Ellicott Dredges, the leading portable dredge equipment manufacturer with over 130 years of experience recently finished building a Series 370 HP “Dragon®” dredge for a customer in West Africa. The customer is using the small 250mm cutterhead dredge for sand mining purposes.
The customer trust our team to build their dredge for 3 three simple reasons. 1. As a leading dredging company, we have a reputation for making durable dredges that are built to last. 2. The 370 HP is a small dredge that is simple to operate and easy to maintain even for the first- time dredge owner. 3. Finally, this 370 “Dragon” Dredge is vintage dredge that possesses a maximum digging depth of 50 ft. (15.2 m)
A local team of trained Ellicott Dredges technicians where on site to help assemble the “Dragon®” dredge. The technicians also offered instructional dredge training. The training is designed to help the customer’s crew learn to operate and care for the dredge in a remote tropical environment.
