Here are old crane buckets for sale gathered in a group below a ridge topped with an old Bucyrus Erie crane standing like the king of the hill. All of this used heavy equipment might be old and rusty, but it will still do what it was intended to do, which is dig…and dig big. That’s a traditional clam shell digging bucket in green and a dredge bucket in the foreground. All of these old cran buckets were eight to ten feet tall.
Most of this equipment is old and dated but there are working examples of these machines still in use every day. I have heard that many of the old parts sold from rare crane yards like this often go into export around the world, most notably to South America.
