Here is the Bucyrus-Erie 3270W Lot 2, north of Evansville, IN . This picture was taken in Dec. 2005 and was about half way through dismantling. The boom and all of the internal machinery has been removed. This dragline was a sister to the Lot 1 Machine that was at Marion, IL, both were owned by Amax Coal. These machines with tied at 2&3 behind Big Muskie for largest draglines.

Here is the best shot I have of the 176 yard bucket

This front shot shows where the 330 foot boom rested when it was parked.

These pictures were taken Jan 28, 2006.

This will give an idea of the size of this machine, The shackle is from a portion of the rigging cables. The drag and hoist cables were either 4 or 5 inch and there was four of each.
