We have used Sauerman/Cresent drag scraper buckets available. Swamp, bog, marsh, mire, moor, muskeg or what ever it is called in your part of the world. Any ground situation where equipment cannot be operated directly on the surface of the material being excavated is ideal for the skyline excavator. Potential applications include mining sand and gravel from "mined out" pits, excavating peat bogs, cleaning sludge ponds, and agricultural lagoons dredging channels or digging trenches for pipe, cable, or optical fiber crossings.
