Our dredge products, from complete dredges to the most
basic dredging equipment, are guided by our mission
Provide dredges and dredging equipment to accomplish
productive and efficient dredge operation by moving a
high-density mixture through the discharge pipe at the target

If you are looking for a sand & gravel
dredge, we have what you need. Our dredges, with diesel or
electric power, with hullpump or ladderpump, reflect our design
philosophy of rugged simplicity. Twinkle Co dredges are built for one purpose - efficient sand & gravel production. We have
solutions for the unique challenges of sand & gravel
If you have a dredge, we have something you need to make it
better. From basic gauges to a CONVAC system, WARTHOG rotary
cutter basket to a Linear Cutter, winches to new flotation, our
dredging equipment can be added to your dredge to improve
performance and reduce the cost of production.
Successful dredging starts at the suction inlet of the dredge,
so it is critical that the dredge suction inlet has the proper cutter for
the deposit. To meet this critical need we have developed different
types of cutters for our dredges, the rotary cutter and the Linear Cutter. Our
experience with both types of cutter technology allows us to make the proper recommendation for your
Automation can make a significant increase in dredge performance.
Our Linear Cutter Automation Package (LCAP) Velocity Control
(VEECON) and Booster Inlet Control (BIPCON) are standard features
on our new dredging equipment and can be retro-fitted onto
existing dredges and booster units.
We are continuing to develop new products and blend new
technology into our existing products. Our latest is the PELICAN deep mining dredge with a maximum mining depth of 200 feet. We have also developed the MSB linear cutter.
