  1. OK folks, allow me to explain what happened here. First off, I'm a certified crane operator with a license to operate large crawler cranes like this one. I'm also a certified crane instructor. The operator who normally would be on this rig was not present for some reason. Someone else was instructed to lower the boom due to the high winds that morning. The correct method for lowering boom with a lufer jib like this one is to bring the jib all the way to the ground first so that the wheels touch the ground and then you would lower the main boom down while rolling the jib across the ground. this method keeps the weight of all that boom from over coming the crane and tipping it over (in the video notice the wheels at the tip of the jib). The operator in this video was lowering the main boom down and failed to lower the jib first. By doing this the crane will topple over every time.

  2. Stupid motherfuckers using a crane of that size in a storm…….. serves u right dumb shit. Terrible people died should throw all the assholes in jail for manslaugthter

  3. They cut the overhead video before the massive profanity started. That video is the most NOO YAWK thing ever.
