Saw this Link Belt on Friday. Somebody smashed the side access panel real good.

Seen a 330 that had damage like that from bothsides. When it went in the drink they decided wrap cables in front of the counterweight and drag the bastard out. It wasn't pretty

Here's a good wrecked one I know you guys will enjoy. No operator error here though. This was a trucker fail. Guy had this

loaded to high on his trailer and slammed into a bridge with it. I'm assuming he had it on a flatbed as this is a small machine

and the bridge he hit is about 14ft high, but I didn't get to see it at the scene, just the aftermath. Bent the boom, knocked it

off the trailer and into the median, knocked the track off. Was a new machine, whoops!

Looks like it was customized for working around the corner

This is a tree stumper we had at the land clearing company I used to work for. I think the machine was a Kobelco but

I can't remember for sure.The stumper was run off its own motor in the box on the front. Neat little machine.

This one came to me via the inter-web on an e-mail, don't know where this was taken but it looks a little dangerous.

The guy must like living on the edge.

Got this Walsh owned unit the other day after he lifted a couple box culverts off my trailer, they did that quicker

than it took them to get the loader w/forks over there to lift the one pallet off my trailer.

I have stuck them before but never this bad. It took two days to dig her out with another excavator.

Nothing like walking off the road and sinking and doing everything you can to save it and still sinking none the less. Did it drown or is it still running

She is still digging after replacing some solenoids and a good bath.
