Breaking the Rules and Breaking the Equipment

The photo and video will say the thousand words.

My last post talked about washout trays and the need for them to be emptied into the onsite skip.

With safety being a very important aspect of our lives on site, actions like this need to be taken seriously.

The video shows a washout tray being tipped into a skip. On a site with 100 + pours this constant abuse will eventually cause damage to the manitou. 

While I have been told of machines with cracks appearing on the boom or the rotator being damaged, the photo below shows damage to a manitou tyne from lifting overweight bins and constant banging. The new attachment sits in the distance. It was a $4k fix and this is on a tier 1 builder’s site!

You may or may not be surprised of how often this happening on your site.
