Tub Pullout - Big Muskie

'Big Muskie' was the largest dragline ever built, with a 168m3 bucket. Pulling out the tub required a fair bit of effort.

your statement that it took some effort to pull the old tub out and back in was roughly 27,000 hp. I know because I was a welder riding the tub both out and back in. I figured the hp of each machine and then added them up. Ibelieve that the new tub weighed around 4 million pounds. We had about ten sets of rr track on ties for it to slide on JR Few
