    They lost everything, and now no one will hire them and no one will insure them and no one will give them any business permits.

    Thanks YouTube for keeping the bad low ballers from making anymore money.

    True, but not caught on video and made into a viral video and cost the entire company their reputations and made them the laughing stock of town.

    I would think using that much Sany equipment would make you the laughing stock to start with.

    This isn't the first time Global Excavating has made headlines, about 2-3 years ago they sent a 21 year old kid with a class 3 license with air endorsement down a 13% grade with a tandem and pup trailer, loaded, and over weight in a no truck zone, he lost his brakes, and careened into a parked car and flipped over.
    Camera crews from the local TV news showed up after they got more of their trucks coming out of the construction zone taking the same route, so they went up the excavator operator and they asked him some questions, as soon as the operator caught on that they had captured these trucks on video and the accident that happened the same day, he right away started giving the same old routine I hear every time "I speak no english, no understand, come back later, no speak, no speak".......:

    The truck route that they were supposed to use was only 2 kilometers longer with less stops, but they cheaped out and took the hill and payed for it dearly.
