The lift overturned on soft ground

The lift, a recently delivered Bronto S70XDT owned by Summit Tower Hire of Brendale, near Brisbane, was travelling on a road near Dalby, Western Queensland, when the ground subsided under the wheels on one side of the truck, causing it to overturn onto its side.

Thankfully no one was injured in the incident. The unit was one of four new 70 meter Brontos that the fast growing truck mounted lift specialist has added to its fleet.
