I've seen several trailers dropped that way. On two occasions the legs
went up through the bottom of the trailer. That one had to be unloaded by
hand - about 60,000 pounds of can goods.
The other was a tanker. When the legs sheared off the punctured the
bottom of the tank -- fortunately we didn't have to unload the 7,000 gal.
of #2 fuel by hand. :-(
No, I wasn't the driver of either one.
Ugh. It cost us $14,000 to clean up a spill from where one of our trucks
lost a fuel tank strap. I shudder to think how much the cleanup from that
spill was. They probably had to dig up half whatever state that was in and
truck it off to be decontaminated.

It happened about 45 years ago. The reaction was, O-MY-GOD, we lost
7,000 gal. fuel!!! Oh well at least it'll keep the dust down (the spill
was in a sand pit). Nobody thought about the environment back then.
Now about 10-12 years ago one of my drivers ran over a broken spring on
I93 just north of Boston. He spilled about 15gal. of fuel and it cost us
$6,000 to dig up and dispose of 6 barrels of road-side dirt. They dug it
up, trucked it to upstate N.Y., and buried it. ??
BTW if you ever get up to N.E. let me know. Dinner is on me.
BTW New F***ing York is NOT N.E.!!!
Yeah, that is funny. Anyone with experience would know that the proper
way to apply the BBQ sauce is with a HVLP spray system. Then, if the
drill speed is adjusted properly, as each piece of chicken cooks to
the proper point, it will become tender enough that it will be thrown
or "ejected" from the rotisserie. Wings first, then legs, etc. When
only the chicken carcass is left on the spit, bring out the lathe tools
and start shaving off that breast meat.
