In the middle of the fields, a worker from a competing company accidentally drove his excavator off the embankment and into the ditch. This happened on a narrow path. With the help of a Van Schie crane, they lifted the machine out of the water and put it back on solid ground.

The operator came out of it without a scratch. To perform the lifting operation with a mobile telecrane, Van Schie attached a platform of steel panels against the embankment to achieve the required pressure of 3 tons per square meter.

For this purpose, three truckloads of dragline mats were delivered, and 2 x 700 meters of track mats were needed to reach the accident site. Everything was arranged within a day. That same afternoon, the damaged excavator was transported to the dealer.
