The Cotswold Canals Trust Dredger ‘Augustus Gloop’ was craned into the canal near Hope Mills at Brimscombe in December 2014 and immediately started some silt removal trials.
The vintage German built machine has been part of the CCT maintenance fleet since it was purchased back in the 1970s.
It has undergone a number of refits and upgrades over the years. Most recently it has been fitted with new flotation tanks, a diesel fired cabin heater, renewed hydraulic pipes & pump and hydraulic legs.
