Cutter Suction Dredger

OrangePit’s Cutter Suction Dredgers rely on both the cutting capacity of the cutter head and the suction capacity of our dredging pump to dredge up the material and pump it to a reclamation site, hopper barge or side-cast location. Gathering production can be improved by adding water jets.

Cutter Suction Dredgers can dredge in more cohesive material like clays, compacted sands, compacted gravel, and highly weathered rock. They can also be used to achieve a final required depth more accurately. Cutter Suction Dredgers are used for sand-winning purposes and for deepening or cleaning up canals, ponds, lakes, and rivers. For deep suction applications, our dredgers can be equipped with our submersible pumps. Our dredger range can be powered electrically, hydraulically, by diesel fuel, or a combination of these.

We supply a range of Cutter Suction Dredgers from 10” to 24.”
