I just don't understand how management can let this happen. It's not the first time I've seen this . The mentality is if it fits it ships . I don't know if you can see the associate behind the sheetrock,but if that load kicks out it's all over for homer . They seem to be very safety conscience when indoors, but outside I've seen some crazy things .

:laughing: Putting the hurt on that truck.... I recently had to load 30 sheets of slatwall at Menards, but didn't attempt any ignorant sh!t like that... supervised as 2 associates loaded them into my truck.

What was the plan? The Truck back up to the cart then the pile plop? :blink:

Would It have not been easier to fork lift the pile out to the truck then load it 1 bundle at a time? Either way that shiny truck had a white knuckle ride ahead of him ...I Hope he wasn't going far!

How the eff did they even get it to that point?

Love seeing people destroy their half tons by over loading them.

We do this all the time except into the dump trailer and we use the flat carts. Fork lift comes around and gets as close as he can then shifts to the side to get it on the bed, put a flat cart under the other side to hold it so he can swing around and push it in. Takes about 2 mins with a good operator to load a whole bunk of wood

I'm trying to figure that out, too. May this: load was dropped into the bed, but it was leaning badly as the forks were pulled out...so now the forks are holding it back up...but what next?....brace it with a cart so they can go help the next person... (Bet the guy disappears on break.)

I dont even like plywood or osb for sheathing, I'd rather use 1x12's like they used to, if it was still practical.
