Mini Dredges

Mini Dredge Models: PS-75-AJ, PS-135-E, PS-165-E, PS-165-EP and PS-165-ER
For Removing Sand, Mud, Silt From: Boat Docks, Lakes, Canals, Ponds, Waterfront Property & Beach Restoration

The Piranha Mini dredge was developed in response to thousands of requests received from waterfront property owners. Decades of runoff and vegetation decay has robbed the storage capacity of lakes, ponds, and canals throughout the United States.  

The Mini dredge is a compact, highly portable, gasoline engine powered sediment removal pumping system, designed to provide the homeowner and contractors with the ability to excavate and transfer unwanted sediment. It is an efficient alternative to machinery such as: back hoes, excavators, and drag lines. These methods of mechanical excavation are expensive, have limited reach, are destructive to the shore, and typically deposit the material adjacent to the shore only to wash back in with the first good rain.

Our dredges are particularly effective in removing sand, silt, and that fluffy black stinky mud that has ruined your ability to enjoy your waterfront. It is not possible for a dredge in this price range to excavate thousands of cubic meters of material in a short period of time.

The excavation capability of these units are in the neighborhood of 10-30 cubic meters per hour depending upon: the nature of your sediment, distance pumped, and your energy & skill levels.

To give you a point of reference, a pile of sand the size of a Ford F250 pickup truck would be about 15 cubic meters. That generally represents the size of a hole that you can make in an hour. If you are cleaning a modest area for example; around a dock or boat slip, you can expect to get the job done relatively quickly. On the other hand, if you have a large surface area to cover, say 1 hectare, you are going to be whittling away at it for awhile.

Using our pickup truck example again, if you dredge for 4 hours every other weekend for 6 months, you would be able to park a fleet of 50 trucks in the hole that you created. The intent here is to provide you with the means to diminish your sediment problem with a quality, yet affordable piece of equipment. You are also going to have to be prepared to deal with the fact that you will be pumping a lot of water along with the sediment. The mud is not going to come out of your discharge hose looking like toothpaste. Even expensive industrial dredges can’t do that.  On the other hand, this unit will provide you with the means to renew  the quality of your waterfront, and the quantity of removed sediment will be limited only by the amount of time & energy that you put in to it.
