    Concrete bag lift fail. Working contraption + showoff = fail.

    Some how they missed the riggers class about jib needs to extend beyond farthest protrusion. End of GIF shows his disbelief. He weighs enough but either too short a ladder or street level too high. And his single sheave's no mechanical advantage other than change of direction.
    Some how they missed the riggers class alright.
    Amazes me how many get photos recorded, you know, intended for the boss. Not the surprise ending, no raise for you!
