  2. Once again, fantastic efforts by the emergency response staff. Hope the driver recovers.
  3. Looks like an awesome product. Do you have distribution in Australia? Also, what is the expected battery life? Best of luck with sales.
  4. That was one Vicious collision. I am praying for a speedy recovery for both drivers.
  5. Yesterday
  6. This is a great video to show the dangers tow operator experience when they go into flash waters unprepared and untrained. No vehicle is worth risking injury, long-termed illness or death over. And to the motoring public, the simple ditty of, "Turn around don't drown", are words to live by, but there's always someone who thinks they can simply drive into shallow water and make a crossing without danger ... and THAT includes tow truck operators. The attached video is a good forensic view or the dangers associated with water incidents. R
  7. Njss ... sorry, those were cars I transported back in the 1990s and 35mm pics are long gone. I remember I was more scared at the Lamborghini's $355,000 price tag than I was at loading the car. Especially true with Countach's, Diablo's and Mura's, I remember free-spooling cable and pulling the V-bridle under the cars to back-hook their rear suspensions. On some cars, there was so much under-splash plastic that made hooking-up difficult, and, it's really low profile called for lots of ramping. Because I didn't have loop straps at the time, I took 2-inch sections of fire hose and slid them over the J-hooks so to pad the hooks and not leave shank-marks in the suspension. The Mangusta is similar to the Pantera with a big block Ford. Nowadays, a vintage, pristine Countach can fetch $800,000 and Hagerty's values the Mangusta in the $300,000 range. Here are two pictures taken from the Internet of a Countach and Mangusta. R. De Tomaso Mangusta Lamborghini Countach

  10. Was a fun job aside from being done during storm Isaias(reason for limited pictures). Local area was hit hard. Everything worked out well
  11. One of our trucks has the slide in mounts in the top of the tunnel box. Those are the best we have used. For those without a tunnel box these are the next best option. I'll have to see if we should take advantage of the upgrade offer.
  12. That's a horrendous crash there, is there any update on the tow truck drivers condition? Thought be with all involved, this seems to be happening more instead of less.
  13. Thanks. Unsure of the correct pronunciation, but, know they have an enormous fleet
  14. A man is in critical condition after the truck he was driving veered off the road on Interstate 69 Friday morning and hit a wrecker on the side of the highway. A 30-year-old man is in critical condition after he drifted off Interstate 69 in the box truck he was driving and struck a tow truck parked on the side of the road. William Alexander Benavides remained at Kingwood Hospital Friday afternoon. Department of Public Safety Sgt. Erik Burse said Benavides was north on Interstate 69 when he stuck the back of a Saddle Creek Towing and Recovery tow truck. Once on scene, firefighters with the Porter Fire Department worked 30 minutes to free Benavides from the heavily damaged box truck. The incident is still under investigation. RESOURCE LINK On FB Brenda Richardson stated: "Just before 2 am a Saddle Creek Towing Company truck was stopped on the inside shoulder of I-69 between Northpark and FM 1314 after just clearing a scene with his overhead lights on. An auto parts box truck for unknown reason ran off the inside lane onto the shoulder and struck the wrecker. The wrecker driver who was in the driver’s seat was transported to Kingwood Hospital in stable condition. The box truck driver was entrapped. Porter Fire Department worked close to 30 minutes to free him. He was transported to Kingwood Hospital by MCHD in critical condition. DPS is investigating the crash."
  15. News Video Link: https://fox4kc.com/video/kc-woman-injured-in-hit-and-run-involving-tow-truck/5742578/ KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A hit-and-run in Kansas City has left one woman injured, traumatized and without a car, while authorities look for the other driver.
  16. The way I would do this with a carrier, after an official power representative gave the all clear of no electrical hazzards, and based on your pics, is with my truck pointed opposite direction of the GMC, I'd side pull off the end of my deck,still in the locks the rear of the truck into the street slightly, and away from the Durango gently, once on the ground, load Durango onto the deck, then reposition with the wheel lift to grab the rear of the truck, sling the rear, tie off the steering wheel and good to go.
