The remote controlled Mud Cat 50E electric auger dredge increases productivity and dredging depth allowing for greater versatility with a marginal increase in price over the popular 40E. Like the 20E and 40E, the 50E is one truck transportable and fits into a 40’ ocean container with the cutterhead removed.
- Sphere Passage: 76 mm (3”)
- Digging Depth – 5.2m (17’)
- Total Power – 37.3 kW (50 HP)
- Nominal Pump Capacity – 272 m3/hr. @ 18.3m (1,200 GPM @ 60’ TDH)
Features & Benefits
Cast Iron Pump
Volute and impeller have a longer lifespan than fabricated steel pumps.
Larger Sphere Passage
Less clogging than fabricated steel pumps on competitors’ dredges.
Electric Submersible Pump
Requires less maintenance on seals and bearings than pumps powered by long drive shafts.
4-Wheel Liner Protection System
Uses 4 wheels instead of 2, drastically reducing the chance of costly poly lagoon liner damage. The pump will never hit or drag on liner like hanging pump units.
Heavy Duty 10 Gauge Steel Hull
Insures long lifespan, durability, and will not crack like plastic/poly floats, which have inherent issues with UV exposure.
Hydraulic Driven Traverse System
Provides full torque and power at all speeds.
Ladder Mounted Cutterhead
Creates even bottom profile instead of dragging through material or creating a swiss cheese effect that calls for re-dredging.
Faster Cutting Speed
System moves at double the speed of other auger remote controlled dredges increasing productivity.
Radio Remote Sense
A hand-held transmitter may be operated up to over 1,000 ft. away. Operating functions indicated by dredge mounted 5-color light tree.
Automated Remote Control Dredging
Mud Cat is the world leader for dredge automation and can integrate a series of functions into a NEMA 4 or 4x control panel.
Less parts equals ease of operation, reduced cost, and less maintenance.
