My first year driving my box truck pulled an electric meter off my customer's house also. I was going up a very steep driveway, which blocked my vision of the low telephone wire connected below the power cable connected to the house. It went fine under it going forward. But when I backed the truck up to turn around...the truck grabbed it and pulled it right off the house, killing the power.Mytee spinner buckled under vacuum while jet bar was spinning and smacked up a stone floor, chipped it. My fault for using a mytee product.
Employee didnt know about the rear swing an Isuzu NPR has because of how sharp the turning radius is, he was parked close to the house and the truck tore the electrical meter off the home
Old rotovac powerwand completely shredded a seam in a relatively new carpet, that was a funny one... I was brand new using that dumbass tool on every job.
If I had been in my right mind at the moment, I would've called the telephone and power company, telling them the telephone company hooked it up too low. but In panic mode I called and payed to get it fixed. I was later told that UPS trucks pull it off all the time, and the stupid telephone company just hooks it right back in the same spot every time.
