  1. One more question if you guys don’t mind. I repacked the bearings, but only the OUTSIDE set of bearings. The inside set has a grease fitting. I assume pumping grease into that fitting with a grease gun until clean grease flows out is all I need to do?
  2. Yeah, I’m new to this wrecker with dollies stuff. Always had a rollback before. Sometimes I miss it.
  3. Thanks for the feedback. I’m the same when it comes to dollies- in town, no interstates, 15 miles or so max. I put a pretty good load on them today, 4,000 lb vehicle, seven miles, in a torrential downpour. Glad to say that they did fine. Thanks again for your input, D.
  4. Hi, all. I bought a used self loader that came with an old set of Collins dollies. I replaced a few parts, tires, repacked bearings, and they’re as good as new (I think). My only unknown is flex and camber, so I put my personal vehicle up on them to test them out. (I added air to the tires after this photo was taken). When it comes to the flex of the aluminum cross bars and the angle/camber of the tires, does this picture look right? Thank you for your feedback, D.
  5. Thank you for this well written analysis. I could never understand working the 'traffic-side' of a tow. I've heard guys say "I want to see what's coming" but that is simply an incorrect way to view the situation. By the time you see distracted-motorist-on-cell-phone coming across the white line at 70 mph there's no chance you'll be able to get out of harms way. When I ran a flatbed, I worked the controls from the passenger side of the truck on EVERY tow just, even in a driveway or parking lot, so that it became a habit to use that side of the truck (unless there was a reason I was not able to such as an obstruction etc on that side). I got rid of the flatbed. Too many close call for me. I use an autoloader now and I get the vehicle lifted, the customer in the cab of my truck as quick as possible, and slow-roll to the next exit or turn-out. Thanks again for the helpful commentary. D.
  6. Hi, has anyone here used Tow Adz for lead generation on cash calls? It seems like there are reviews for just about everything you can buy in life, but I'm having a hard time finding any reviews on this from customers (not 'testimonials'). They are offering new customers 40 phone calls for $99. Even if only a quarter of these turn into legitimate leads its still less than $3 per call. That sounds good, but I'd like to hear from some others who may have used them. Thank you!
