Earlier this year, Ellicott Dredges, a Baltimore, Md (USA) dredge manufacturer delivered a dredge to an aggregate customer. The Series 370HP Dragon® dredge is capable of digging up to 50 ft. (15.2 m). Also, the small dredge will be used to reclaim sand that is sold to various construction entities. The customer selected the Ellicott 10-inch (250 mm) hydraulic pipeline dredge for three simple reasons:
1. Ellicott’s strong reputation for designing and building durable, long-lasting dredges
2. The simple dredges design makes it very easy to operate and maintain making life easier for the first-time dredge owner
3. This versatile dredge has a lower start-up cost— the capacity to move in shallow and deeper digging deposits
During a visit, to the customers’ site, A trained dredge technician from Ellicott Dredge’s assisted in commissioning the 370 HP “Dragon” dredge. Subsequently, the technician also provided instructional operations and maintenance dredge training during the commissioning period.
