Dragline excavators can either be built off of regular lifting cranes, or they’re constructed on site (for larger units). The smaller types are typically employed in civil engineering projects like road building, waterway dredging or to drive pylons. The larger designs are most often used for mining operations instead (1).
Transport of large dragline excavators isn’t common, as they are purpose-built on site and weigh anywhere from 8,000 - 13,000 tons. In contrast, their smaller counterparts are often transported - as they are built to be dismantled and loaded onto trailers.
