Bobs newly developed Sign Maintenance Escalator caused a big stir on it's first deployment.

     How do you even do that?  It is not a dump trailer, so how?

The difference between genius and stupidity is that only genius has limits. Enough said. Good Luck, Rick

    I don't know, a pot hole of that size would have swallowed the truck.  I would love to see the back story there.

So would I. 

 

I couldn't stand it, had to do a search:

 

Seems it was a dump trailer with a hydraulic system "malfunction" or operator error.  My question is how do you miss your truck rocking when your dump trailer is up 30 some feet in the air?  Even sitting still, you can feel it when it dumps.  I've been there.

Hydraulic cylinder dangling doesn't make it a dump trailer?  Going to have to tell the neighbor he wasted his money buying one with hydraulics. lol  I didn't see that he drug the frame with the truck when I first saw this picture.

no caption but I really wonder how the trailer kept from tipping over while moving?

I've seen those trailers "fall" over when raised sitting still on level concrete with no wind.....
