Won't Find This In Any 12 Ton Operator's Manual...

Had a call for a Propane Truck stuck in the snow but didn't have any other info. I knew the development was tight so I decided to take a chance with my medium duty. When I got on scene & found it loaded w/ 65% or so...and buried...I thought well go figure...

I had to work close & balance the boom to keep the truck sitting right. I ran a 2 parted line around the frame for lift and a second line to a tree and back to the front pull hook for forward progress...

Worked both of them together & she walked it right out. Used my floor mat to keep from scratching the paint with my rigging...

Once out, the lame duck still wouldn't move so I ran a line around the front and drug the steer axle around...

Checked it over for damage, everything was ok. The homeowner was going to need some landscaping but otherwise...Off to the next job.

Nice rigging to even out the pull @ the boom tip & still be producing optimum pull on the propane truck where needed.
