When Stuff Happens, It Happens Fast!

Nobody was hurt; no equipment was hurt; but it was close!

Our guy dug all around this big leaning white oak in preparation for pushing it over, but as it went over a branch caught the back of the bucket and nearly wreaked havoc on the backhoe. If the branch had hit the cab it would have broken all the windows and showered the operator with glass. This tree was rotten through and through, and I think that allowed the branch to tear off. Otherwise, it would have pulled the backhoe into the hole.
