On January 7, 2010, a mechanic was underneath a front-end loader with the front forks raised approximately 5 ft in the air in order to reinstall the left hydraulic cylinder. The raised forks were not locked out or secured, and the right arm was holding up the forks. As the worker was crawling out from underneath the front-end loader, the front forks fell, pinning him underneath and killing him.
