IMS Versi-Dredge 7012

The Model 7012 HP Versi-Dredge is ideal for rivers, lakes, beach projects, port projects, and production sand mining. Like all Versi-Dredge systems the Starwheel Drive system allows the dredge to be completely self-propelled. The 7012 HP is the “flag ship” of the IMS product line. The 425 horse power unit utilizes its 10” x 12” GIW pump directly behind the ultra aggressive Excavator Cutterhead equipped with replaceable, hardened sharks teeth and excavator teeth. The ladder mounted submerged pump achieves a higher percentage of solids than hull mounted pumps which results in greater output. The HP (High Pressure) pump on the 7012 HP is a GIW 10” x 12” cast iron, hi-chrome sand pump that can pump sand to a maximum distance of between 4,000’-4,500’ depending on specific gravity of the material. The 7012 HP is the only one truck transportable self-propelled dredge in the world that can dig down to a standard depth of 30’ without having to be disassembled for road transport. The 7012 HP can dig deeper and pump a higher percentage of solids than any of other dredge in its class.
