed 20 years ago turned out to be successful and propelled us into 20 years of completing scores of successful micro tunnel projects throughout North America. Providing many innovations throughout this time has allowed us to mine many geology types and increase drive distances with curves to over 2500 lf. I can attest 30 years ago, technology did not exist that today allows us to complete projects efficiently and at a lower cost. Their leadership in providing technically superior AMERICAN made equipment is second to none in the world today.
