Dump Truck in Operation

Sometimes the load nearly dumps you.

As this articulated dump truck operator was readying to haul away a full load, the incline of the rock pile he stopped on got the better of him and quickly threw the bed onto its side. The operator likely received quite the surprise once the bed landed. On impact it gives the cab a pretty decent shake.

Fortunately, this crew doesn’t blink, freeing the bed from its tipped load and righting it in just a couple of minutes.
