A video of a lift that purportedly occurred last week in Russia, - although it looks far too warm for Russia this time of year - is popping up all over the world, hopefully no one was hurt.

A vintage crane lifting a vintage piece of military equipment

Looking at the video it is hard to understand what they were trying to do, the crane is clearly undersized and it is made worse by the amount of boom out. The only positive thing is that the outriggers or ground did not give way. Click here to watch the video


How come that i see a lot of accidents with those types of cranes? I think it are Maz or "Super Maz" cranes or CKD cranes..? As far as i know they only make 25 and 28 tons cranes...
