    What are you using for toolbox lighting??

    I currently use a light switch looking battery light, and it sucks... just takes once to forget to shut it off. Just do the work up front and wire some in.

    how to convince the boss

    I am with your boss. Snatch block has the best ROI. For me to buy a sidepuller, I need an extendable boom like the Trebron unit has.

  7. Our new flatbed arrived last week. We had In the Ditch boxes installed, and they are great. But, there is no lights installed. I was thinking about some different options and figured I would see what you guys are using. I am thinking of going with something battery powered, so we don't have to run wiring. Some of my older trucks lights that use push pin switches never seem to work well anyway.

    2018 Midwest Tow Show Mason Ohio Roll Call

    Forecast calls for 70's during the day and 50's in the evening. Leave the rain coat at home and bring a jacket it's going to be a nice one for sure. However are friends from down south are going to freeze. To us it's Like A/C...
  21. Does anyone know what happened to all the training videos that were available on David Lamberts Website following his death. The website is gone now and the link is bad... Really would like to access those again. If anyone knows please reply as soon as possible. It would be tragic if they were lost forever.
  22. Guys....it is very interesting to read your comments and analysis regarding the constant amount of deaths and injuries of Tow workers at the roadside in the USA... We have the almost identical issues in the UK and most countries in Europe …...Whilst there is legislation is in place in various states and countries to Slow Down Move Over, when approaching incidents …. in a lot of cases this is proving difficult to enforce and costly to promote public awareness. Only when after the event and people have been killed or injured and in the courtroom the full force of the law is applied to the offenders and the penalties paid …. THAT IS TOO LATE for the victims and their loved ones !!! In the UK, there is a group of very dedicated Recovery operators headed up by Paul Anstee, Ben Johnson, Baz Cooper, Andy Lambert ( apologies to several others I have forgotten to name) and supported by the trade associations, currently running a vigorous campaign to raise public awareness and lobby the Government to introduce legislation to make it mandatory to Slowdown Move Over... However ….for the last 2 years the Government have been and are so pre occupied with Brexit and the impending divorce from Europe it is almost impossible to talk to anyone of any importance.....I could go on and blow hot air for hours over this !! What I am getting from the infinite wisdom of the other contributors of this thread …...Is the need for more in depth training and a consistent training syllabus for personnel, The need for good quality PPE to be worn at all times.....it is all very well having a big shiny truck with lots of flashing lights ….but ... being operated by a guy wearing a tee shirt shorts and trainers …..how many times have we all seen that ???? Hard Hats, High Visibility Reflective clothing, Protective Work Boots, Gloves etc is a MUST ….try going on most Job sites without them !! Gentlemen... you are absolutely correct in what you say and the sad thing is....it will take a major disaster to make the legislators pay attention then they will do it their way without proper consultation with the people at the sharp end... I utterly commend Dennis Brewer in his campaign and all the countless other people constantly working to improve safety and reduce injuries at the roadside ….even if it saves one life then it is all worthwhile !! John.

    Looks heavy as heck
  24. Heck, I'm surprised when they fail to report negligence. Oh you struck a semi wheel and tire on the freeway traveling 70 MPH and blew 3 tires? You say my driver scratched your bumper with the cable on your lower valance while he was loading your car? Well tell me what part of your bumper was left on the car after the collision first, lets start there!! People!!! Seems everywhere I turn I see this!
