Dino6

Dino6


The Dino6 is a small dredge machine used to remove accumulated sludges and sediment from a body of water.

The Dino6 Sediment Removal System is uniquely portable dredge. It is the most affordable small diesel dredge in its class. Simple and easy to operate, the Dino6 portable dredge barge boat is more durable than machines weighing and costing twice as much. This small dredge was developed to perform jobs inaccessible to other equipment. Weighing only 3,800 pounds, the Dino6 can access retention ponds, golf courses, sediment lagoons, home association lakes, marinas, and a myriad of other tasks that excavators and large hydraulic dredges simply cannot get to.

  • Dino6: Our Sediment Removal System

    The Dino6 sediment removal system is comprised of a small dredge manufactured domestically. The Dino6 measures just over 22′ long and 6′ wide and is less than 6′ tall. With a wet weight around 3800 pounds, it is a very lightweight portable unit, with a low cost of mobilization, and a small footprint.

  • 1. How deep can the Dino6 work?

    A: The Dino6 can excavate at a thirteen-foot depth in standard configuration, a three-foot boom extension allows for an additional two foot of cutting capability

    2. What is the distance I can pump with the Dino6?

    A: The Dino6 is rated at 1100 gallons per minute at 50 feet of total dynamic head. Which means it can deliver 1100 gallons per minute 50 feet straight up in the air or (based on frictional losses in the pipeline) it can deliver 1100 GPM over 800 feet horizontally. The specific gravity of your sediment can affect the distance you will be able to pump. Velocity in the pipeline is critical to keeping heavy materials in suspension. A booster pump can be used with this system.

    3. Will the Dino6 clear the vegetation off my lagoon?

    A: The Dino6 will struggle with many reedy and fibrous forms of vegetation. It is not a difficulty of the pump to put these items into the pipeline, the problem lies with the cutter-bar rotation. The reedy vegetation wraps around the cutter bar and becomes tightly wound and very difficult to remove. The cutter-bar has teeth to loosen material but no cutting action. Lighter surface grasses and other plants which wrap but are easily removed will just present many more short stoppages for clearance.

    4. What tolerance for trash and debris should I experience?

    A: The submersible pump on the Dino6 can pass debris between baseball and softball size (approx. 3″). The pump and impeller are constructed of ar-400 material that will not be damaged by submerged material including gravel, cobblestones, concrete, tree branches, etc. Materials caught or obstructing the pump are simply removed and operation continues.

    5. How do I run the Travel Cable in open water?

    A. The are many options for open water rigging, including a spud barge, sinking an anchor or multiple anchors, jetting an anchor into the mud. We generally expect that you will be working towards your shoreline anchor (lots of solid pull) and gingerly back up towards your open water anchor (no load).

    6. Do you offer options for a self-propelled Dino?

    A. We realize that there may be few situations where this might be nice, but don’t believe effective pressures can be delivered to the work surface with an outboard efficiently, think of swimming against the side of a pool, you can exert a lot of energy (fuel) but not be putting much force on the wall. The travel cable counters wind, current, pipeline forces and enables certain and accurate tracking of cut paths.

    7. How much pipe fits on the trailer?

    A. The custom trailer available from Geoform will carry 800 feet of pipe plus the pipe components of the floating discharge on the pipe rack.

    8. What is the best way to get the Dino6 into the water? 

    A: The Dino6 can be launched from the trailer on a boat ramp or sloped ground. Also, it is equipped with lifting eyes welded onto the pontoons for crane or boom truck needs.

    9. Booster Pump Compatibility?

    A: One of the three limitations inherent in the use of the Dino6 can be overcome by the use of a properly sized booster pump. Limitations of Pumping distances and extreme elevation changes can be negated with the additional capabilities of a booster pump in the discharge line.

    10. How can I tell what type of material I am pumping?

    A: Prior to starting a project a sample can be taken of the sediment to be removed, its content will tell you many things about the job including how far you will be able to pump the material (based on weight and velocity needed to maintain suspension), what type of flocculant you will need if using a dewatering device, and what the shrink rate will be for calculating the total yardage of dry solids to be moved or contained.

    11. How many cubic yards will the Dino6 move an hour?

    A: 1 CY of in situ material per minute is a good baseline for this system. Repositioning, debris clearing, and other stoppages will result in less production. Soft, soupy, gassy materials will exceed these estimates dramatically.

    12. How much do I charge and/or how do I bill this work?

    A: Please call us to discuss. We are putting together a contractors guide that will help explain the many ways to approach the commercial aspects of this type work and the potential pitfalls.

    1. How do I know when to service my Dino

    A: There are several easy ways to tell what moving parts and wear items need to be repaired or replaced based on a variety of circumstances.  The best way to know how to properly maintain your Dino product is to call or email us so we can talk you through what services should be performed and why.

    2. Do you sell pre-owned Dinos?

    A: Yes.  Occasionally we have pre-owned Dinos for sale.  When available we can also assist in locating Dinos for sale around the country.

Northeast Pond Restoration Services has dredged over fifty ponds, ranging in size from 10,000 square feet, to five acres. In 2007 we purchased a Dino6 from Geoform International. We immediately pumped over 3,000 cubic yards of sand from a pond for a local town. Since then we have removed sand, mud, and invasive vegetation from a wide array of ponds with great success.
