Ammco 16in (406mm) Swinging Ladder Dredge
This is a completely remanufactured AMMCO dredge. Originally manufactured as a conventional 10-inch machine, it has been re-manufactured as a 16-inch swinging-ladder dredge. Most of the components are either brand new, zero-hour re-manufactured, or very lightly used.
The oversize side pontoons, swinging-ladder assembly, cutter assembly, and control cabin are all brand new. The center hull section was extended by five feet, and a new traveling spud assembly was added to the stern.
