  5. We were called one of our customers to pick up a limo that was on it's way out of Atlantic City when it overheated. I towed it back to a shop that deals exclusively with limos, a nice 45 mile ride. As it turns out, one of the passengers was a guy I know who's a state police dispatcher and also tows for a company about 20 miles away from us. I guess it really is a small world.

    Replacement switches for in-cab controls?

    Any wrecker parts supplier should be able to get you the correct switch. Depending on which controls you have for the Vulcan, it's just the regular switch used in a million different in-cab controls... or there are a few years with the black control handle that has a circuit board inside, I think those are a solder-in style switch?

    Replacement switches for in-cab controls?

    I'm having a hard time finding replacement switches for the pistol grip in-cab hand controls for Vulcan 810. I'm sure they're the same brand for all in cab wreckers but can't seem to find them.
  10. Towing company owner makes safety his mission after another driver hit on side of the road (WXYZ) - Dennis Brewer has been in the towing business for more than a half century. He has made it his mission to make sure drivers working on the side of the road are safe. He worked with the legislature on the Move Over Law. Drivers must move over a lane when first responders are on the shoulder. Brewer made sure tow truck drivers were part of that. It is a $500 fine. His driver, Eric Downs, was hit at 3 am Sunday on State Road. The impact was so hard, Downs went over the top of a car and landed behind it, but survived. It was a hit and run. The only description he could give is an older sedan, possibly coming from Saline. In May, Nader Chedhadi was killed while working on a school bus on the side of I-94 in Pittsfield Township. Michael Johnson was another driver killed ten years ago, also along I-94 - almost exactly on the opposite side of the freeway. Brewer says distracted drivers and those who don’t move over need to learn this is serious business. He just got back from Tennessee and a special ceremony for tow truck drivers killed within the last year. That number this year was 21. Two were from Michigan. Their names go onto a permanent memorial. RESOURCE LINK With Video

    Is that a factory wheel base on that truck in order to have x-cab and tunnel box?

    A Long Dolly Job..

    Pretty easy to believe! Just grab and go...don't mind that tug as you feel the transfer case kicking in. I realize a good number of modern AWD vehicles that are also available in FWD, they are biased towards the front wheels. They will often roll easily when loaded from the front. I've taken advantage of this to get them out of a tight spot in order to set dollies. Very short distance, very low speed. Literally feet or yards, maximum. Then they get the dollies! Richard

    Smile, really you're on candid camera!

    Looks like minor damage to me, I'd have showed up with a wheel lift, picked it up from the back, strapped and lit it and been gone in less than 3 minutes tops. Some people make easy jobs hard. Richard

    Three Wheel Action Challenger

    Ed, great advice and constructive criticism always welcome! I think that's what we're all here for, to share and learn. The only catch with it is we don't have a shop. We're strictly PPI which explains the limited tools on the truck for dealing with jobs like this. We're not even remotely hooked up with any body shops as our exposure to crashes are usually limited to hauling worthless abandoned cars off properties where the management is sick of looking at them. So, in this case where the owner wants it dropped at their home (daddy's home actually!) because he has hookups in the business, then that's where I drop it...for better or worse. Honestly at the end of a very long weekend shift I was happy to be rid of it! Richard

    Another Week- Another Disaster

    I know where Wenham is. Right next to Hamilton, I believe. Thank you for your service. Today they were turning on gas service to houses that were not damaged and are inhabitable. There are a lot of people who won't have gas for a while. So today, I renewed my driver's license. It is one of those Federal approved Real IDs, which will allow me to fly on a plane, if I ever have the need to again. So after that, I went searching for lunch. Every place I tried, like Boston Market and Taco Bell, were closed. They had power, but no gas. There are three grocery stores in that area; 2 Stop & Shop stores and a Market Basket. If any of those stores had generators, I'll bet they were idle. Most generators today are powered by natural gas. And there was no gas. If they powered them with propane, then they'd be okay. I hate to think about all of the meat, frozen food, milk, and ice cream that ended up in a dumpster.
  26. Tow truck driver injured in hit-and-run; Pittsfield Twp. police looking for suspect PITTSFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. - A tow truck driver was injured in a hit-and-run Sunday morning after assisting a disabled vehicle in Pittsfield Township, police said. The 37-year-old male, a Pittsfield Township resident, was returning to his tow truck after assisting the vehicle on northbound State Road when he was struck and fell to the ground, according to investigators. The worker was wearing a reflective safety vest and the tow truck's emergency lights were activated when he was hit, police said. The disabled vehicle had already left the scene. An uninvolved motorist came upon the tow truck driver and called 911, according to investigators. The man was transported to a local hospital where he was treated for serious, but non-life-threatening injuries. The vehicle that struck the worker was described as an older sedan with possible damage to the front end, passengers side and windshield. Investigators said it may have been from the Saline area. Anyone who witnessed the crash or may have information on the suspect is asked to contact Pittsfield Police at 734-822-4911. An investigation is ongoing. RESOURCE LINK
