I'd have thought it was putting a lot of stress on the centre pivot. WIth all that weight at the front it was OK reversing down but I'd hate to think what would happen if the pivot gave way.

Assembling a Hitachi EX8000E.
Love the corporate speak about it being an honour and how it will be perfect, but more people should have a pride in a job well done. These guys certainly look like they do. I've bought too much stuff over the years where the people assembling it obviously don't care, which is a real shame.

Thought it was graham just goes to show how a different day or even crew can make all the difference to a job and a company's profile
aye ..... and be damned sure you know who you're tandem lifting with ..... did a tandem with a guy years ago ... he had my old TMS 300 Grove off me and was driving it ... me in a 30t Demag lifting 'feet' off a walker at Swansea docks ... they were a lump .... in hindsight i should've declined it, not knowing what sort of op he was ..... the stetson should've been a warning :giggle::giggle: .... wrecked my bloody winch putting too much on to me hoisting far too fast on his end:mad::mad:

here's one to put @Hydremaduck to shame / out of biz :eek: ..... first item up
Pretty sure I posted the pics of that set up when we had it on M25 / A2 back in 2007/8 QMB Quick Move Barrier. It was used to alter flow priority. 2 lanes into town in am with 1 lane out, then changed late afternoon for evening rush hour.
Best craic was at night on M25 when they put traffic into 1 lane and someone broke down! Cars could squeeze by until a truck got to it and couldn't! That was job completely **cked until I went to investigate why traffic was stationary!
Popped ditching bucket over top and pulled it sideways to make a passing bay! ;)

Yep, that pic was taken the day we went back to work after the fatality, hence the rust on the bucket, she hadn’t moved in 10 days, position I left it in when I bailed out and started running 😢

Korea’s answer to Duck girl. Volvo with a tiltrotator, just changed from Steelwrist to Engcon. Nice machine a a few different bits. Particularly interested in the valve to pulse the bucket ram. Never seen one before and can’t find any details googling it.
