DSC Dredge Badger Class dredge

By |  December 1, 2014

The Badger Class 8-in. x 8-in. cutterhead dredge is ideal for smaller dredging jobs where more compact equipment is required due to work area limitations, DSC Dredge LLC says. With a working width of just less than 10 ft. and an overall length of 54 ft., including the ladder, dredging contractors can maneuver the Badger Class dredge into harder-to-reach waterways that aren’t accessible by larger crafts. Yet, the dredge can still dig to a depth of 20 ft. at a 60-degree down angle on the ladder. The lateral cut achieved at maximum depth is about 50 ft., the company adds. The Badger Class dredge is 9 ft., 2 in. tall and can be transported on a single truckload. According to DSC Dredge, the Badger Class dredge is offered in an 8-in. discharge/suction configuration and leverages a three-compartment hull. The unit’s lever room and pump/engine room enclosures are built with 12-gauge plate.
