Ekman Dredge Standard 6″ x 6″ x 6″














Overview:

This is the grab to choose for soft, finely divided littoral bottoms that are free from vegetation, such as sticks and decayed leaves (or with short, erect vegetation only) as well as intermixtures of sand, stones and other coarse debris. Two thin, hinged overlapping lids on top open during descent to let water pass through. They close during retrieval and are held shut by water pressure to reduce washout. The closing springs easily unhook from their loaded position for safe handling during transportation and storage. An important and distinguishing feature of the Wildco® design is the messenger-operated Twin-pin™ scoop release mechanism. This release is very reliable, has few working parts and is the best of its type in the field.To operate, attach to a line and pass through the trip mechanism. Set the springs over the knobs and pull the jaws completely apart. Lower the dredge till it rests on the bottom and send a messenger down the line, allowing the springs to close the scoops.


Features:

• Scoops overlap to reduce sample loss

• Dependable release closing

• Stainless steel construction

• Lightweight yet stable due to wide base

• Extra weights available

• Center pivot for low bottom disturbance
