August 5th, 2008

I don't know anything about these accidents. I was searching my computer for other pics and ran across them. A hazard of being busy and forgetting about them.
One is a crossbased crane. I really don't understand why we don't just have these cranes ballasted. They go over all of the time. If I'm a liar, I suggest you review the blog.
The second is of an apparent shock load. Do not pull on stuck loads. I've went for a ride once when a shotcrete pile (spoils) was stuck. I had stopped hoisting and was telling the rigger over the radio that it was stuck when it broke free. The pile went over the riggers head. Who knows why this crane was shock loaded, but this is the result. Fortunately the crane stayed vertical!
