Is the bucket wheel type of dredger easy to use

2021/01/20

Cutter suction dredger and bucket wheel dredger are the common types of dredger for river dredging. Cutter suction dredger uses reamer to cross cut the mud layer, while bucket wheel dredger uses bucket wheel to excavate the mud layer. Both of them have their own advantages. Of course, there is a big price difference. Generally speaking, the price of bucket wheel dredger is slightly higher than that of cutter suction dredger. The bucket wheel of bucket wheel dredger is suitable for the working environment with hard mud layer. The cross cutting force of the reamer is not as good as that of the bucket wheel. Of course, the torque of the hydraulic motor of the bucket wheel is also large, which is one of the main reasons for the higher price of the whole ship.
