    Sometimes they make the concrete walls like that to narrow for big trucks. I have had some tight spots to get through them.
    I don’t know why this guy hit it with the rear axels .

    Definitely not tracking straight. If it were he wouldn’t have hit whatever was in the curb lane.

    I guess you have to judge how heavy the wood is before you try to lift it.

    @r-ice Interesting video with the crane there. I guess the most damage was likely done to the crane itself.

    yah they are pretty lucky it didn’t fall on the building. I thought they generally have an idea how much to cut and how much it is capable of moving.

    WOW, Guess they did not expect that much trunk to be that heavy.

    I have pic’s of when they cut the tree out front of my home, glad that did not happen.

    lol these are great for the beginners to learn from their mistakes, they must be expensive mistakes though.

    Here in our shop, every time I need to use the torches, we have to call for a hot work permit, and stop an hour before our shift ends, then security comes by every half hour for three hours after, and prior to giving the permit they inspect the area,

    I’m thinking maybe some crane operators need a better training course?
    The tree guys dropped a big tree on a neighbors house . I didn’t see it happen but they did have a crane. They got a whole new roof.

    Not sure about where you are, Ron, but here, in Ontario, a mobile crane operator is required to serve either a 5 or 6 year apprenticeship. His qualifications increase by load rating til he reaches the 1000 ton rating or whatever the maximum crane capacity he will be using. The operator is the crew chief. He is responsible for the entire operation; moving and assembling the crane on site, making the lift and disassembling for return. A large crane can take a dozen or more semis to transport.
    It’s a really tough learning curve, but worthwhile from a safety standpoint.

    I would think the same training would apply here also. I don’t know where all the crane videos were made but seems some didn’t learn enough!
    I would say maybe the weather, wind, ground stability and so on would come into play also. I think the cranes have a scale on them that tells the operator how much they are lifting. I am no expert by any means.

    I was pretty shocked also at the amount of incidents recorded on on film. I would have thought it was a rare occasion. This video makes it seem that it happens quite often.

    A total of 86 incidents involving the collapse or major structural failure of a tower crane have
    been identified as taking place between 1989 to 2009. These occurred as follows:

    As per crane statistics from http://www.craneaccidents.com/statistics/
    Here are incidents worldwide until 2009.
    1989 – 1 Incident identified
    1990 to 1998 – No incidents identified
    1999 – 2 Incidents identified
    2000 – 3 Incidents identified
    2001 – 1 Incident identified
    2002 – 5 Incidents identified
    2003 – 3 Incidents identified
    2004 – 3 Incidents identified
    2005 – 10 Incidents identified
    2006 – 7 Incidents identified
    2007 – 18 Incidents identified
    2008 – 15 Incidents identified
    2009 – 15 Incidents identified

    Seems like accidents are going up in frequency. Here also are the reason for the accident

    • Erection/Dismantling/Extending of the crane – 29 Incidents (34%)
    • Extreme Weather – 15 Incidents (18%)
    • Foundation Issues – 2 Incidents (2%)
    • Mechanical or Structural Issues – 4 Incidents (5%)
    • Misuse – 6 Incidents (7%)
    • Electrical/Control System Issues – 1 Incident (1%)
    • Unknown Cause – 28 Incidents (33%)

    This was a hot topic around the Milwaukee area back in 1999 when they were building the MLB stadium, Miller Park for the Brewers. Three construction workers died. Horrible tragedy.

    I remember a place I worked for a number of years ago the maintenance tech would just fire up the welding equipment no matter what time of day it was and no matter if the area was clear enough to work.

    I think we are also getting more on film as the exposure to more photographic tools are available, now everyone has a cell phone capable of high quality photo capture.

    I had a close call today with ripping some walnut. One piece, with a knot in it, decided that internal tension would close the kerf. One piece shot back from the blade as the cut finished and hit a piece of 3/4″ ply leaning against the wall.

    I could feel it going by my leg missing me by a whisker.

    Second pic is the new micro jig splitter and kerf keeper I went and bought. I was putting off buying this for a few weeks now but there it is ready to go. Easy installation, good instructions and it looks like a solid product.
