Over the past ten years there has been an increasing need for deeper digging and higher capacity dredges for both mineral mining and marine construction on inland waters and offshore, with such needs continuing to escalate. Of the various types of dredges, the hydraulic cutterhead and bucket-line ladder dredges are especially important because they are continuous digging machines with a high order of availability. Consequently this article presents recent developments, characteristics, relative economics and applications of these two types of ladder dredges.
