    Cranes : Heavy Lifting Machinery and Logistics

    Since the world is changing to larger , taller , bigger sizes , and no man-made disruptions in sight ,
    it is probably interesting to look into the machinery that had been , and that will be .

    Ultra-Large Ship Sizes need also counterparts onshore , to be able to handle the bulk : Cranes .

    There seems not to be a real marine crane manufacturer in the U.S.A. anymore ;
    and the brand 'Liebherr' seems to be the most well known name everywhere .

    This US-crane operator deploys most cranes from Liebherr , but also Manitowoc ( Grove, National Crane, Potain ) :

    World's largest drag-line excavator used during the height of the surface mining era:



    I took a tour of a similar drag-line. It was enormous. The interior featured repair shops, bathing facilities, break-rooms, restrooms, and two very comfortable control cabs.

    Draglines and bucket wheel excavators in open pit mining

    Some years ago , I remember a YT video about the Black Thunder Coal mine :
    https://www.mining-technology.com/projects/thunder/
    Black Thunder operates several individual open pits within its enlarged concession area, using five large draglines for overburden handling. The dragline fleet includes Ursa Major, the largest of the three, a Bucyrus-Erie (B-E) 2570WS model weighing some 6,700t. The third-largest dragline ever built, it was assembled on site over a three-year period at a cost of $50m.

    Its 110m-long boom carries a 122m³ bucket. Of the other draglines, Thor, a B-E 1570W, has a 97.5m boom and a 69m³ bucket, while Walking Stick is a B-E 1300W with a 92m boom and a 34m³ bucket.





    Here a German bucket wheel excavator "ate" a Caterpillar bulldozer ...
