Received a call from Adam from Murphy's Towing to assist him in a loaded TT roll over on a narrow side road in Kingston, MA directly underneath the high tension power lines that run fron the Cape Cod Nuclear Plant, to Southern Massachusetts. He asked us to respond with two rotators and our bobcat to help dig out the trailer. And the rotators to provide lift where as the power lines were overhead. Our crew worked with the crew from Murphy's Towing to dig out the access material out of the trailer, then we set up both rotators, keeping the booms low, and swung the truck over back onto its wheels. After the recovery, Murphy's Towing towed the truck back to their yard.

Ed if you look at picture 7 you will see the wire rope through the snatch block to the rear of the casauility,the front rotator is pulling forward an up an the rear rotator is ajusting the unit forward or back. We always try to keep close to the foward rotator they tend to go over better,besides I think the guys were trying to hit Eric with a dust cloud. thanks again BOB
