Platinum Sponsor BigWheelArchives Posted April 15, 2018 Platinum Sponsor Share Posted April 15, 2018 Topic originally created November 2006: 11-13-06 Received a call from a local conrete company stating that one of their mixers, loaded with approx. 8 yards in it, was leaning and about to roll over into a new foundation. The bank was breaking away and time was at an essence. We responded with our 60 ton rotator, backed up to the unit, two parted one wire rope to the back of the pull hook, and ran the second wire rope to a snatchblack from the right side of the wrecker and hooked the frame rail on the rear of the mixer. We then lifted the mixer straight up and using the second line, just creeped it over til the mixer was on solid ground. DarrenWessex Recovery UK said: You guys have a habit of making a difficult/sensitive job look easy. Bet the rotator came into its own on this one. Nice work and pics.Take care out there danielswt said: you didn't scratch the chrome d-right didja???? thats a fine looking "make it look easy" job mooresbp said: Nice work guys.One question. If they were worried it would roll over why was that one guy still in the area where it looked like it would roll to? Maybe the angle is wrong just doesn't look like the place to be.GeorgeMoore's BP We'll see you on down the road BigWheelRecovery said: George good question,that fellor was checking the line or string to see how much the bank moved the wall in.As the bank moved in so did the 2x4 that was holding the form.Also we normaly would lift the hood an strap the frame in back of the motor then lift the mixed but the ground was moving to much around the rear wheels making it to dangerous to climb up top. thanks BOB Michael212 said: Nice work!
