American Hoist 9299 Collapsed
20 April 2018
From one of my followers in Iran, I got this incident report.
Two days ago at the Ardakan steel factory near Yazd in Iran, this old American Hoist 9299 Crane collapsed
The crane was outfitted with 240 feet of boom
The most likely cause of the incident was not using proper and standard pins for boom sections which resulted in the of braking of boom male hole and falling down of boom.
Lukily no one was injured during the incident
