At DSC Dredge, we know designing and building the exact custom dredge that will boost your efficiency and lower your costs involves working with you and learning your story. The SHARKUDA® Class wide format swinging ladder dredge is designed to excel in areas otherwise difficult to access. Starting with our base model, we customize the SHARKUDA® for your specific application, learning all details of your project, and involving you every step of the way.

 The SHARKUDA® Class dredge features a swinging ladder design specifically patented for wide deep swings. Available with diesel or electric power, the SHARKUDA® can reach dredging depths down to 43 feet (13.1 m). Standard discharge sizes range from 12 inches (300 mm) to 18 inches (450 mm). Ideal dredging applications include aggregate mining, lake management, river dredging, contract dredging, environmental clean-up and coastal restoration. With a patented spud glider system, the SHARKUDA® operates more efficiently than any other conventional dredge on the market.
