The Piranha Mini Dredge was developed in response to thousands of requests received from waterfront property owners. This small dredge for sale 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. The Piranha Mini Dredge 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 small dredges for sale 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 is in the neighborhood of 10-40 cubic yards per hour depending upon: the nature of your sediment, distance pumped, and your energy & skill levels.
