Worsley offers another dredging option

Digger Blogger | 12:10, Mon February 10 2014

The floods continue and another company striking while the iron is hot... or wet… or underwater… is Worsley Plant.

Worsley is promoting the Remu Big Float as just the thing for aquatic environments like shoreline, rivers, swamps, waste ponds and canals.

Finish company Remu has been making amphibious excavators for 10 years now. Its Big Float is an excavator mounted on a patented pontoon undercarriage that can be narrowed to make it easier to transport on roads.

Worsley says it can dredge to depths of nine metres. Special hydraulic tools can be attached to cut away at riverside foliage.

Of course, I can't help thinking that for the poor folk of the Somerset levels (- unless your name is Sam Notaro -) that horse has already well and truly bolted.

Anyway, let's hope Worsley and other plant supplies with dredging equipment, start to get some good business out of all of this.
