Another rearwards overturn

A crane overturned this morning in Voorthuizen, the Netherlands due to the operator slewing over the side with full counterweight and raised retracted boom without sufficiently extending the crane's outriggers.

The crane, a four axle Liebherr All Terrain owned and operated by rental company Barneveldse Kraanverhuur was due to carry out a lift on a housing estate in Voorthuizen – midway between Amersfoort and Apeldoorn - when it went over.
The operator had only partially extended the rear outriggers and came down on the counterweight trailer

The crane was set up by a new roundabout, the operator had partially set the rear outriggers then raised the mainly retracted boom and slewed over the side, causing the crane to predictably tip rearwards. Thankfully no one was injured in the incident.
The boom came down into the road but no one apart from the crane operator was involved


One more thing you can say......(expletive deleted).
