  2. We had to rescue this lady the other day who decided a soaking wet farm field was the best place to turn around. Not 500 feet further down the road is an intersection with a nice hard packed dirt spot to turn around, but I guess she couldn't wait that long. Nice easy pull back to solid ground.
  3. Man he must have loved you so much he decided to give you more work!
  4. I don't think we'll every get away from taking passengers, especially with the push from this industry to minimize on scene time while on highways. We have to do something with the people who were in the car when it broke down, and I'm not about to wait 30 minutes on the side of a 4 lane highway waiting for Uber to arrive. That being said, I always stand next to the passenger door and physically point out the grab bars to customers. I don't help them up or touch them, but it's hard for them to face plant when I'm telling them where to step and put their hands.
  5. One of our shops we tow for called for a '68 Cadillac DeVille that was dead in a driveway. Pulled up to a dead lead sled that was slammed on the ground. No owner around so I played with the controller for the air ride suspension and got it to come up to load it. I actually left the front pretty close to the ground to get the tail to clear the bed, then raised it so the front bumper wouldn't scrape the ground. 4 cluster straps and away we went to the repair shop, where it fired right up like nothing was wrong with it. Would have helped if it ran at the house. someotherplace said: It needs a new owner...it just wanted to escape. I love '68 Caddys. Have owned 2 '68 Coupes myself. Richard
  6. Topic Originally Created on Tow411 in February of 2016: Picked up this convertible Mustang from one of our customers. It was wedged in his shed pretty tight, but I managed to get it out. Dollies only because his driveway is just about as straight of a drop off I've ever seen and I didn't want to detach the front spoiler. Brought it to the shop and got it running for a happy customer. Edit, I found the video of me squeezing it out.
  7. I can't wait to see this truck when you finish it
  8. Take the plates off on the wheel lift and leave them off, and when you wash the truck hose out the holes where the claw cylinders are.
  9. Never did I think I'd live to see the day team Ed's went Miller. Congratulations on that monster of a truck, it's got some might big shoes to fill!
  10. Our new 16 series LCG has proven to be very versatile. From low cars to heavy utility truck, recoveries to touch a truck, it hasn't failed us yet. It's one of those trucks you can take out in the morning and not have to worry about switching trucks until your done for the day, no matter what call comes in.
  11. You can lift limos sky high without worrying about dragging the bumper. Hard to tell here but the rear tires were just over the center of my axle and I still had about a foot clearance on the front
  12. Lol you're a braver man then me, I'd have dropped those dollies as soon as I had access to the back and grabbed it from the rear. Then again I'm from Jersey where holding up traffic is a justifiable reason for homicide to some people
  13. At least you had enough truck to handle both vehicles. Good looking truck
  14. Of course they always are facing the wrong way when you can't get them out of park. How far did you tow it on the dollies?
  15. I've been in this industry since the day I was born, 29 years ago. I've been on my own in the truck for 11 years so far.
