The dredge prolly works better than it looks so give the guy a break. At least they're moving forward, nobody else seemed to come up with a reasonable method of fufilling the contract.

Pretty sure a few people with knowledge of these jobs gave quite a few different ideas on how to attack the situation...

I will give them some credit. That little dredge will do just fine! It will be slow but I would guess it's a 6" pump with a short pumping distance. He could get anywhere from 50 to 80 yards an hour depending on the material. Just my experiences

Well, the man that seems to have everyone's respect (including mine) didn't have much input. Most everyone got sidetracked with the pics and website issues.

Desperate jobs sometimes require innovative and desperate means to complete.

If the dredge can move say 2,000 yards in 40 hrs (as bargeman stated 50-80 cyds ph) this mistake will soon be history and man, what a lesson. Regardless, I wish him luck.

Yeah... that looks suspect for a near $50k price tag.

I was serious about selling the job to move >2k yards of material 1k feet with compact equipment and still pocketing money with your $50k budget.

Videos of this needed! I just can't see that little thing being able to move all that dirt that is at a higher grade then the water level and will be hard and dense. I could see it working for making a canal deeper that is full of water and he's pumping light silt from the button but I thing what felt soft and wet for your rented excavator will feel rock hard and go impossibly slow for this toy. We shall see. I hope you have a contract because I think he's going to jump ship a few hours into this one.

Once they get moving I will get some videos, they started today went 10' broke a line, had to eat lunch up an time to go home. I don't know how they make any money they do a lot of standing around.

We have a contract in place and all the necessary precautions if he dose jump ship.

Should be starting our Frac Pits Monday as soon as I have pics will post going to have a D6 and 330 working on them along with a blade for finishing's and rock truck for the hauling

Well, you know how some guys are starting out on a Friday. I wish you the best of luck in getting this job completed with your head above water.
