The outriggers were fully extended. The lifting capacity charts in the crane's cab stated the maximum allowable lift was approximately 24,000 lb. Due to the overload the main boom collapsed and the load was dropped, causing approximately $40,000 worth of damage to the crane. No employees were injured.
