The crane uses it outrggers to imnsert crane mats under the wheels

6. February 2018

Last week we reported on how a 500 tonne All Terrain crane had slipped off the edge of a small road in rural Scotland as the verge - weakened by heavy rain - collapsed under the weight of the crane. See Collapsed verge

On Friday the Mellex group was called and managed to mobilise a team and recover the crane over the weekend without further damage to it. In fact it was able to drive away under its own steam.

The team managed to achieve all this without closing the road for more than a few brief sessions while they were unloading materials and equipment. SOURCE:
