  3. I use a set of " super duty " axle forks that are half round & fit the 450 & 550 front axles well.
  4. Well that's a loaded question. I'd say start by learning the towing industry. Not just from a broker's perspective but from our perspective. Nothing irritates me more than having to have a Towing 101 class when I'm a few weeks from renewal because the person in front of me doesn't know the difference between a wheel lift and a flat bed or what police towing entails and how it differs from "regular" towing. The best agents we've ever had either came from the towing industry previously or worked around it long enough to pick up on it. The fact that you're here says a lot about your view on this and I applaud you for it.
  5. Today
  6. There's so many good little spots in the downtown area. The waterfront restaurants are great and fill just about every cuisine imaginable. We usually go to Tir Na nog at least once over the weekend. The Pratt St Ale House is always a good choice and is usually the site of at least one show related event. We've found a couple little bars within a few blocks of the hotels that have good atmosphere, bartenders, and food. The ones off the top of my head are the Water Street tavern and Pete's Pour House, which I believe are almost next door to each other. A little ways away from the convention center is Sabatino's restaurant, which has great Italian food but it's quite a hike if you're staying at one of the hotels around the convention center. There's a ton of other places I can't think of off the top of my head but I'm sure I'll remember them in a few weeks when we're down there.
  7. Yesterday
  8. If you ever bend a axle tube on one using forks, I will call you "Sir" Derlyn Z from now on.. Lmao. Seriously Though, If you have a set of forks that work on it, Your good to go.
  9. I was wondering is this something you make and sell. We are looking for something like this for our heavy duty towing recovery business. You can email me at tmartin@rendelsjoliet.com
  10. It would be Bear to be logged in when someone accessed his computer or phone. Yeah, that would be me as i never log out. There isn't a reason to as I am the only person using my computer.. I have to say though I was taken a back when I saw Bear Murphy was active. I knew reaching back from beyond is something Bear would highly desire, but I didn't think he could pull it off. Then again, with help anything can make it appear as such. Maybe that person will add a reply. RIP Bear, you know we all Care!
  11. I have a odd set of forks for them I've forked the front axel I've grabbed the rear frame it's just according to where and how they are sitting I always go for the easiest way. But I've don't think you have to worry about bending the axel tube! Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  12. I'm fairly new to Med-Duty towing, and I was just wondering where most of you guys would pick on an F-550 4x4 from the front. Would you fork the axle, or do you usually break out the wheel grids, or is there a spot on the frame somewhere that's easy? I had a loaded F-550 dump truck the other day, and I just forked the axle, I later heard from somewhere that the axle tube could be bent on those, on certain occasions. Just wondering if that is legit or not. Thanks for your input!
  13. I get so many newer vehicles that are damage to the point the engine is dislodged. I hate calling a rollback for something I was always able to transport with a regular tow truck and dollies if needed. However, the risk of the engine falling out is not something I am willing to take when there is an alternative. Wow, the old guys would be furious to here me say this today. I assure you it is not something I uttered just a few years ago.
  14. Hello, I work for an insurance broker and I wanted to know what kind of services we could offer to our towing company clients that would help them out and separate our company from others?
  15. Ron! Thank you! Would love to know about the places where we not only can get amazing food, but has a fun atmosphere so we can get loud and laugh... and bonus if they know how to make green tea shots
  16. Devon Banks asked this question: Where are the best places to eat and drink in Baltimore? Any secret spots the locals love? We'll be adding a list here over the next week.
  17. Nice Truck, that will be our next upgrade when we are ready.
  18. Started to think about where to put stuff on this truck. I want to keep the most used stuff on the passenger side to keep us out of traffic as much as possible. Here is the start on one of the compartments.
