Rieth-Riley Construction Co. Inc. Bucyrus Erie 88B Dragline South Bend Pit
The next phase of mining sand and gravel at our South Bend, Indiana sand and gravel operation required excavation under water as most of the material above the water line had already been removed. The Bucyrus Erie 88B Dragline was selected to take on that task. At 275,000#, the 88B, with a 100ft boom, has the size and power to handle a 5cyd bucket digging to depths of up to 40ft below water. Cycle times in the one minute range give production capacities to keep up with the raw material demands of the processing plant on site. The addition of the 88B extends sand and gravel reserves many years into the future at South Bend.
