The paper presents the results of experimental and analytical study of the innovative, non-driven mechanism of the cable excavator bucket swing. This required a mathematical model of the digging workflow to be complemented with the necessary technical characteristics of the working body elements, including hydraulic cylinders, performing the role of kinematic links of variable length and their connecting pipelines in the adopted mechanism scheme. The results obtained on the basis of the mathematical model were verified by the experiment and proved to be quite a reliable tool that can simulate the bucket swing mechanism operation in a variety of production conditions on different types of cable excavators.
