This operator hurtled down the road keen to get on with the job. Carrying too much pace into the turn forced the track-rod end to snap causing the driver to lose control.

A few belts from a heavy hammer soon straightened out the rim and spraying continued as normal, just lucky that the wheel didn’t dig into the ground and force the unit to topple over!
