    Oopsie, Iveco fell over

    Don't know whose this is, but struggling to understand how, unless they got out of truck and it rolled back.

    There's a wheel mark on the left heading into the tree ... roll downhill, go up the bank, hit tree, fall over?

    Ouch, you can see where it rolled up the embankment on the left and hit the tree.
    Any idea how they up righted it?

    I can understand exactly how it happened - recently did it on an old tractor.
    Brakes failed, roll back, wheel up the bank, fall over, get off, change underwear.....
    Don't Ivecos have brake problems?

    yes, absolutely , That will be it I'd assume driver would have switched off and left it in gear, but relying on handbrake only , they will roll back on a flat driveway .

    The auto handbrake adjuster only works on leading shoe, and barely then if at all.

    Mystery solved!!

    yep, they also flex like rail cars and have the stability of a drunk crack addict.

    what they do is droop the front axle well, the rear... not so much. and generally ,while you're going forwards this isnt such a bad thing it could be better but its a reasonable compromise for getting rear axle weight bearing up. Until you go backwards OR clip the back wheel up without passing the front end over first and squaring up.

    while its probably not the greatest example (although the extremity of the example makes it easy to see)of it if you look at the way a forklift works the front axle is solid and the rear has very limited articulation. if you hit a 2 inch object with one wheel on the front axle it lifts the whole machine over 2 inches. if you do the same on the rear axle as its articulated you only lift the machine half the height. Throw some weight on the tines and lift it up a bit and it doesnt take much to put the moment of intertia above the stability of the machine when you hit the front wheel.

    throw that in reverse and thats what the iveco setup does when you back down into an object, it goes all reliant robin.
