Dredge Machine

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“A machine used for clearing out or deepening the channels of rivers or harbors. Dredging-machines are variously constructed, the simplest being like the oyster-dredge described above, only having a perforated cowhide bag instead of the chain-net, and a stronger ‘spoon’ or iron mouth to the bag.” — Chambers’ Encyclopedia, 1875
