    Power inverter opinion

    I really liked the Power Drive 4000 watt I had in my old cab-over, it ran almost everything I had. It also has bluetooth control but I never needed it. I would recommend direct writing it to the batteries because we initially had it off of the power post in the cab but it didn't draw enough and would set off the low voltage alarm. Once we direct wired it with the proper size cables it worked really well.
  2. I would have liked to see some PPE on the tow driver as well. Glad to see there are cones and someone out there helping to direct traffic at least.
  3. Good to hear, speedy recovery!

    Buying my first heavy

    I've been driving a truck with a Miller DTU on it and I think it is a very versatile unit for many things. Sure, you can't use it for the full recovery jobs but that's why we have other trucks as well. The company I work for is getting a second DTU to add to the fleet at the moment. We have a Rotator, 3 HD trucks, a tractor with a ramp deck trailer, and the 1, (soon to be 2 DTU's). We have the truck for the job but most of the tractor only tows, especially swaps or distance runs go to the DTU or the smaller of the HD trucks.
  5. Still trying to find out more info on who the operator is, due to knowing many of the operators in the area, but I'm hoping for a speedy recovery.

    Fairing Straps

    We use these with a chain link welded to the adjustment side so that we can hook our 1 or 2 inch straps to them. Since they are adjustable, you could add a 1x4 to run the height of the faring for added stability. Edit: for some reason it is not letting me post the picture. The clamps are a Sheet Metal Welding Locking Pliers 8". Basically a vice grip with a flattened set of tips.
  7. Hello Everyone, 

    TTO_UT is back! I'm alive and well. I took a hiatus from the towing industry to go to college but I'm glad to be back in. They say that people either like towing or they dont, once they experience it. I'm here to say that I got the bug and it never left.

     

    When I was a member on here before, I was working for a company in Salt Lake, Utah, doing light and medium duty for AAA. I have now put on my big boy pants and am working for a company that runs heavies and a tater. I'm really enjoying the new challenges and am open for input from our awesome community.

     

    Stay safe out there!
