Crane lands on McDonalds
September 20, 2013 | Comments (39)
The crane, a two axle Kato city type Rough Terrain crane owned by Reedsbray Cranes of Gateshead, was lifting an outdoor chiller unit as part of the redevelopment work to the outlet's drive-through facility.
The crane was short-rigged on both sides with outrigger jacks straight down- within the machines overall width, and mats were in use. It therefore looks as though this was an overloading issue of some kind.
The restaurant was open at the time with customers and staff inside, but no one was hurt in the incident
Two larger cranes were called in to extract the crane from the roof.
