The Rotomite 6000 is Crisafulli's full feature dredge.
Great visibility. The Operator has a clear view of dredging operations from the forward positioned cab with large windows on all four sides. The cab with A/C and heat is accessible from either side of the dredge for improved convenience, productivity, and safety.
The operator can articulate (demonstrated in this video) the cutterhead to keep the cutting teeth at right angles to the face of the dredged material. Coupled with the hydraulically powered ladder, which uses the dredges weight, our dredge can break up settled solids, and dig down if required.
The hydraulic thruster on the Rotomite 6000 generates 1,000 lbs of thrust, which allows the dredge to handle most applications. For tougher material, the Rotomite 6000 has a cable traverse system, which genreates 4,000 lbs of thrust, using a tenth of the horse power.
Dredge Rentals Many domestic and Canadian customers rent Crisafulli’s Rotomite and FLUMP dredges on short-term leases, and, after becoming familiar with the productive capabilities of the dredges, buy them.
