dragline bucket

Dragline bucket.

The dragline bucket, designed and fabricated by Van Reenen Steel for the mining industry, was given a special mention at the 2005 Southern African Institute of Steel Construction (SAISC) Steel Awards.

Seven of these lightweight steel dragline buckets have been manufactured for the South African, Congolese and Australian mining industries.

The structure of the bucket is made primarily from SSAB Swedish Steels Hardox 400 and Weldox 700 and is designed with reduced stresses in mind. Welding is designed, monitored and tested with one of South Africa’s top welding engineers regularly contracted to ensure the design and subsequent welds are of the highest standards.
