Default Crane overloading (yet another)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BxmjDu5k7wg

However, this one is in Chile, I thought they were pretty safety conscious there.


Although this one could happen here in the Us, or maybe even the EU.

The operator had his seat too far forward.

Aw hell, that'll buff out . ..


In all seriousness I wonder if the amigo holding the tag line had the sense to let go?

The hook and block look like they are re usable.
The track loader....maybe a cracked weld or two...
The crane, well, the interior of the cab is cover with shit

I like watching videos like this, especially when no one gets hurt. I consider what went wrong and how to prevent.


In this video I think the mistake was made when the operator rotated the boom. I think it better if he would have slowly pulled the boom up and moved the crane straight back. Another option may be to just move straight back once the load cleared the edge. I have never operated a crane, I'm not sure which approach would be better.

Yes, for not ever running a crane, your pretty observant.

Lifting over the "ends" is different (usually better) than "over the sides".

I've never run a crane either, but my first response to this thread hints at part of the problem also...........not enough weight at the rear of the machine.

It would have been a different story if that track crane had outriggers to the sides. I don’t ever recall one of those cranes having those though, not that I have been around a lot of them. He was definitely over the crane limit.

I gotta agree with doug here, you've got a good eye for detail and an understanding of how the load shifted when the operator spun the house.


How about the two homies on the wall? Think they got a good look at that dozer on the way down?

Bouncing the crawler off the face of the wall, set up a side swing that overcame the counter weight on the crane. It looks like the operator was in such a hurry to swing it over the top, that he did so before the crawler was clear of the wall.
