Long Reach Conversion

Your Long Reach Excavator Customization Experts

CW Machine Worx specializes in long reach front design, manufacturing, and conversion services. Long reach fronts offer a safe option for excavators completing river or creek cleaning, pond/silt cleanup, or excavating hard to reach areas.

CW Machine Worx long reach conversions are engineered and manufactured around any size or brand of excavator. Each custom boom or custom stick can be manufactured to your exact specifications. We also create additional custom counterweights which provide more stability to your machine. Long Reach front machines are typically utilized in river or creek cleaning, pond and river bank silt reclamation, and below-grade demolition market segments.
