Ellicott maintains a large inventory of replacement dredge parts at our manufacturing facilities for shipment anywhere in the world. Contact our parts department at +1 410 545 0239 or parts@dredge.com.

How long does it take to build a dredge?

Our standard cutterhead dredges are generally available from stock, subject prior to sale. If stock is not available, normal completion would be 3 to 4 months after receipt of order. Delivery on larger equipment varies depending on manufacturing workload at times of order.

Can Ellicott visit our plant or project site?

A regional sales manager is available to meet you at your site or our office, whichever is appropriate. 

Why are there no "lemon laws" to protect a dredge buyer?

“Let the buyer” beware is not just a saying, but the truth when purchasing or leasing a dredge. There is no protection, and the purchaser must rely on the dredging manufacturer. Ellicott has built over 2,200 dredges over our companies 130-year history, and we will never sacrifice quality for price. Some of our dredges are still in service around the world after 50 years of operation.
