Dredging innovations have taken major steps throughout history. However, the basic design of most clamshell buckets in use today has not changed for more than a century. At Cable Arm, we ask ourselves how we can improve the environmental clamshell design, the answer is with a product that surpasses expectations. Cable Arm, Inc is constantly innovating based upon job specifications, environmental limits and procedures, and site-specific obstacles. Therefore, all of our buckets are individually customized and built to order. We have many specific features to offer as well. To reduce windrowing and increase coverage area, we offer our overlapping side plates and over square footprint. Accurate and precise grading is offered with our precision-level cut. These features are in both cable and hydraulic closing models. Reduce time, cut costs, and minimize re-suspension throughout your entire excavation process. Whether you’re confined to a tight location or need to cover a vast surface area, have deep or shallow depth targets, include sloped surface areas, or have rigid environmental parameters. Cable Arm clamshells and ClamVision positioning software can provide the best solutions for your dredging needs.
