I had the pleasure of operating one of these bad boys, and I'll tell you what those fuckers are seriously powerful. Them hydraulics don't stop...for the most part.
At 50 bucks a pay check thats gonna take a while to pay off
I guess those warning labels about not operating heavy machinery are true.
That bridge will have to be replaced. The driver was told not to go on the interstate, but he decided he would anyway to save time. Why was he not to run the interstate? Because the bridges are too low for the track hoe to go under.
$150+ million to replace bridge.
Where the hell did you come up with that dollar figure??? Must be a Democrat...closer to $1 million to replace entire bridge...
It's not like they haul ass either. It was probably like "Look at this...he's not really...man he's getting close...he might actually...there's no way...why is he still going...why doesn't he stop..."
do i get the job senor? eef no, mi wife and seex ninos, and two uncles weel not be able to aford a two bedroom apartmente
50 bucks a paycheck? Those guys make $125.00 an hour
Yes netjem drivers who haul heavy machinery make mad coin. I used to do it. But the sad thing is that guys are coming from south of the border, cant even read the bridge clearance sign and are willing to work for 6.75 an hour. I used to manage the trucking division of a machinery moving company, and trust me people say drivers are a dime a dozen and that anybody can do it. Well try to find a good one that is worth a damn to hire
look....i do both haul them and operate them, this dumb fucker should have known what to do, if you drive long enough you can tell if a bridge is too short. then again some dumb fucker may have just loaded the excavator wrong with the boom too far up. and we do not make 125 an hour its more like 25 to 50 depending on if its a scale job or not. this guy was just fucking stupid. and i also agree with the guy above about the border jumpers. let em do the shit jobs.
i bet i know what the first thing he thought was....................fired.
Thier you go see what happens when a white boss tries to cut his workforce in half. He fired all the border jumpers and his dumb ass tried to drive the truck himself. Note dumb ass white boss. Let the border jumpers do all the shit jobs. I agree with with both of the guys above.
lets see... your thinkin' a wet back was driving this truck? well lets see.. Commercial Drivers License he would need to have a current health card and an oversize load permit that is routed before the trip. I don't think so! The guy that owns this truck wouldn't let a dip shit mexican drive it, impossible! You people out there that see these truck drivers and play it like they are fools are mostly wrong. Ya quite a few are dipshits, but 110% you will get fucked with and you have to have your papers in order. Or your out! My guess is that nothing other than the magic of David Copperfield made this happen, there is no other explanation. OH Ya.. I hate mexicans and niggers, in general too. have a nice day....
they will give anyone a lic.
This happened near Hays,KS. Apparently the boom was not chained down and came up for some reason, and the driver did not have the proper wide load permits to be hauling anyway.
