The two screws are appropriately motorized and thanks to their differentiated drive allow changes in direction for trips over water (no rudder).
In addition to moving well on solid land, the LEM moves easily also on muddy land or swampy areas where there is not necessarily enough water for floating.
The raft can be set up with different operating machinery according to the intervention to effect, first of all the arm excavator with bucket.
It is clear as its features and its versatility make the LEM particularly suitable for interventions such as canals and irrigation ditches cleaning and their banks in all those situations where the normal wheels or tracked means are not usable.
As amphibious vehicle can be very useful in the context of civil protection interventions. Manoeuvring controls are easily accessible from driving seat which is set in the middle of the raft.
