Mind the Overhang!

Crane treads overhanging flatbed
Crane treads overhanging flatbed

Spotted this one in a rest stop along I-84. I suppose it’s perfectly safe, but those anchoring hooks really don’t inspire much confidence, even if the only way you could jounce that crane sideways would involve flipping the flatbed. Right?

Yes, it was hanging over the other side just as far.

Come to think of it, the tractor that towed this assembly wasn’t present. Perhaps someone discovered / was informed it really isn’t a Good Idea / legal to haul an excavator at 65 mph in this configuration?

At least the driver didn’t do that
