What’s the Problem?
The suit was filed by the minor children of Joshua Hill, who fell into a XR430 Hog Wood Chipper in 2018 while working for American Walnut Co., according to the Associated Press.
Hill was stationed in a small shed above the Hog Wood Chipper, which pulverizes wood with steel hammers, grates and saw blades, on March 12, 2018. At quitting time around 5 p.m. that day, Hill’s co-workers discovered the wood chipper running but Hill nowhere in sight. The men turned off the machine and searched for Hill, eventually finding his remains inside the wood chipper.
The lawsuit alleges that the XR430 Hog Wood Chipper lacked an automatic shut-off, emergency stop button and other safety mechanisms to protect workers. It also alleges that no warning signs or instructions were included with the chipper.
