Find Out How An Excavator Dragline Works

A dragline excavator is a piece of heavy equipment used in civil engineering, surface mining and excavating. A large excavator uses a dragline to pull a bucket by a wire cable.  The operator lowers the bucket down to material that is supposed to be excavated.  The operator than draws the cable so that the bucket gets dragged along the ground surface and digs  into the material. After a while, the operator releases the drag cable and lifts the bucket to place where the material it scooped up will be dumped.
