How not to unload a big crawler

12. October 2018 | Comments (5)

A near miss occurred earlier this week, while unloading a 600 tonne Kobelco 6000SL crawler crane from a barge. We are not sure where it was, but indications are that it was somewhere in the Middle East.

Off she comes - close to tipping

And down she goes

The team allowed the operator to drive the crane, complete with fully rigged boom, along two ramps some distance above the ground, until the point where they tipped. Miraculously the crane remained on its tracks and no one was hurt.

Definitely one for our Death Wish series. Have a safe weekend!

There?s no way this would have happened if the operator had an award winning EPIC Tideway induction

They did very well not to have that over, the operator has the biggest set of balls in the industry. The Americans would of had that proper over and face planted into the concrete, then told us English it's not there fault and they saved us from the Germans.
