I wonder what the recovery bill came too.

I wouldn't want to have to pay that bill, looks like they did a decent job of trying to contain any spills into the water.

And the tractor owner didn't learn a thing. Part of the issue is driving around with the loader arms all the way up raising the center of gravity making it more likely to tip over on uneven ground. And then get a second tractor to pull it home with the loader arms up all the way just like what caused the original accident.

That's how we have to legally drive with a loader tractor on the road in most Europe. Loader up and high for visibility purposes and safety when approaching crosswalks, crossings or roundabouts. Technically he should have the tines pointed down but that's a really old loader which won't dump very much.

That tiny loader on that big and heavy of the tractor is not an issue at all and didn't cause the accident. The guy just had a mishap and drive out of the road. The rest is history. It's says in the description of the video.

Interesting high tech wrecker.

Nice recovery job. Too bad they didn't just lift it on to a flatbed or trailer, to get it "home" for repair.
