Truck crane overturn

Truck crane overturn

8 October 2015 Email this article

A four axle truck crane working on a site in Singapore overturned on Monday afternoon possibly due to one of the outriggers being short rigged. It also looks as though the crane might have been light on counterweight.

The crane, a four axle XCMG truck crane, was helping dismantle steelwork as part of the demolition of a Hawker Centre on Changi Road. The boom came to rest on one of the walls of the structure. Thankfully no one was hurt in the incident. An inspector from the Ministry of Manpower is investigating the incident.
