What Were They Thinking?

Forklifting a Forklift With a Forklift = Dangerous!

I'm sure some of you have seen this video by now. It shows a forklift operator trying to put a large parcel in a shipping truck. But he can't quite push the parcel fully into the truck. So what does he do? Asks a buddy for help.

The buddy drives another forklift up behind him...and lifts HIS forklift into the truck!

Here's the video:

And a Yahoo News article on it: A Forklift Gets a Lift...from a Forklift - Yahoo! News

Yes, it's funny to watch. But you might think, "That looks really dangerous."

Because it is. It's dangerously unsafe to lift a forklift with another forklift. But even worse--the original forklift driver is sitting IN the forklift while it's lifted! And there are people close by!

This could have gone very bad, very fast. Cromer Material Handling advises ALL our customers never to allow such activities with your trucks. Keep your workers safe.
