Inexperienced Operator

Topic Originally Created in July of 2006 by AWOOD:


Got this call from a contractor and said that he had a 140,000 lb. crane that was stuck in a driveway. Upon arrival we found this unit, luckily it was just surface stuck and not mired. The crane was able to help and it was a successful recovery. It was on a slight grade up-hill with a very slick mud surface.

Thats like a 200 ton Grove, it should have all wheel steer and 8 wheel drive. Put that sucker in turtle gear and it should walk itself out. The Liebherr's have hooks on the frame below the bumper to hook to, makes it real nice. In California, they have to put the boom in a dolly to make weight. Looks like a fun job. It probably weigh more like 150,000. The 200 ton Liebherr I ran weighed that much without the dolly. Nice machines, but dont move the boom without the outriggers lol

Okay, I'm going to have to join the crowd and say "Good job." You showed me something new or a different way of doing something. Cool, keep these kinds of pics coming and next time show us your hook ups and how you connected the vehicle. I had to zoom the picture and couldn't tell. But I like what you did here, thanks

Nice work Allen. It's nice seeing a job done when the operator cares enough to take care of his equipment. Far better to over rig, than under rig. What's it going to hurt? Take a little longer?DW Carter WM92343
