Model DM-60 Depth Master

Introducing the IMS Depth Master (DM) 60, an affordable solution to all of your reservoir, hydropower, tailings dam, and port dredging needs. This portable dredge has been used all over the world from Guatemala to parts of Southeast Asia. The DM-60 can dredge silts, mud, loose small grain sand, and other light sedimentary materials using the dual marine prop drive system. The Depth Master standard bow thruster allows for quick turns or side current correction, and its optional water jet system can be used to break up consolidated layers of material.

1 This represents total flow capabilities of the pump – water and solids.

2 This represents theoretical maximum solids production.  This is calculated based on 25% solids by volume and 1 complete hour cutting and pumping material.  This estimate does not take into account material properties, time used for positioning, pumping distance or elevation. Buyer should consult IMS for production estimates based specifically around their application.
