  1. 1982 Peterbilt 359 with 300" c/a Air-ride and 750 Holmes on the back end. That old truck floated down the road. Seriously though I've never had a Hino buy my Freightliners are superior in ride of my International.
  2. George, Towbook has a free trial of a month I think. (Then $49 a month.) My son set it all up in a couple of days and the Towbook people have been very attentive to any problems we had. Holly's Towing Dispatch might be an alternative for you although I have no idea what she charges. http://hollystowingdispatch.com/ That way you can concentrate on towing and let the dispatch service talk to the overseas dispatchers lining up work for you.
  3. Congratulations on 50 years! I remember my father and I traveled down from Indiana to try and buy a big old tri-axle heavy duty truck you had for sale, probably 35-40 years ago. We didn't get together on the truck but looking at all your trucks and swapping stories between Irvin my father was awesome. I always liked the orange and white trucks and looked for them anytime we traveled through Kentucky.
  4. Wes, FYI- The Myrtle Beach and Evansville links don't work. Thought you would want to know.
  5. Answering my own question or updating everyone that replied: I spoke with Fattmerchant and Square about it. We spoke with Towbook at Atlantic City and the told us about they were integrating with Square. We had been using smaller handheld machines from PNC Bank branded Clover. When we called them to see what our obligations were prior to cancelling the service and they advised we could buy more of the handhelds but no other solution they were aware of. Then one of the office ladies ran across the "Clover App" that works on all of our company issued ipads for each driver. This has been a great solution for us so far although we will likely migrate to square with integration to Towbook when that happens. Thanks for all the great replies everyone and Randy I have one of those old back and forth swipers on the shelf in the back room just in case we have another y2k or the like.
  6. If you have 4 of the "green" Wreck Master skates you can flip them over and set the edge of your flatbed on them making a smooth transition or ramp for the go-jacks. We almost always use the skates and save the go-jacks for cars parked in tight spots that have to be removed carefully. We keep them on on our small tow trucks in go-hack racks with nice covers over them. The tow truck responds to assist the carrier driver and there is 2 of them on scene to help move the car that way. PB Blaster, antifreeze, cooking oil, lard etc can always work in a pinch too- it just doesn't look real professional to the customer if they are watching.
  7. They add those for use at racetracks where a vehicle such as a sprint car needs to be lifted completely off the ground. The cars only weigh 1200 lbs or so- I wouldn't try to lift more than that with the one on your truck.
  8. Gods Speed to you Dale! Our condolences to your family and friends.
  9. Such a shame... thoughts and prayers to the family and friends

  12. I like the new board look and function. No complaints here. Merry Christmas to you all!
  13. We have had every motor club (except aaa) take advantage of our generosity and eagerness to help people in need in similar ways just like that. They will even get the supervisor on the line who PROMISES to pay the extra amount but when you submit it they send you the regular fee and claim nobody can authorize the amount in which you had agreed upon. Sorry it happened to you but that seems to be the way it goes. ALSO customers in need will call every company that will respond to them and not bother to cancel the in route companies when the first one shows up. This is an incredible waste of resources and time.
