Most New/modern big hiabs have and also have slew restrictors for working hard shoulder/live lane motorway. Daz
My crane has a restrictor that when over the cab will not let you lower the main arm down it's got sensors on the slew and electrickory in the control box

No Prolec Daz.

I've posted a comment in the electrocuted banksman thread about the hiab incident.

The problem was not only did they not see the wires, he was actually free on wheels running the varioguard out along the carriageway, missed them going forward but had the arm up higher to not drag the chains on the way back and BANG hit the middle of three cables.

The 132kva are at about 15 metres, my maximum height even with a bucket on gives me over 5 metres of clearance.

Got upgraded this last week

No radio, no heater, no cab, and it frikking snowed lads were pissing themselves, reckon they never seen me with so many layers on before.

The bloke who installed the plastic piles and the steel tubes inside them did a really good first class job.

He was not responsible for the non compacted backfill that subsequently got saturated and slipped but he got to sort it out

I've upload the video that the labourer took when I came down off the bench.
When he saw me put the seat belt on before I spragged it cross carriage he knew it was going to be educational and shouted for me to wait while he got the camera.
Doesn't look much but the problem was the high concrete wall at the bottom and the bridge pillar which made it very tight. My conclusion was in the worse case scenario I could lift it out from behind the wall with the duck.

I had a similar experience trenching in a water line for my wife's uncle last November with an open canopy 3 tonne John Deere, it was a decent machine but with that cold wind some proper shelter and a heater would of made it more enjoyable.

Went back to clear the surplus muck and finish off before lifting the mini digger back out.

Remembered to get a shot from the other side of the pillar to show just how tight it was.
Not the best quality, sorry.

Certainly looks tight Rob!
I love the way you used your feet on the levers to sprag her across, top class I hate any machines without track pedals, i'd prefer no levers at all. Having one hand on the tracking levers greatly reduces your ability in my opinion.

Thanks, a little trick I learned very quickly on the C@t 245 many moons ago, they have a single stick to direct travel so to sprag you had a foot on the travel pedal, a foot against the lever and both hands on levers ( not joysticks on the first 245 ).

It was a trick that came in very useful in the tunnel on the Atlas excavator as that was very similar. Left a few lads with their jaws on the floor first time they saw me do it, looked a bit like I was having a fit the biggest problem in a situation like I was with the mini it can all go wrong very quickly and you need your hands where they should be not where you need them to be.
