nice no outriggers down
lol @ the redneck commentator
Your narrating sucks no counter weights and soft ground equals a turn over …
Hell I only live about an hour from here.
Not 500k lbs as it sets. That 250 goes 160k ish over the road, no weights as it is here.
That rental crane is no where near half a million lbs. A locomotive weighs 376,000 lbs and a truck cant haul it.
How is that awsome. Its on it’s side.
The geographic location, the inexperienced personnel, and the cameraman’s accent explain why this happened. Go buckeyes. “We heard a thud. Then we come ’round this is all we found.”
another day in paradise is when you dont fuckup
I’d own the damned road if I had a crane as my personal vehicle… Parking would be impossible, though.
looks like somebody unlocked the suspension
This appears to have happened during the setup of the machine as 1) the counterweights are not attached and 2) the outriggers are not extended to stabilize the crane.
It is a great reminder to operators. Judging from the proximity of the truck and crane, the roadway was clearly not wide enough to allow for safe setup, and likely, as a contributing factor, influenced the decision to set up without extending outriggers.
it could have been a lot better you could have been hurt…..2M views then
Are those broken sheaves plastic?
Nobody died, still a good day.
@Flowmaster925 lol it says erection……… Sounds like you might have a Beavis hanging out your Butthead!
@techdavey1000 ….. Sorry, but I have to disagree. OSHA would have never tolerated the use of horse, oxe or even elephants to build the pyramids.
@billwho62 They had thousands and thousands of slaves and they rolled the stone blocks on rollers up inclined planes. Even today there are some quarries where cunning methods are used to extract and move the stones. In the Middle Ages in Europe there were cranes worked by treadmills but in Egypt temporary sand ramps were often used to raise heavy objects. After the stones were in place the sand was removed. Do not overlook the fact that they also had horses, oxen and probably elephants.
@techdavey1000 In the “good old days” cranes had alarm bells to warn when the cranes limit was approaching. First bell you get worried, second bell you get really worried! Maybe modern cranes don’t have bells as this saves money LOL!….. Maybe you can help me. I notice you speak of the good ole days, could you tell me how they built the pyramids of Egypt?
There’s a swing shovel and a JCB (backhoe US) in the video. Surely those two machines could get the crane back up again. At the end of the day its all about the ton-metres but some people can’t do the maths. In the “good old days” cranes had alarm bells to warn when the cranes limit was approaching. First bell you get worried, second bell you get really worried! Maybe modern cranes don’t have bells as this saves money LOL!
der hatte keine Stützen ausgefahren…. naja Amis
lol it says erection
@TheMeganwilliamson gja888 is correct there sunshine. Your larger hydros have mostly gravity fall booms.
Good time to change the oil.
“Its a gravity boom, no power down……gja888 1 week ago”
hell no it is not a “gravity boom”……WTF!!!!!
this is a hydraulic truck crane ……. not a “FRICTION” crane
which uses gravity to lower the booms……..
