The First Edition of this dragline dictionary was started in 2005 and first released in 2009. Many hundreds of hours were spent sourcing photos and writing information. It proved to be very popular and was universally recognized as being a tremendous resource for anyone working in any capacity with draglines. We were motivated by the number of new people working in and around draglines not being familiar with the terminology and jargon. This includes operators, supervisors, maintenance people, engineers and managers. All need this resource available at some time.
Nine years of work has gone into this fourth edition of the Dragline Dictionary. A number of new entries have been made along with a large number of photos and expanded writing on productivity issues.
