The Excavator Arm provides an Armoured Engineer Vehicle with a
powerful excavating, grabbing and lifting capability.
The Excavator Arm is permanently fitted to the hull and offset on a
sturdy slewing ring. It is operated from the vehicle hydraulics.
The Excavator Arm is equipped with a 1.00 cu m (35.3 cu ft) bucket and
an object pick-up thumb for grabbing and lifting. The thumb is a
permanent feature, stowing neatly along the outer jib (the stick).
An optional boom-mounted earth auger is 0.70m (28) in diameter and is
capable of boring 2.00m (77) deep holes.
