DSC Dredge is about to release a brand-new 18-inch Shark Class Dredge that will be available in April 2016.
The Shark is a popular conventional cutter suction dredge from DSC, ideal for sand and gravel producers and construction contractors. Its rugged design offers the full features of larger dredges in an exceptionally portable design.
The Shark features a PLC-based operating system, electro-proportional hydraulic circuits, high-capacity service water system and an inline direct marine-style transmission for dredge pump reduction.
An ergonomic, user-friendly control panel makes the unit very simple to operate. The computer on the Caterpillar engine interacts with the dredge PLC computer controls, resulting in fuel savings, less wear and tear on the dredge and a more efficient operation.
The Shark also features power up/down spud systems with API-rated winch drums for proper cable storage.
