  3. Water Been There Done That...

    In this particular situation, enough cable could be extended to winch from the standing water. I think that vehicle had a center mounted recovery loop for attachment? Instead of going to him, winch him to you?
  4. Backup water seperator for 6.7

    I have to drain the water out of the bottom of the separator/filter that has the drain valve knob on it. Since we are having all this rain I'm not surprised about the water problem. My truck is a 2011 F650 Extended Cab with the Cummins / Allison I have 80K on it now.

    Ron, make it a large, Thanks.
  8. Our thoughts and prayers to the family and friends.
  9. Here we complain about our safety on the road due to drunk drivers, and now this moron gets behind the wheel and kills someone. What an idiot. He deserves the maximum sentence the law can hand down and permanent driving restrictions.
  10. One more senseless tragedy. Another life lost and many lives affected. It’s been illegal to brink and drive for over 50 years and yet people still do it. I feel so bad for the tow truck drivers family and friends. Thoughts and prayers.
  11. I'm looking to replace winch cables on my Medium-duty wrecker. What are everyone's thoughts on cable? We currently have steel core cables on the truck. The superb swagged sounds like it wraps nicer, and has a higher wll, but is about double the price.

  14. A tow truck driver was killed Saturday after being hit by a drunk driver in Cypress, police said. The Harris County Sheriff's Office said that the victim was putting a boat into the back of his flatbed on Grand Parkway near Bridgeland Creek Parkway around midnight when a man in a Toyota veered off the road and hit the flatbed.

  16. Tow Insurance

    I have had good luck with Berkshire Hathaway so far. SUPER reasonable rates. only complaint is it takes them forever to make policy changes, such as add a new truck, ECT.

  21. Re: The Future of Towing

    I believe that towing, the physical action of towing will decrease, but roadside service to replace modules will blossom. Tomorrow's tow operator will have to be tech savvy. The tow man or tow woman of tomorrow will be highly trained and highly skilled. They will use a lap top more than a snatch block. They will have to operate a scanner and be able to replace modules on a casualty. Thirty years ago, if I told a technician that one day a car will not have a distributor or spark plug wires what would they have thought?
  22. Tow truck driver charged in fatal crash (IN)

    Tragic, just tragic. I hope the families of those injured and those of the deceased get justice.
  23. Water Been There Done That...

    Many of my recoveries are in water ,never once have we allowed a truck to go into water.Most times you cant see under surface.Waders are standard equipment in our toolbox.

    Unimogs have air pressurized axles for deep water. I'm guessing a lot of military vehicles do that as well
