Rigging and chain designed to be lightweight enough to maximize bucket payloads, while being robust enough to reduce unplanned maintenance and keep machines digging.

35+ Years of Experience
After decades of dragline experience, we have a deep understanding of the industry and requirements. We’ve been leaders in the space for almost three decades as the first to bring hammerless rigging to the marketplace.
Masters of the Rigging Lock System
Since developing the first hammerless rigging lock, the Surelock™, in 1999, CR has been at the forefront of safer, more secure locking systems for draglines. The relentless pursuit of excellence has led to the C-Lock, a hammerless retaining system with double locking mechanisms. It’s engineered to ensure your locks last as long as your rigging and bucket so you can keep digging for longer.
It’s simple: you need dragline chain and rigging to both last expected campaign life and not fail prematurely. When components break unexpectedly, you’re looking at losing tens of thousands of dollars each hour that the machine is down, while the problem is diagnosed, your maintenance team organizes parts and cranes, and the repair is done.
Our rigging reduces this unscheduled down time with rugged components engineered to withstand the harshest conditions.
You’re In Good Hands
We’re known for our on-site support. You’ll develop a close relationship with your site account manager, who will provide regular inspections and hands on advice, ensuring that parts are changed out at appropriate times. X-Calibre, our condition monitoring app, provides almost real-time reports, so your maintenance team can make the most accurate decisions.
Once your rigging needs repair, send it to our fabrication and repair center to be refurbished to OEM specs. You’ll never even know it’s been repaired.
