All EDDY Pump suction dredges and excavator cutterheads are powered by our field-proven, USA Built, industrial slurry pumps.

The core of this design is the patented EDDY Pump technology. The design redefines the pumping industry by being the only pump that utilizes the principles of a tornado to create a synchronized eddy current. This pump is not a centrifugal, positive displacement or vortex pump, but instead the most efficient high solids and high specific gravity pump on the market. This translates to the ability to pump higher percent solids of material with less water.

Why EDDY Pumps are Better

Excavator Pump Attachment

The Best Non-Clog and High Solids Industrial Pump on the Market. Since 1984.

Best Applications: If you are pumping high solids, slurry, extremely viscous material, high abrasives (sand & gravel) and material filled with solids then you found the ideal pump for your job.

Industries Most Served: Mining, Oil and Fracking, Waste Water, Paper/Pulp, Chemical, Energy, Water Districts, Irrigation Districts and Dredging Companies. 

Liner Safe Excavator Dredge Pump Attachment long boom
EDDY Pump is working with several providers to offer swamp buggies and long reach dredge boom options that are pre-plumbed for use with our Excavator Dredge Pump Attachments.

Dredge Attachment and Long Boom Dredger Package

Long Boom Dredge systems to extend your reach. The benefits of this system are reduced setup time because the boom is pre-plumbed for the discharge hoses, saving custom modification time for the client. This is a plug and pump system that attaches to your excavator and gets your project started sooner VS doing your own hose plumbing. Plus, the long boom greatly extends your production capacity.

Amphibious Excavator “Swamp Buggy” Conversion

Additionally, the excavator can become converted to an amphibious undercarriage for use in marshy areas. With a long reach boom this system is unmatched in productivity.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an excavator dredge pump attachment?

An excavator dredge pump attachment is a specialized accessory that can be mounted on an excavator to transform it into a powerful dredging machine. It is used to pump slurry, sand, gravel, and other materials from water bodies such as rivers, lakes, ponds, and harbors.

How does an excavator dredge pump attachment work?

The attachment connects to the hydraulic system of the excavator. When activated, the pump creates a vacuum that sucks up the material from the water body. The material is then transported through a discharge pipeline to a designated area.

What are the advantages of using an excavator dredge pump attachment?

Some advantages include versatility (can be used in various environments), cost-effectiveness (compared to traditional dredging equipment), mobility (easy to move and set up), and efficiency (can handle a wide range of materials).

Can the excavator dredge pump attachment handle large debris?

Many excavator dredge pump attachments are designed to handle large debris, such as rocks and logs. However, the size of debris that can be handled depends on the attachment’s specifications.

How do I choose the right excavator dredge pump attachment for my project?

Consider factors such as the type of material to be dredged, the depth and size of the area, the hydraulic capacity of your excavator, and the discharge distance required. Consulting with the manufacturer or a specialist can help you select the most suitable attachment.

How do I maintain an excavator dredge pump attachment?

Regular maintenance includes checking and cleaning the pump, inspecting hoses and connections for wear and tear, and ensuring the hydraulic system is in good condition. Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for specific maintenance procedures.

Can the attachment be used in saltwater environments?

Many excavator dredge pump attachments are designed to operate in freshwater and saltwater environments. However, it is important to choose a model with corrosion-resistant materials and coatings.

What safety precautions should be taken when using an excavator dredge pump attachment?

Safety precautions include ensuring that the attachment is properly installed and secured, operating the excavator and pump according to the manufacturer’s instructions, wearing appropriate personal protective equipment, and being aware of your surroundings to avoid accidents.
