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.
