  1. This Class was held in Philly and the topic was created on Tow411 in October of 2015: Some pictures and videos of the class in philly. Should be noted, the tanker is loaded..... and it's not the easiest tanker to up-right, as it's not a big fat petroleum tanker. We had a small LD wrecker on the steer axle of tractor only to assist in up-right. In all reality we could have used a cushion there also. dry van body is loaded, and sidewall damage a bit If you missed out on any of the 2015 factory class programs, we are scheduling three for 2016, possibly a few more. Vermont, Philly, and Indy are presently on tap. Dates will hopefully be announced at Baltimore tow show The current Factory team line up is: Howard "scooby" Eagan, Jeff Martin, Dale McLaughlin. and helping us out as a field instructor from time to time is Brendan Kilkenny. air bag/cushion training for both the recovery and rescue that is second to none within the professions the most qualified instructors having extensive verifiable field experience Hvywreckerw900 said: We need another Syracuse or Buffalo class. @Matjackman
  2. "If you don't have Matjack airbags, can your airbag be slammed into place with a sledge hammer?" I'll answer that for you... no. Matjack is Simply the Best, used by Rescue and Recovery folks that actually do the job. I have inserted mine this way many times and they never let me Down !! Most salesman are given a truck and some equipment and off they go. Most they have lifted is a car at a demo. With Matjack there is no Better support team !!! John Sweezy Jr ,Howard Eagan (scooby), Dale McLaughlin, Jeff Martin, Bruce Allen everyone will help you at the drop of a hat !!!
  3. As my friend Nick Jones says, a couple of the best rotator operators on the planet will be teaching this class, Jeff Martin and Bruce Campbell. Jae's towing in Ohio is hosting this event. This class is for all brand rotators. I've attended it, great stuff. I personally recommend you get signed up @ WreckMaster.com and get your rooms booked, i anticipate this selling out fast.
  4. As of recent, i think both of us thought the days where over, but here we are. Nothing has been more enjoyable than teaching with this guy, Jeff Martin We at times argue like brothers over class logistics and stuff, but you folks see the end result. Add the other folks and we have a great time. Nobody, I'd rather have by my side. Love ya brother
  5. Topic Originally Created on Tow411 in 2010: found this while searching. seemed interesting. surely they look to be newer IH chassis on the green units
  6. Those twin Hondas holding up Chuck? Look like the dam boats got more horsepower then your wrecker fleet!!! LMAO
  7. Topic Originally Created in March of 2011: We received this call. 5/0 wanted me to turn around, pic this baby up, and back it up 2.5 miles to the off-ramp. I told them that all I really need to do, was pick it up and put some tires back on and we can drive it off. They then asked me if I needed to call the local wrecker company and get a few more wreckers.. they'll close the roadway for I can get turned around. I choose not to disclose where this was at, it was a distance away from us. I tell this story only to cement my belief that sometimes the task at hand is so simple and require little effort with a very cheap investment. This has nothing to do with the local towing company not being able to handle this job, knowing them, I'm confident that they where very capable of handling this in a professional manner. My point is that sometimes other agencies, not knowing the logistics of our job, look at it as a big deal/event. We make ourselves as a profession/operators look better when we handle things with ease and w/o the fanfare.. sometimes with just a little air. wheels came off a coach bus, partially in slow lane.. somewhere in the Continental USA Little too much work for my prettyboy self to even thinking of picking this with a wrecker I think you all know where this is going..... lol One can turn their big horse around, and do all that work I guess, but to be honest, I'm charging the same as if u got your tator to do it...LOL Ron Pullen said: If I was not in Grand Jury the parade trucks would NOT have to turn around to do this job LOL Mattvt said: Is there anything YOU can't do with a Bag??? Scooby said: yeah.. grade tests.. print out and then mail certificates for courses...lol in a timely fashion..... SLovett said: Speaking of tests, do know when I'll be getting my results back from the O'hare class!!! Scooby said: see there's proof. they where all done and enveloped. I will check it out and get back with you I appreciate your patience
