Wreckers Yard: Claas goes belly up in ice

Driving in icy conditions can be tricky, as John Healey, the driver of this Claas teleporter quickly found out. Coming back down the lane from a job, the machine lost grip and slipped down the hill into the ditch.


WY: Claas

The first try at getting it out ended a badly when the chain broke resulting in the telehandler ending up on its on its roof.

Thankfully, when they did manage to get it out there wasn’t too much damage.
