Ditto with what big Iron is saying. The only way this happened is if it did only weigh 52-53,000 on the scale in the cab. Typically the lmi's show 2-3000lbs of preload weight (block, ball, stowed jib) so he may only have had 50,000 of crawler picked up. If it was actually 63,000, I don't think that crane would have picked it up. He wouldn't have had the chart to do it, and override switches don't keep you from breaking it, the chart would be all structural in that close. Be glad you're not on the news. Anyone else bothered by the lack of any cribbing under the outriggers, on that dirt, with a load like that? Anyone not think he had to hit the override to make the pick?
