Platinum Sponsor BigWheelArchives Posted February 26, 2018 Platinum Sponsor Share Posted February 26, 2018 10-6-06 Received a call from Modern Towing to assist them in a car that went way off into the woods, down in a gulley. It was on a large pile of rocks. The car was sitting in an environmentally sensitive area, or watershed area. The local environmentalists didn't want the gas tank to be ripped open and dump fuel into the watershed. So we sent in our 60 ton rotator, lifted the vehicle straight up off of the rocks, spun it around, dropped it on his ramp truck, and he was good to go. I know someone will say something about the J hook the hook i brandnew and it is rated 4800 pounds the car weights 3000 pounds we pulled on double j hooks and they broke at 16500 pound so they are safe at 3000 pounds and we dont stand under any thing anyways just wanted to say something before other people said it thanks THIS IS FROM ERIC NOT BOB SEE YA IN THE DITCH that is to all you wreckmasters out there ,,, wreckmster said: The J hooks may be rated that much, But I doubt they are approved for overhead lifting. I believe they are grade 70. Just be careful. I know you guys know what you're doing and I'm not doubting that. But if something were to happen unexpectedly, that would be the first place OSHA looks.
