Page Draglines

The Hoffman Page seemed to be a clean and well maintained dragline, in contrast to some of the others in the region. In the rebuilding process, a Cat diesel replaced one of the original Page engines. The photo above shows the machine dumping at just about its maximum height. The operator had to be alert not to let the bucket be pulled into the sheave, or there would be real trouble. As late as 2003, this dragline, repainted and under different ownership, still operated in the Karthaus area.
