Coming Soon! The Dino8!
The Dino8 dredge is a sediment removal system designed with the small footprint we are known for, and the incredible pumping capacity we always deliver. It all starts with a set of compartmentalized stainless steel floats, that we manufacture in house and pressure check prior to utilizing.
We have chosen a JCB engine to power the Dino8, for performance, reliability, and global support. The power plant turns hydraulic pumps to deliver horsepower to all of the hydraulic circuits as needed. Those circuits include the cutterhead, pump, windlass, and winches. It’s that simple, right?
Our cutterheads are manufactured with readily serviceable wear parts. The cutterhead shroud includes porting for water-jetting. The pump is one of our own 8″ submersible hydraulic units designed to work efficiently in a wide variety of materials including sand and cobble. The unit travels back and forth along a 3/8″ cable drive system (windlass pulley drive) allowing an enormous amount of energy to be brought to bear on the work surface and also countering the effect of current, wind, and pipeline pulls. Steady, trackable progress across the job, moving cubic yards per minute.
How many yards can this move?
A: Baseline at 2CY of insitu material per minute.
How does this differ from the Dino6?
A: The Dino8 has twice the capacity for volume “or” pumping distance of the Dino6.
What is the draft of the Dino8?
A: 18″ for operational needs.
Is there an option for non-cable operation?
A: Not at this time. We are firm believers in the fact that the exceptional levels of production that we achieve are directly related to the amount of pressure we can exert into the workface by way of our he cable rigging.
What are the options for launching the unit?
A: The machine can be floated directly off our trailer, or hoisted.
How do I move this around on the water?
A: a small John boat or tender is enough to position our Dino8 on the job site.
What sized jobs can the Dino8 work on?
A: The Dino8 is the best dredge for medium-sized jobs. While its smaller size allows for easy use, this powerhouse dredge can tackle almost any task.
