A telescopic crawler crane working on a wind farm just outside of Bad Wünnenberg, German, overturned earlier this week while setting up or dismantling.
The incident occurred on Tuesday afternoon after the crane, a Liebherr LTR 1100, owned by rental company Neeb Krane, tipped forward while unloading and installing its tracks. The crane was later rescued by other two cranes and taken away to assess the damage. No one was injured in the incident.
