Dragline Description

A dragline is a large piece of earthmoving equipment that slews on its base and is commonly used in civil engineering and surface mining.

A boom attached to the main frame suspends a bucket, attached by a wire cable, over the dig site to excavate material below the level of the base of the machine.  The bucket is lifted, lowered and dragged by hoist and drag ropes. The bucket fills as it is dragged across the material; the contents are then lifted and dumped away from the site.

Draglines range in size up to 13,500 tonnes.
