As specialist shipbrokers, we have access to a wide range of backhoe, dipper dredgers.
Backhoes, also known as dipper dredgers or mechanical dredgers, are rectangular pontoons and can be self-propelled for positioning on-site or non-self-propelled. They all tend to use a walking spud to move and rely on help from workboats. Small backhoes can be track-mounted and worked from the banks of rivers or ditches.
Bucket or grab size depends on the type of dredge material – from light sand to basalt rock – and the excavator power. Dredged material is loaded into split hopper barges or placed on shore. Backhoe dredgers are fitted with hydraulically-powered buckets.
