Ole8212 said: That's pretty cool, never saw that before. I think if you look at a couple of the pictures it's pretty clear who's 40 ton they are comparing to. Thanks for posting. Voigt21 said: Nice. You can't outpull a Holmes. Thanks for posting. dsc said: Great information! Thanks for posting... michael212 said: The only thing the 1701 & 1801's lacked was reach. If they would have had the reach I believe things may have turned out differently in the Wrecker world.... Michael Myers 253.588.1757 ext 150 mttowing said: That makes me feel better about mine. After a three year restoration, I hope to see what it will do soon... gtowman said: nice.. thanx for posting. OconnelBodyandTowing said: That's a really cool post.
