728 Walking Dragline

This Page 728 was owned by the "RIVER HILL COAL CO." The machine operated at their "New Garden Mine" located near Pottersdale, PA, where it operated for several years. Tho the best of my knowledge, the machine dates back to around 1960 or 61. these Pics were taken in November 1984 by Jim Kizina, whlie visiting the machine to take measurements for a new Brake Band for the machine. Jim's not sure of the current status of the machine, but has indicated that it may have been scrapped in the min 90's.

Jim also sent pictures of the completed brake banmd that was built for the machine. Click here to see the pics of the completed band.
