During the spring and summer months, Cotter Dragline Services, Inc. travels all over Michigan digging ponds, small lakes, and moving sand and dirt with a dragline – a huge earth moving machine with a two-ton bucket hanging from a thick cable on the end of a boom.

During an average season one or two ponds a week can be dug. While the work can be challenging, Cotter Dragline Services, Inc. enjoys creating ponds for homeowners along with other excavation work. Building a pond can add enjoyment and beauty to a homeowner’s property along with raising its property value.

It’s a sight to see when you start with a field or an unattractive area thought to be a useless piece of property transformed into a thing of beauty within a short period of time. Our customers love to watch us work! It is common for crowds to stop to watch these powerful machines do their job.

Early spring and late fall you will find Cotter Dragline Services, Inc at your local farm cleaning the lagoons hauling their product away to be used as a “green” fertilizer for the farmer’s fields. Now that’s organic!

No job is too big or too small for Cotter Dragline Services, Inc. From building a new pond, cleaning an existing pond, or filling in some pot holes in your driveway Cotter Dragline Services, Inc. takes care of their customers. From start to finish we leave our customer’s happy!
