Transpower, Maintenance

Mutually exclusive terms.

Having installed thousands of joints just like the one that failed I'll put this down to piss poor workmanship.

Being from an electrical maintenance background myself, also being well aware of how solid and homogeneous these connections become after correctly applied explosive or hydraulic crimping, I cannot but agree.

One wonders the last time the joint in question had a preventative maintenance visual or other check. Like the infamous $5.00 'D' shackle, probably 40 years ago when it was installed.
