  1. Oh, what it does. I thought you asked what it is. If it is indeed a dredge, its purpose is to move solid material from a watery location to a less watery one, either to keep a waterway navigable, or as part of mining some ores such as gold.

  3. it looks like the machine you use to tear up roads with

  4. Aren’t those used for crushing rocks/making gravel?

  5. I don’t think it would be a crusher – it doesn’t seem to have jaws. But it could be an auger. You stick the low end at the crusher’s outlet and the high end above a truck. With the wheels on it like that, it’s probably more plausible than my dredge theory.
