Looks like an MMV from the video. An 11K telehandler (or 7K, if you have those tines attached), but as that boom extends out, the less it can carry without tipping. It looks pretty well extended, coming from across the other bridge like that. Enough to hold that car up, though! That was some excellent work by those Bees.

Seabees. Can Do.  

Another day, another job. Bases built. Infrastructure repaired. Damsels in distress assisted. Seabees. Can. Do.

A little appropriate lyrics, Ms Tyler...

I had the pleasure of spending some time with Seabees. Marines they are not. Wonderful people they are! My experience was that you could count on a Seabee to jump right in and give it his very best effort.

Their informal motto was "The difficult we do at once, the impossible takes a little longer."

LOL.  Naw.  Just have a Seabee among my close and continuing relatives.

Was thinking the same thing. If I was in the drivers seat it'd be pucker time. Max load at that angle/distance was a couple hundred pounds, max. And if the tipping point was hit, the telehandler driver was going with the car, just that quick.

We Build.   We Fight.

NAVY SEABEES.   CAN DO,  all over the World. 


so, why are the SeaBee Battalions located in Gulfport Miss and Port Hueneme Calif being cut and reduced every decade ??     What better way to take an E-1 recruit, and teach him good old fashioned construction skills in a military disciplined environment !   The number of SeaBee companies and battalions should be increased, not cut.

I'm sure the Sea Bee Pride is in overtime! Great job! Glad the good guys were nearby to do the fun stuff.

B: hes got the boom resting on the rail of the bridge near him. the rating of the machine depends on the distance from the front wheels. with the boom resting on the near "handrail" that changes things tremendously.

besides what does a wife and daughter weigh? i would say far less than that bunch can handle.

i believe that that happened just down the road from Hueneme. the car was teetering so bad that even the firemen were "really nervous" about the whole thing. it was looking really bad and they had called for equipment and here com a few of the lads in uniform with their big ugly machine.

or at least so it was said on the CBS evening news for the Los Angeles area.

We have a Sea Bee in our Family, In fact I enlisted him in 2001.  He is a SW1 up for CPO this year... I had to fight off a sub nuke classifier at MEPS to get my nephew his seat in SW A school in Gulfport.  Asshats...

I quite agree, it would turn out highly skilled, and useful people, but that would keep them off the food stamp rolls, and not voting Demoncrat. Which would be another good reason to create more SeaBees.

Once upon a time, while waiting on A School, worked with some Sea Bee's for a day or two. That's some hard working quality folks, and the spotlight is well deserved.
