It is a bucket used on a dragline machine, which removes overburden(ground) on top of coal, in open cast mining.

Please have a look How to calculate Wear and Tear to see if your item and which category it may fit into and the system will calculate the depreciation accordingly.

We will have to get back to you about this as it would fall under mining equipment which is a specialised area of tax.
