> wow what a mud puddle 

When I worked at a car dealer we had a numb skull truck driver delivering cars hit the only mud puddle in the supermarket parking lot across the street and high centered his car carrier on the street curb. Just could not listen to my directions and cautions. After he tore his truck (sunk into the mud now spinning the tires) and trailer up he finally got a brain and asked for help. It took a huge Hough front end loader to lift the trailer and pull the whole thing free. Would have been quite the tow bill if the dealership had not had one handy for plowing.

Every skidderman I have met has rolled one at least once. If he says not, he is either a liar or a newbie :D
A puddle that big in South Dakota is usually referred to as a lake.

my pap has only laid his one over onc in close to 40 yrs i gess that taught him  ;D
he siad my uncle laid the 240 over on every job that he did alot of skidding with it  ;D there were a few places he didnt but a lot that he did. hes not sure how many times he rolled it over. lost count i gess  ;D
my other pap rolled a loaner. there 440c was in the shop and the company gave them a 440d to use while they fixed their mistake and my pap flipped it. luckily they were working close to the sawmill they worked and they got a loader and flipped it back over put some oil in it and sent it back and the dealer dont no to this day  :D  :D bad part bout it was he busted four ribs :o
my goal is to keep the wheels on the ground were they belong  ;D

Hahaha, one time I was working in a warehouse for a cleaning supplies company.  They had this old forklift and were training me on it.  The neglected to tell me that the brakes didn't work.  Well, I had a 55 gallon drum of floor cleaner on the front and was driving towards the roll up door.  I hit the brakes and the momentum kept me moving.  Yep, crashed it right through the door, spilled the drum of cleaner everywhere!  The boss wasn't mad at all, he knew that old forklift wasn't in the greatest shape.....and it's neglect cost him $1200 to fix the door.  Memories.
Big or small, I take care of them all!

hmm dumb mistakes, I've never hurt an innocent skidder yet  ;D only because I've never been on one  :D :D

I have pulled a few other bonehead moves, worked for a guy hauling topsoil one summer, had to move the loader out of the way to back the truck past it, left the door of the loader hanging open and proceeded to back the truck past the loader, needless to say the mirror didn't clear the door of the loader  ::)

On Friday, one of our mechanics was working on a service truck with fold down step on the side. Forgot to fold up before going through the gate. Oooops.
