    Please, no fatalities, guts, or gore! Only ones where the operator walked away.

    L-218 Punched Through Road

    Stretch very nearly drowned, but he was able to push the side window out with his back, and slither out between the cab and side guard. A very narrow escape!

    More L-218

    Stretch poses on his machine. He was back to work later that day, once the machine was back on its feet.

    Why Low-Bedding is Dangerous in the Winter....

    I know it looks like a head-on, but no. The whole works spun out on the hill, and came down backwards. The push truck ended up doing a doughnut.

    Continued....

    The brains have it figured out, the rock truck dumped a load of ballast, the loader walked off on it, and then the loader lifted the bed back onto the road.

    trakloader: Reminds me of when I worked at Juskatla. It probably wasn't supposed to be that way, but it always seemed that MBQCD was at the top of the hills when winter came. That's when I was glad to not be a truck driver. Thanks for starting this thread. This should be interesting.
