This project was to assist in assembling the clients dragline excavator on their job-site. A dragline excavator is used for civil engineering projects and surface mining and in this case to excavate limestone at a rock mine. Dragline excavators are often built by the same manufacturers of cranes and other similar heavy machinery and equipment. Dragline machines may be transported in pieces and assembled at the project sites such as in this case. They use a bucket system attached by the draglines to hoist and move material.
We provided two cranes to perform the heavy lift project of putting together this dragline. One was a 70 ton link-belt and the other a 120 ton grove gmk5120b.
