    FAIL!
    But lucky to get out that quick too
    I thought i drove forklift bad, but never broken one or crashed it!
    Back end did fall through drain man hole cover after it collapsed (forklift had about 3T weight!!


    Like it says simple maths!

    LoL, it seems he was having one of those lazy moments that I'm sure we've all had, you know the one where, say you've got five glasses to take from the kitchen to the diner, but you're not going back for just one, you can carry all five.. wait.. apparently you can't

    I used to design and install racking systems. There was something VERY wrong with that racking. I've seen fully loaded racking (stacked to capacity with diesel engines) lose 4 uprights due to a runaway forktruck and stay fully stable.

    What is cross posting? Is it when you get angry and post it on a forum?
