On its side

Post #1 by Hammer man » Sat Dec 03, 2011 10:40 pm

This happend in the summer.The bolt that holds the A frame sheared 50 ft before it rolled.The haul road was quite bumpy so our speeds were low.It went over a bump,rolled to the right,rolled to the left,then rolled to the right until it tipped over.No damage apart from a new bolt.

The rear tyre is bald on purpose.The rear left,top in the pic,is a retread,the idea being that the rear tyres wont srcub out.The bottom,left hand tyre with tread is a spare,as the other bald tyre blew out.I was on another A40E the other week with the same tyres on the rear,& i had one blow out.We have had loads of those tyres blow,so i dont think we will be having them again.

Yeah those half bald tyres are ok if you running around in a yard all day, ive seen those used on back axle and the back prop off trying to stop scrub out on the tyres, dont see many 2 axle bendys any more.

Dredging up an old thread.
