This machine tipped over while loading a lorry on site. We pulled it on its tracks using another similar machine. Got it running again. The driver still trembling from his misadventure assured us he could drive the excavator onto the low loader.
But when he lifted the boom up he was sprayed with hyraulic oil from a burst pipe on the bucket ram. I have never seen anyone jump out of a cab so quick, and we could not help but laugh. We finished loading the machine while the driver dried himself with my overalls.
Those were the days.
