The driver of an All Terrain crane managed to keep his vehicle on the road after he lost a front tire between near Pinkafeld (between Graz and Vienna), Austria last Wednesday.
The crane, a three axle Grove GMK belonging to rental company Prangl, suffered some minor damage to hydraulic lines in the wheel bay. The fire fighters tied it up to stem the oil leakage, while they waited for a service team to arrive. The crane was then repaired and was able to return to depot under its own steam.
