    i aint sayin my day was worse but!!

    i seen the pic of the hoe turned over and it reminded me of when I done this i, i turned it over one day stackin dirt behind a scraper, to load out later and when i was backing up to shove on it some i turned and the wheel fell into a small hole and it just fell over, it kinda screwed up my back a little but not a big deal THIS IS WHY YOU HAVE INSURANCE
    and **** happens anyway if one of my guys would of done it i probably woulnd't of understood how easy it was to do

    We took the CaT 953 and turned it back over, the rope is tied to another peice of equip

    the loader did'nt get it too bad and i wouldnt have either if i had my belt on

    The loader landed on the weight box and the bucket just like it sets in the pic, if i had the bucket down it would have been on the cab but if i had the boom down it might not hav rolled ?

    I had back surgery sept. 18th 3weeks ago partialy due to this i have been stuck in the house since but i have been getting around in the last 4-5days and just about back up and runnin again

    IT COULD HAVE BEEN WORSE, all well stuff happens

    equiptment tips easily if the bucket is up and loaded. we run a telehandler for our roofing business and you have to be VERY careful when the boom is out and the tractor is in motion.

    Ive got some pictures of our excavation accidents over the years, i'll try and post some.

    One employee rolled a 6 wheel drive off road truck(think tonka truck) last year. Thankfully they have a 360 degree articulating center.

    Might be one of those tug boat type ropes designed for pulling ships around.

    the rope was to help pull the machine over:rolleyes:. when we started the recovery the hinge on the loader was a high point(machine was truning) but that idea was scraped and the 953 took over
