If you look close he only hit by a tiny amount, the arm then stood up as it rammed through the overpass.

If the operpass had been 6" taller he probably would have cleared.

That boom was pointing in the other direction and was rotated upwards and backwards 110 roughly. (pun intended.)

x2.

i'm going to have to bring these pictures into work. we recently hired a new low boy driver and he left the boom locked up on a 710 back hoe and clipped an overpass. i'm pretty sure it just fucked up the hoe, not the bridge tho. he doesn't work for us any more .

and that is why you chain all boom arms down what sucks here is that they overlay the road ways and the sign doesn't get changed. so you have a 14' clearance and your load is 13' 8" so your good to go, well they did a 6" overlay so now it's 13' 6" not 14' and your 13' 8"

Piggy, Do you really think that chaining that boom down would have done a god damn thing?

Welll, if the arm wasn't full lowered, he probably would have noticed that he needed 36" more chain than usual.

I was about ready to scream 'CHOP' until I scrolled down more. This picture made the arm on the hoe look 2 X longer than standard. But it's just the angle


Imagine if you'd been driving on the overpass at the time and that bitch came up right in front of you. That would full bring the suck...

With that long of a boom and stick, the stick wont curl enough on the truck without unpinning the stick cylinder on top and lettin it lay flat or pulling the stick all together to get the boom under the height limit. Everytime any of our big hoes (992 -245, 345 etc) go on the truck, the stick gets pulled, and those are hoes with standard length sticks. Awesome pics BTW

how so?
it looks to me like very good construction, considering it is all formed concrete. i do not see a slight crack anywhere else on the entire bridge. a steel boom moving at 70 mph chained down to a trailer is going to rip through most anything.
