Loader Crane Overturns in UK

01/22/14

Bath, England

A loader crane overturned while lifting a generator in the city of Bath earlier today

The crane – possibly a Fassi F800XP – owned by Wheeler & Son Machinery Movers of Bridgwater, Somerset was set up with outriggers down but beams fully retracted. The arrangement clearly did not provide sufficient stability for the lift, once the load was removed from the truck bed. The boom came down onto the Lamb & Lion pub roof preventing a full overturn.
