CAT 793 DUMP TRUCK ACCIDENT

CAT 793 GETS DROPPED ONTO SHIP IN DURBAN HARBOUR SOUTH AFRICA

 That was some lucky break. A clean drop, with NO damage, and no injuries. Could have dropped over the railings. Give that an A+ "ACCIDENT".  I taught that truck chassis had enough falling energy to go through the deck or explode one of the tires.  Amazing how tough the deck and tires are.  Those 2 guys are very talented, not just anyone can multitask a sprint while shitting themselves all at once, years of experience.  the only major load that ever fell from one of our cranes was when my boss was lifting many many tons with chains. Scary when the chain snaps!  The broken chain was in between the wheel and body, got something in there that put too much stress on one link.  The other side it was in contact with just the tire itself.   That's why we don't use chains in the US for heavy lifting.  A chain is as strong as it's weakest link.  It is very difficult to rate a chain's capacity.  My experience, in the US we use "rated" nylon straps or chokers.  That's what happens when chains are used lifting a heavy load. Not to mention the constant rotating they were doing also.
