After the great success of the 8-inch (203mm) discharge Mud Cat MC 115D dredging system, Ellicott Dredge Technologies LLC recently announced the launch of the new 2021 Model MC 115D Dredge.
The new stand-out features on the MC 115D are the standard climate-controlled operator’s cabin and optional hydraulic-tilt Transport – Launch – Retrieve Trailer (TLR Trailer).
The new 2021 design has already been purchased by Merrell Bros, a national biosolids management firm, and the City of Peoria, Illinois Parks.
“At first glance it looks like a basic auger dredge, but when you look at the spec you realize the dredge has incredible versatility and is loaded with unique features,” said Ryan Horton, EDT Vice President. “Standard features like the climate-controlled cab, patented Pump Defender® for up to 80% less downtime, rapid clean-out ports on the cutter and pump, quick disconnect hydraulics for cutter changes, and a slurry density sample line are some of the value-added standard features the design team packed into the MC 115D dredge system.”
“Then you have an arsenal of options like the WeedMaster® Cutterhead, Broadcaster spray discharge attachment, outboard propulsion system, radio remote control, and flow and density meters for monitoring pump performance,” added Horton.
Additionally, the MC 115D comes standard with both the EnviroMaster™ cutterbar, for dredging thick sludges and lighter materials, and the SolidsMaster™ cutterbar, for dredging sand and more compact materials.
The MC 115D is a small dredge contractor’s dream machine that is ideal for cleaning small and large ponds in the industrial, wastewater, stormwater, mining, and recreational sectors. There are more than 1,000 Mud Cat brand dredges operating around the world.
