Fortunately, the driver saw what was about to happen and jumped out. What could he have done differently?
He had the truck set up the Wrong Way, it should of been the outriggers on 90degrees of the Trucks original Position, Any good and well Trained Operator, if they went to the Correct School to Train, Would Know that they way he was Lowering that the trucks position did not have the Outriggers for Support. As Dave Brown Pointed out. Once he got below the Original Level of the Ground, that is when the Shift in Weight Took over and the Lack of Proper Positioning cause for the Perfect Hoisting FAIL.
Complete and total operator fail.
A thought would have been to set the crane with outriggers infront and behind from the position the dozer was being lowered, Not to the sides. They don’t help at that point.
He could have took a physics class in high school and told them “no freakin way am I doing this” Once the bulldozer went below his level he didn’t have a chance, the fulcrum changed giving the bulldozer the upper hand.
