The CR Hurricane™ dragline bucket represents the new industry standard in bucket design and technology. Launched in 2007, the Hurricane is a fast-filling, consistent and high-efficiency dragline bucket. It has a distinctive design with its patented, wide, low profile and slimline lip. The Hurricane provides substantial energy savings due to reduced drag energy when compared to traditional shaped dragline buckets.
Since 1988, CR has been the leader in dragline bucket innovation, delivering step changes in productivity with every new generation bucket delivered to dragline mining operations.
Through our unique scale testing facility located at our Technology Park, combined with dragline production data monitoring software and analysis, CR’s patented, best practice designs reduce weight, increase payload and increase availability for dragline operations around the world.
Payload capacity and fill time are two fundamental priorities when it comes to choosing the right dragline bucket for your mine and machine – not to mention safety, maintenance and longevity.
Designs and sizes to maximise mining conditions
We have deployed more than 250 of the most reliable, high-performance dragline buckets around the world.
Our designs allow our engineering products team to collaborate with you, to deliver a bucket to maximise the productivity of your dragline, in any mining conditions. With sizes available for all applications – from small class 8050 draglines to the largest 8750 class dragline bucket in the world, we have a combination of dragline bucket, dragline G.E.T, and rigging, to suit every mine condition, machine size, and model.
Support beyond delivery
In line with our i3R philosophy, our relationship with you continues long after a dragline bucket has been commissioned. We offer a range of complementary services to maximise the performance and life of your dragline bucket, including regular maintenance inspections to cycle-by-cycle performance analysis.
Optimise your bucket with tailored packages
Additionally, CR can tailor complete wear packages. We offer expert advice taking into consideration abrasiveness, campaign targets and digging conditions.
These packages include CR dragline buckets and others, plus of course our wide range of dragline ground engaging tools, including bucket teeth, dragline bucket-shrouds, adapters, and retainers.
