The Piranha Mini dredge was developed in response to thousands of requests received from
waterfront property owners.  Decades of runoff and vegetation decay has robbed the storage
capacity of lakes, ponds, and canals throughout the United States.  The Mini dredge is a
compact, highly portable, gasoline engine powered sediment removal pumping system, designed
to provide the homeowner and contractors with the ability to excavate and transfer unwanted
sediment. It is an efficient alternative to machinery such as: back hoes, excavators, and drag
lines. These methods of mechanical excavation are expensive, have limited reach, are destructive
to the shore, and typically deposit the material adjacent to the shore only to wash back in with
the first good rain.

Our dredges are particularly effective in removing sand, silt, and that fluffy black stinky mud that has
ruined your ability to enjoy your waterfront. It is not possible for a dredge in this price range to
excavate thousands of cubic yards of  material in a short period of time. The excavation capability of
these units are in the neighborhood of 10-40 cubic yards per hour depending upon: the nature of
your sediment, distance pumped, and your energy & skill levels. To give you a point of reference, a
pile of sand the size of a Ford F250 pickup truck would be about 20 cubic yards. That generally
represents the size of a hole that you can make in an hour. If you are cleaning a modest area for
example; around a dock or boat slip, you can expect to get the job done relatively quickly. On the
other hand, if you have a large surface area to cover, say 1 to 2 acres, you are going to be whittling
away at it for awhile.  Using our pickup truck example again, if you dredge for 4 hours every other
weekend for 6 months, you would be able to park a fleet of 50 trucks in the hole that you created.
The intent here is to provide you with the means to diminish your sediment problem  with a quality,
yet affordable piece of equipment. You are also going to have to be prepared to deal with the fact
that you will be pumping a lot of water along with the sediment. The mud is not going to come out of
your discharge hose looking like toothpaste. Even expensive industrial dredges can’t do that.  On
the other hand, this unit will provide you with the means to renew  the quality of your waterfront, and
the quantity of removed sediment will be limited only by the amount of time & energy that you put in
to it.
