    I'd say he was danged efficient at doing his job! He got the truck unloaded and himself back on the dock in a matter of seconds. Give that man a raise!

    For topical application, only. Not to be taken internally or used in com-
    bination with other drugs or alcohol, except as directed by your shaman.
    Do not operate heavy equipment, unless you actually know how to.

    Why didn't he have the lifting sling around the pipes and hooked to the crane, then he would have been able to cut the wires successfully without any drama, or is that just plain logical thinking?

    No way they were pipes. That's solid bars to tip a truck like that.

    Plain lucky.

    the truck bed could be hinged on the frame from both sides with release levers to release either side. Note the wheels as the bed tips. A lot of the medium sized half lorries in the Middle east are set up that way some even have manual or powered hydraulic jack cylinders to cause them to tip so they can be used as side dump trucks for delivering sand or gravel
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
    When I have to paint I use KBS products

    Frank, hard to argue when you are right. I first watched this early in this morning on my phone. Just watched it on my computer with the 43 inch TV for a monitor. 100% hinged box. Young kid and they knew what was going to happen. The guys on the top of the screen were watching and waiting. Heartless bastards.
