Mud Cat 40E Remote Controlled Electric Auger Dredge

The Mud Cat 40 Electric auger dredge is remote controlled and is the most popular E-Series dredge used for medium flow projects that are pumping into filter presses, geo-tubes, and centrifuges.  Like the 20E, the 40E is easy to transport and fits in a 40 ft. ocean container.

  • Sphere Passage: 102 mm (4”)
  • Digging Depth – 4.3 m (14′)
  • Total Power – 30 kW (40 HP)
  • Nominal Pump Capacity – 204 m3/hr. @ 15.2m (900 GPM @ 50’ TDH
Remote Controlled Dredge - Mud Cat Model 40E

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 onliner 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

It provides full torque and power at all speeds.

Ladder Mounted Cutterhead

Creates even bottom profile instead of dragging through the material or creating a swiss cheese effect that calls for re-dredging.

Faster Cutting Speed

The 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.

4-Moving Parts

Fewer parts equals ease of operation, reduced cost, and less maintenance.


Available with stainless hull and components, various coatings, low profile design for low bridges, slurry pump options. Special requests are welcome.
