This DMI Model HPC-16LP-80 PowerMasterDredge was built in 1988. Purchased by current owner in May of 2011 and it was put into service in early June of the same year. The dredge was shipped on 9 truck loads (4 of which were oversized). Prior to assembly, the entire hull and all of the above water structure was painted. New bolts were used throughout the assembly process and several hydraulic hoses were replaced.
The CAT 3306 and CAT 3152 engines were given full evaluations by CAT service technicians and adjusted as necessary. The entire wet end of the dredge, including the pump shell, impeller and liner were replaced as well as adding new teeth to the cutterhead. In addition, a new hydraulic motor was installed on the ladder winch as well as replacement of all winch cables.
The Dredge remained in service for approximately 2.5 months until the owner's existing dredge was repaired, after which it was taken out of service.
This portable dredge features:
Submerged ladder mounted dredge pump
Highly efficient mechanical dredge pump drive
Control cabin with: - Air conditioning and heating - Tinted plexiglass windows - 360 degrees visibility - Airbag mounting to reduce vibration and noise levels
