• Anchor booms
• Swing anchors
• Suction relief valve
• Jib crane over pump
• Production Meter System
• Portable fire and bilge pump

• Two separate engines that operate independently to drive the pump and hydraulic system. This allows full hydraulic power to the cutter and winches even when RPMs are reduced on the pump—something single engines cannot do.
• The hydraulic system was designed with a focus on efficiency, resulting in lower fuel consumption and higher dredging systems performance.
