A Southway Crane & Rigging crane tips over on a house near Atlanta, GA

A Southway Crane & Rigging All Terrain Liebherr crane tipped over when crews were removing a giant oak tree from a backyard.

Clean up efforts are getting started after the 3-axle crane tipped over and came crashing down onto a DeKalb County, Georgia family’s home.

When using a crane for tree work it can be dangerous because of the odd shapes and uncertain weight of trees. It is recommended to always over estimate the weight of any tree to ensure the job is performed safely.
