Testimonials

  • Just wanted to say thank you again, your 300 SL Dragon is a very high-quality machine! Many dredges especially “old swinging ladder dredges” pump water while the operator is setting up for the next cut, but not this one. We were able to turn the pump off, with the flick of a switch, set up, then send the treatment plant heavy solids! We had zero downtime due to the dredge.

  • We are also most impressed with Brutus [our 460S dredge], it is truly a sight to behold sitting in the shop, and, the quality workmanship, pride and attention to detail demonstrates the commitment on those involved…Customer service and attention to details such as this are why…the Ohio Department of Natural Resources is proud of our longstanding relationship with Ellicott Dredges.

  • Since 1990, myself and my mechanic have contacted the customer service and parts division on many occasions and all Ellicott® personnel have treated us with respect and integrity. The “Rudee Inlet II” dredge has served the City of Virginia Beach very well since 1987 and still remains in excellent condition to this day.
