63 tons of "America's ace in the hole!"

We retrieved this one loaded with minimal load loss.
Used three straps around trailer to upright.
Once we got it on its wheels, the winching began.

Held the front-up in the air to keep from dragging the fuel tanks

Easy as 1,2,3. We were helped by Kirk Trucking w/ their 50 ton B&B

Well done guys! But I gotta ask. What does your county or state road dept. Say about spading in the blacktop. Ours has a stroke, sometimes and sometimes they don't care!!BGAMZW55.jpgcard.jpg

Thumbs up on that one! Holding the load up is a job in itself while winching out!

nice job guys, garry ours is usually pretty cool about the spanding because most of us in this area of va seldom rip up the roadway, but you have a few guys who dont understand and try to plow up three lanes of interstate...dot around here usually brings out a couple of bags of cold patch to most truck wrecks just in case but they bill the trucking company unless its just plain tower negligence...they know when you need the heavy pull around here.

The DOH are really easy going about spade use.. as long as there is no X-treme damage done. I think the extended weight {126000lbs} fee the coal truckers pay goes toward road repair......Paul

Very nice recovery and teamwork guys, thanks for sharing.

Nice recovery guys, that was a very heavy one good job, the DOT here in Iowa never says anything to me if I use the spades or spikes, but it really doesn't do much damage, just a few little dents. be safe out there. joefromjd

That was a good little job there especially with the limited space you had.
