Fail. Sling crash.

Recommended Posts

That's a spreader bar diffrent beast all together.

 

Used to distribute weight out evenly with a heavy lift.

Hard to be sure but possibly the sling going under the train broke? Again hard to be sure but looks like way sling was hooked up that only single loop, not doubled up. Anyway, I'll bet the crane rocked a little bit losing that amount of weight so quickly!

Back to the original Visio, looked to me like the pick was just too big, why did you go from pretty concervative lifts to what looked to be a huge section of trunk?

Just watched the video again. Was the same sling used for taking the heavy timber down that was used for lowering the smaller branches??

There looked to be around 50% of the branches that were badly unbalanced and spun round causing a bit of a shock load to the sling. Could this be a factor??

Fan of chains personally on cranes
