Walking excavators-draglines are designed for stripping operations according to the transportless technological scheme. They differ reliability of work of the electric drive, the raised readiness of mechanisms for work, high speed of movement, good cross-country ability, wide technological possibilities, simplicity of maintenance and repair.
The crawler-mounted draglines – are mobile machine based on EKG-5A and EKG-12A open-mine excavator series. The machines are designed for mining and overburden operations with rock dumping to spoil or with conveying excavated rock to transport vehicles. On customer’s request, the machine can be equipped with buckets of various types and customized for specific operation conditions. The crawler-mounted draglines can operate at any small soft-rock (sand, clay, marl) opencast mines, at mines with minor overburden operations required, at coal strip mines, at construction-material open pits and gold placer deposits. The machine can also be used for trench digging, channel and dam construction and for operations at industrial sludge areas.