  19. Norristown police arrest Chester County man for carjacking in Upper Merion NORRISTOWN — A Chester County man is awaiting arraignment on multiple charges after he allegedly highjacked a car in Upper Merion, assaulted Norristown police officers, including a K9, and damaged several vehicles during a police chase through Norristown. Jacob E. Reck was arrested and charged with Robbery of a Motor Vehicle and related offenses after an incident that began in Upper Merion Tuesday night and ended in Norristown. Around 6:20 p.m., Upper Merion Police Department received multiple calls regarding a vehicle accident and disturbance on North Henderson Road at the intersection of Prince Frederick Street in the King of Prussia section of the township, according to police. At about the same time another call was received from the parking lot of the Midas Auto Repair, 172 East Dekalb Pike in King of Prussia. The subsequent investigation revealed that a man had assaulted the operator of a 1tow truck at the Midas and attempted to steal the truck. He ended up stealing a 2010 Ford Explorer that was being unloaded from the tow truck instead. The man then drove southbound on DeKalb Pike and then northbound on North Henderson Road. At the intersection of Prince Frederick Street traffic was stopped for a red light. The driver failed to stop in time and the car he was driving rear-ended the vehicles that were stopped and waiting for the light to turn green. He then veered off the road and hit a tree across from the Kinder Care at 211 North Henderson. One of the vehicles that was struck was a 2010 Toyota. The driver was delivering food for a pizza restaurant and pulled into the driveway of the Kinder Care to wait for the police. As he was waiting Reck allegedly approached him. then assaulted him before pulling him from the Toyota. He then drove off in the Toyota and from the scene toward DeKalb Pike. According to the report, a few moments later the Toyota crossed the Dannehower Bridge into Norristown. Several Norristown police officers quickly located the vehicle driving at a high rate of speed on Astor Street and noticed that it had fresh damage. The vehicle failed to stop for police and drove through a parking lot and onto the train tracks and then onto Elm Street. In the course of doing so, it struck two additional vehicles before coming to a stop. Reck allegedly jumped from the Toyota and attempted to steal a third vehicle before he was taken into custody by the Norristown police. While being taken into custody Reck allegedly assaulted several officers and the police K-9. Reck was transported to Paoli Hospital for minor injuries sustained during the vehicle accidents and his arrest. One Norristown police officer and the driver of the Toyota were also taken to the hospital for minor injuries. Resource Link
  20. A 40-year-old man is expected to face criminal charges after police believe he pointed a gun at a tow truck driver repossessing a vehicle in Greeley. About 1:34 a.m. Sunday, police responded to a report of the man pointing the gun at the driver in the 1800 block of 10th Avenue. The driver of the vehicle that was being towed fled the scene as police arrived, according to police. The vehicle was later found unoccupied nearby. The tow truck driver, a 23-year-old man, was repossessing the vehicle when the suspect, identified by police as Rasean Ector, left the home and pointed the gun at the driver, according to police. Police later located Ector and developed probably cause to arrest him on suspicion of felony menacing. He was booked into the Weld County Jail on suspicion of menacing, criminal extortion and a warrant, according to online records maintained by the Weld County Sheriff’s Office. As of Tuesday evening, Ector has been released from the jail. The Weld District Attorney’s Office has a deadline of 3:30 p.m. Oct. 27 to file formal charges in this case. Resource Link
  21. Tow truck driver killed while delivering tractor in Ontelaunee Twp. ONTELAUNEE TWP., Pa. – A tow truck driver was killed Tuesday night while delivering a tractor at Berman Freightliner on Ashley Way in Ontelaunee Township, Berks County. Police say 46-year-old Jose Tirado Zamot of Reading was dropping off the tractor part of a tractor-trailer at Berman. When he lowered the tow truck, the tractor reportedly started to roll on him. Sgt. Sean Showalter with Northern Berks Regional Police Department said there is no surveillance video in the area, so "we can only assume" how the incident happened. Showalter said it appeared that Zamot tried to run after the truck or put something under the wheel to stop it from rolling. However, the tractor must have caught his arm or glove and pulled him under, killing him, the sergeant said. Resource Link

  23. It's got a nice wheel base for a 16 ton with the extended cab & tunnel box. As long as the engine holds up it will make a nice unit!
  24. For what it's worth the Chevron's will sit pretty good even without the legs. This is my little honey badger pulling out a 24kish traffic truck that was buried at all 4 corners in sand. I had 2 wheel chocks on the back axle and she didn't move an inch once they bit.
