Received a call from one of our customers to respond to Metro Ford in Raynham for their CAT paver that the track came off and was particially in the roadway. Apparantly, the operator needed to turn around in order to make another pass so decided to use the roadway. We responded with our NRC rotator to lift the paver from the roadway and put it onto our Landoll trailer then hauled it to our Freetown location. We needed to use a cut off saw in order to free the bound up track. The next day, the customer came with certified funds so we offloaded the paver from our Landoll and placed it on one of their trailers.

Different kind of recovery but the Big Wheel crew dominates as always, nice work guys and pics. Like the idea of using the boom winch to help load on the landoll. Thanks for sharing.

nice to see everybody working together,great job

 

xcessiveforce said:

question....I see the 60t century rigged by itself when lifting off of the trailer did you try to pick with just that one and could not and than added the second tator or am I getting ahead of myself.....what does it weigh...good job as always...... I keep asking for one of them saws (I think they are called k-12)for my truck, but they tell me it belongs in our support veh.... oh well.....l.o.l

 

@Big Wheel Recovery said:

Jorge that was done in stages as the pictures show, we set the new Pete first then the second Pete tater.The new Pete probably could have lifted it but why abuse the equipment Eric knows from the owner what the weight was I did not get involved in that particular job,I'll find that out for you a little later. thanks BOB

 

Oh by the way every heavy in our fleet has a cut off saw, it;s a must, that's how we feel about it ,thanks again

@Eric Fouquette said:

YEP to heavy for one tater off the side that weighed about 49,000 my side came up so i went to plan B other tater for safety that is why i need a heaveir tater or if i had the D rings on the back side of the rotater i could have hooked my loader to the tater but i like the two taters much safer that is the way i like to do things . thanks eric

xcessiveforce said:

thanks Bob and Eric I also prefer 2 tators instead of pushing the 1. Now I will start nagging again for my saw...

as always great job....

 

@Eric Fouquette said:

Jorge that saw is a must we have 3 of them they are in all the taters we use them all the time and you can charge for them so you use it about 10 times and its free to own they run about 1200 each they have a water hook up so you can cut concrete we also have diamond blade for the real tuff stuff , get them to buy you one it makes money and sence . thanks eric

I hate paving spreads! They always make a mess of the deck pain in the rears to load and never parked in a good spot for loading.

 

@Recovery Inc said:

You know I love your posts and I hate them at the same time. Here in Iraq the internet is so slow and it opens 4 or your pictures before they all "x" out and all I want to do is see them all without having to force them to open. Keep them coming because I will be home very soon and will be very thankful for Cable Internet! Ofcourse as always outstanding work and I will have to stop by to drool on your pavement over your trucks and equipment.

After my second look I don't know what's worse? Getting that nasty oily messy paver snot and rocks all over that pretty yellow trailer or having to suck the fumes from cutting that track off with the cut off saw.

As always that yellow Paccar iron makes a great showing in great hands.

IF your wash boy ever gets tired of them Massachusetts winters I would be glad to put him to work here in sunny CA.

Donald our wash boy hits the ground running every day an con't wate to see what we have in store for him each day,pretty much like the rest of our crew. Just having fun in Fretown, BOB
