Hi guys

once again an example of why careful planning and judgement is necessary when recovering vehicles. Photos from one of our mines in Zambia.

Cheers
John

Can you believe it - even after seeing the video about the guy getting a smack by the high lift jack, I sit here this evening with a lekker groot knop op my kop.
My jack klapped me this afternoon when trying to lift my boat trailer.... :confused: :rolling:
Damn, these things can be dangerous if you not careful!
