Page Draglines

The newer of R. S Carlin's Pages, a twin-engined machine that appears to be a Model 728, works near Snow Shoe in August 1971. Note in both photos the Page archless bucket. The absence of an arch was said to be an advantage in making the bucket lighter and in loading and emptying large rocks, which could sometimes stick fast under the arch. As I recall, at that time Carlin worked its draglines 24 hours a day Monday through Friday, with a single ten-hour shift on Saturday. The photo below shows the Page parked shortly after the Saturday crew finished for the day.
