Today we got the crane stuck, at 8:30 in the morning, trying to get to a tree in a tight spot, down a hill and around a corner at a little hobby farm. We discovered that the gravel drive was built over the old manure pile, and they didn’t scrape the ground before they dropped loose gravel on it. Six and a half hours later, we got the crane turned around and dragged back up the hill. All in all, a miserable day of dragging mats and pulling and slipping and sliding around.

Edit: I don’t know why the photo is sideways, it was right on my phone. Admins, can you straighten it somehow? 071D9E87-A555-454A-9386-0EBFD9603487.jpeg

Yowzers! From what I can see, the house is intact so they could’ve had it worse :)
Any more pics of that job?
