Mud Cat MFD to Maintain Multiple Lakes in the Northeast US

Ellicott Dredge Technologies (EDT) has announced the successful launch of a Mud Cat MFD at Griffin & Howe’s Echo Lake in the Catskills region of New York.

John Wunderluch of Freshwater selected the Mud Cat MFD because of its ability to work as a hydraulic dredge with the MC-Cutter Pump and a mechanical dredge with the MC-Backhoe Bucket, MC-Clamshell, and MC-Trash/Weed Rake and its self-launching capability, said Ellicott in its release.

“The MFD’s durability and performance has exceeded our expectations. The versatile design allows us to remove stumps, rocks, and sediment from our lake. It was important for us to select a dredge made in the USA by an American manufacturer with a great reputation like Mud Cat,” said Wunderluch.

The dredge will clean and maintain several private lakes on various Griffin & Howe properties and eventually move on to local environmental projects in the Northeast. The Mud Cat MFD will initially clean out and maintain several lakes in New York and New Jersey.

Freshwater Dredging and Wetlands Restoration selected the Mud Cat MFD due to the combination of rocky soils and branches in their lakes, which is commonplace in the rugged Northeast wilderness.

Griffin & Howe’s MFD is outfitted with the following attachments: MC-Cutter Pump, MC-Clamshell Bucket, MC-Backhoe Bucket, and MC-Bucket Thumb for picking up boulders and logs.
