Platform rolls

We have received photographs of a truck mounted platform that rolled/overturned in Dartford, Kent in the UK.

The two axle platform, belonging to regional rental company Orion, somehow went into a roll and overturned during the early hours of Wednesday, as it approached a roundabout on the A2026/Burnham Road in Kent. We understand that no one was hurt in the incident.

This is of course more of a traffic accident than an operating incident, although it does highlight the importance of driving such a machine with care, given that the boom location near the top of the vehicle, gives such a platform, a relatively high centre of gravity.

We will update as soon as we received more information
The recovery gets underway
