WRECKERS YARD: Toppled Tanker puts New Holland tractor on its nose

A contractor in south west Wales was driving along a main road and swerved to miss an oncoming car.

The fully-loaded Hi-Spec tanker mounted the kerb and flipped right over.

The drawbar has a swivel-hitch designed to not tip the tractor over on its side, but unfortunately this time it worked against the driver, as you can see.

Tom Finucane sent in this shot, adding:

“We think he must have needed some new pants after this one.

“It’s just one of the interesting things one sees during a season of silage harvest.”

Nice work, but how did they get it down?
