dredge will increase cutting force and overall production. Whether to increase production in a sand mining operation or to mine the world’s hardest trona, the Wheel Dragon™ is your solution.

The sectional pontoon type rectangular hull has been sized to meet the requirements for strength and flotation and also provides the versatility that is inherent in transportable equipment. The dredge is designed to be partially field assembled on land and launched with final assembly afloat. Disassembly is accomplished partially afloat and partially on land. The main dredging plant is installed in the center hull pontoon.
