Leading the Dredging Industry Since 1972

VMI, Inc. provides customers worldwide with top of the line dredging equipment. 

Since 1972 we have demanded excellent workmanship and quality be put into each and every VMI product made.


VMI’s horizontal cutterhead dredges are the choice when it comes to pond, lake, marina, or lagoon dredging.  These machines feature a standard recessed impeller pump for maximum particle passage, entrained gasses, and heavy, viscous slurries.  VMI’s patented full-width, flow-through suction cutterhead provides optimum torque and speed control for maximum material uptake while minimizing turbidity underwater.

Cutter Suction Dredges

VMI’s portable cutterhead suction dredges are the choice for dredging sand and gravel aggregate material, deepening channels, and reclaiming land due to erosion.  VMI offers one-truck transportable dredges and modular sectional dredges for transportation between jobs.  Both diesel and electric power options are available depending on your project needs.


We service, sell, rent, and offer training on dredges worldwide.  Our knowledgeable staff is available to assist you with any dredging related issues you may encounter.  Need help in determining the proper dredge for your needs? – Contact us today!
