“The IMS 5012 HP is everything it was portrayed to be. We increased solids to 30% by volume, reduced pump system clogs from once every 15 minutes to once a week and increased our stability in the channel with the Starwheel Drive with TractionMaster technology. IMS builds one hell of a machine.”

“The new 5012 LP dredge works great! The increased efficiency with the patented Pump Defender and the whole machine in general will make it a great asset to the Bay Island Drainage District. And a big thanks to Ryan Horton for setting everything up and Rob Carufel of EDT Field Service for his expertise on running the machine and training us,”

“We operate an IMS 7012 HP Versi-Dredge and attest to its quality and exceptional performance that exceeded our expectations. We recently completed a coal ash project on the East Coast where we consistently pumped 1,500 cubic yards of ash per 8 hrs. shift. The 7012 HP worked with a booster pump to transport the material 6,000 ft. with 60 ft. elevation.

“I wanted to give you a quick update on the IMS 5012 HP Versi-Dredge that we purchased. Our client is very happy and impressed with the capability and performance of the dredge. We were particularly impressed with the ease of operation, one truck transportability, and your Starwheel Drive self-propulsion system which cut down set up time significantly and made our daily operations more efficient.”

“In 2015 we purchased an IMS 7012 HP Versi-Dredge and solid it to Uttar Pradesh Projects Corporation for ‘river training’. Essentially the dredge cut an 8km channel down to a depth of 5m to divert the flow of the river away from heavily populated areas to prevent flooding. The project was such a success that in 2019 we purchased another IMS 7012 HP Versi-Dredge and sold it to the Uttar Pradesh Government,”

“A portion of this drainage project involved re-habilitating some 20km of drainage canal through a swamp area. This posed two major problems, access and the removal of tough water weed infestation in the canal. After considerable research, MBB specified the IMS 5012 LP dredger unit with the WeedMaster cutterhead. This unit successfully completed the work on time and on budget. IMS also provided exceptional product support on this project. The success of this project was such that the City of Luanda subsequently purchased a similar machine to keep the feed canal for their main abstraction works in the Kwanza River clear of weed and fully functional.”

“This is to confirm that IMS has an excellent business standing and satisfaction record with our company for their good record in their on-time supply of the IMS Model 5012 HP Versi-Dredge. We purchased this dredge on October 2012 and continue using it successfully to date. As a result of our success and satisfaction with IMS, we purchased a second IMS Versi-Dredge on January 2015.”
