Cylinder Delivery Truck Almost Rolled Into River

Recommended Posts

  • Platinum Sponsor


Received a call from a local welding company that one of their trucks was almost tipping over into a river in the back of an loading dock with a heavy load of oxygen and acytalene cylinders. We responded with our 60 ton rotator and lifted the rear of the truck, and placed it back onto solid ground. Also, we used our HD ramp truck to winch the truck forward as the rotator picked and moved the truck forward.

The ramp truck is 33000gvw we didn't need much of a pull we just didnt want to put all the strain on the spin motor
and the reason the ramp was there was my father drives that truck everywhere that is his truck he takes home we
are always in our trucks because when were not we always need them .

Al that ramp has air brakes an maxies,if the pull gets harder we have chocks,also the tow bar helps, an last but not lease on soft ground you can set the bed to act as a spade,if things get worst then we roll her out an bring in a big boy ,but we always bring home the blueberrys. thanks BOB
