    Don't they have some kind of pressure regulators on the hydraulics and limit switches? Glad the guy made it into the cab before it blew. Messy Bidness!

    Fuel truck explodes while being uprighted. Looks like the explosion was directed correctly through the top of the tanker.

    Looks like they may have had a balancing line tied to the tree(s) on the other side of the road as the trees move as the operator bounces the truck over. Lucky it did blow at the hatch but wonder where the spark came from. Did a balance cable snap and spark off the hatch? 1-800-SWDE/SWGIT

    I think it possibly was static electricity transfer.

    I can think of better ways to TIP a LOAD.

    Wonder why they didn't have an end loader to push or better still an excavator with a safe reach.

    Agreed Toma, If his brain was working ...his judgement was not. A normal truckie would never go that close to a sound ledge let alone that one. LOL
