    Unbelievable that the boom was lowered in stead of just dropping the cable, DUH!

    Do these guys not know how to bum in.
    We were installing some car park machines at the Harvard Medical center back in the early 90's a crane operator from the local hall kept his boom fully extended at all times even when there was no reason to have it stretched out. our picks were not all that heavy, but anytime I've operated a crane I didn't extend the boom all the way unless I needed the height so I couldn't understand his reason
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use http://kbs.justoldtrucks.com/

    Not sure who was dumber: The crane operator, or the guy shooting video with his camera turned the wrong way.

    also, the maximum point of stability is on a line from the king pin through the corner support jack
