    I wonder why they transported it upside down? Seems like it would continue to leak fluids like that. The EPA here would have a filed day with him.

    I wonder if he survived. I don't think those things have ROPS.

    Damn, they must have been paving right on the edge. I don't see any other way to flop a paver over like that.

    not unless he jumped off the machine for some reason thinking he would be back on in a second, or he wasn't paying attention ahead and kept staring at the screed box, and started on over.

    I think it fell off the truck when they went around the bend. Since there is no black top material in the stream or in the augers of the machine.

    Blaw knox!

    Hi everyone, I'm new here. I was thinkin It's a Blaw knox, and every time in the past twenty years when i got stuck runnin a blow knutz, I often would have loved to point it over a cliff and jump off. Ya can just go to your local Walmart and git ya another one. Oh by the way " I hate blaw knox"
    Flame on! Terry

    I would agree that it probably fell off of a trailer while being moved. My reasoning is that the lines are already painted on the road.

    I'd imagine goin down the road at 60 that all of the fluids would be streaming off behind him goin all over the windshields of the following trafic.I bet it wouldnt take too long for EPA too find him. Looks like its bound down well this time though.

    It looks as if they were just finishing the job. If you look real close in the last picture you can see on the right side of it a line painting truck. Look real close and you can see the guide wheel on the guide stick on the truck.
