Must cost about $1m to do that based on fire truck costing

Height of fackery being displayed there. Firstly a front end loader is NOT the equipment to use there. Also, let's say some moron tell you"it go wuk," the minute that loader's wheels left the ground, that attempt should have been abandoned, and the rigging adjusted. Imagine if half way to being righted that truck had fallen back to the ground. Yes they were ultimately "successful" but that was ridiculous.

Well said! I hope this is not a reflection of their standard operating practices...

Been working in the construction industry for my entire work like... this is standard operating procedure for all contractors (oil&gas would be different though). I'm surprised that we have so few construction deaths to be honest.

Made worst by the fact that Sammy have cranes, articulating boom trucks that they could have mobilized to the site.

I could imagine the maco traffic on the other side of the highway while this was going on.

Considering the fact that JS trucks are usually driven by arses at velocities far beyond the 60 kph speed limit set for them, often times while carrying load.
This was to be expected to happen eventually, & as mentioned it surprising there aren't more or worse incidents in the construction sector.

The only thing a front end loader should be used for is to load stuff, skilful operator or not.
