C485-D pushboat

The Conver C485-D is a stable, robust barge boat that is very suitable for pushing and pulling hopper barges. The small size of the C485-D makes it the ideal barge boat for carrying out various types of dredging work. Even dredging in shallow or narrow waterways is no problem for this compact C485-D. The C485-D is equipped with a Stage V engine and therefore complies with the latest emission requirements and regulations.

This powerful barge is made with 4 mm steel, and the hull corners are equipped with extra wear strips. For an optimal view of the work, the C485-D is equipped with a standing cabin.

The C485-D barge provides two neatly concealed steel cables with tension cylinders for attaching the hopper barges. At the back of the barge, a collision guard is mounted around the auger to prevent damage.

The Conver barge is equipped with the correct certification for inland waterway transport. The C485-D is also suitable for linking a pontoon for maintenance work and/or small transport over water.
