  • allcons Hinge Bucket-chain Trimmer / Series EL6000
    for precise and high-volume excavation of canal shapes for reducing concrete losses, up to 360m3/hr excavation, faster
    and more precise, compared with off-the-shelf excavators.
  • allcons Hinge Concrete Liner / Series PC6000
    for continuous lining of canal and river beds, up to 180m3/hr concrete with standard feeding system, much higher production rates on request available.
  • allcons Hinge Working Bridge / Series BC6400
    mobile working platform with equipment for finishing and curing the concrete, including a diesel-electric generator for decentralized power supply.

All machines can be used independently of each other. The best results, with a minimum of concrete, can be achieved by using the set of all three machines.



  • allcons Combination Machine / Series EC6000
    A bucket chain trimmer and a hinge liner combined to just one machine with the ability to excavate and to pave simultaneously

Applications for Hinge Machines

allcons Hinge Construction Machines are very versatile. The machine frames are divided into sections,
so they can be adapted to varying canal section shapes according to desire. Many configurations are possible:

Full Section
Full section trimmers or liners can handle canals with up to 25m top width.


Half Section
Larger canals can be built by using the half section configuration. This enables the handling of up to 30m slope length in one pass.


Extended Half Section
For longer (stepless) slopes, one of the running gears can drive within the slope, so 60m can be achived.


Seperated by Berms
For even larger canal slopes or embankment dams, it may be necessary to split the slope into more sections, separated by berms, so it is possible to produce slopes with any length.


Flat Terrain
The Hinge Construction Machines can also be used in flat terrain, so there is no need for conventional machines for trimming and lining the canal floor.
