The Eddy Pump Excavator Attachment is ideal for pumping fly ash or coal ash from waterways, ash pits, lined ponds or other bodies of water.
By attaching the Eddy Pump to a standard boom or long boom excavator you can get reach of up to 75-ft and handle the most difficult applications. The Eddy Pump allows you to pump the fly ash at distances over 2-miles at production rates of up to 600 tons of ash per hour or 5000 GPM.
Optional upgrade, add liner-safe rollers, it also gives you the ability to dredge on concrete lined sumps or poly-lined reservoirs.
