  1. Sorry it moved those last two picks out of order on me & won't allow me to edit it....I love technology.....
  2. The driver made his way through a very tight driveway to fill the propane tank of a customer...and incidentally found the homeowner's septic tank which is never good... You can see where the wrecker was sitting. One look at the driveway and I knew I would never fit back to where he was... If I had known, I would of taken the smaller truck... 70% on.... It didn't even look like a driveway! Not sure if the trees are supposed to be on the inside of the truck? Got back as far as I could and pulled rope from there... I needed 1 high line to minimize the resistance & another pulling the unit from the rear out of the hole. All that rigging for literally 20 seconds of recovery. Once I rocked the truck to the side, it popped right out of the hole like planned.... Other then the obvious fragrance of nature...no damage to the truck. The septic tank? Not so much... Overall, a tough situation. the driver had no way of knowing the tank was there with the customer's "Italian Yard".... It's a summer home and they probably don't deliver to it often. if it were me, I would back in to the site so it wouldn't happen but that's me...
  3. Eddie grabbed this one this morning.... Wrapped up in a few minutes...then a beauty shot...LoL
  4. Eddie had this one the other day. Using their "sling" attachment so it was manageable... looks heavy but actually a 4200 w/ a VT365 & it was empty....felt like a typical 1 ton pick up on the back....
  5. I don't know about you guys...But I hate towing buses... These actually aren't too bad but I guess I just like to hear myself bitch...LoL This was the second one this week for a coolant leak. I wish I could do them from the rear but they lean terribly... this is 1 I did a few weeks ago and I didn't have a choice (obviously). But their driveway entrance is tough and it's hard enough gowing from the front.
  6. Randall it's been all regular customers that we have done and nobody has said anything negative about it. I feel better...not invincible...LoL, but better when I'm working with it.
  7. Just another example of using our sign board to move traffic over on a HD job out on the interstate.... I'd like to see some of the bigger players proceed like this to help make it an "acceptable policy" to more than just me...
  8. That looks Great! of course I'm partial to old Fords though...LoL My Body Shop manager is putting together a 91' for a dump truck. He just put a 96 front clip on it (not a fan of the brick nose). Found it with 18 k original miles.
  9. They are pretty neat looking trucks. I found one a few years ago but it was priced out of my enjoyment range....
  10. Sorry...I'd swear that I put this in "LD Towing"....Old age setting in I guess....LoL
  11. Just a couple of jobs from this week...
  12. Jeez 3 rollovers this weekend...all with clean ups too! This one tumble rolled in a private community w/ 25 mph speed limits... She said she swerved because a Goffer ran across the road... They cleaned up the roadway and told the Officer we would be back in the daylight to do a proper clean up.... Destroyed a new Journey...Customer called me to ask if it was driveable? I asked weren't you in it & she said yes....No...No it's not driveable...
  13. Sure you have permission to use the pics. I was saying the other day on FB that I want to start the precedent in our area and hopefully the others will follow in some form or another. We built our crash vehicle with this in mind but there are other alternatives as well. We use it on accident scenes as well... Sometimes it looks like the message is cut in half but you don't see that with your eyes...only happens in photographs.
