Truck hitting overpass? Who transports with the stick up? Or do all Longsticks need to be that way?
More than likely the stick would extend out past the legal limit so the driver was forced to run the machine forward. I can't remember the exact number, I want to say anything 14 feet past the last axle on a trailer is illegal, not including pole or logging bunks. Basically the overpass was too short so it rammed the stick up into the road above.
I think if it hangs off more than 4'...but anyway that's what happens when you move an excavator forwards...probably had never moved equipment before or something
thats one heck of a bill I wouldn't want to see. how would you like to of been driving by on it at the time.
I think I seen that picture on another message board.
The machine is loaded on the trailer backwards or it looks like its backwards.
I guess the saying **** happens
Just realized that. Thats what probobly did it.
Can you say ( FIRED )
The machine is being hauled on a rail trailer I guess they knew it was going to be over height on a conventional lowbed. Its amazing how a machine can sit on a rail bed and wood blocks
If the machine was on the trailer the right direction the knuckle of the boom wouldn't have caught the overpass it would prolly have slid under or lifted the overpass.
ya think his insurance rates are gonna go up?
I think you are right. 14' is a hell of a long way, but we could be wrong!
