An Old Girl Still Getting It Done...


Recommended Posts

Had the chance to stop by an old friends yesterday in Scranton, Jim Morell's Towing. No such thing as a "quick" visit to Jimmy's but it's as much my fault as anybody...the place is just "rich" in towing history and the stories are second to none. Anyway, I took a couple shots of this unit that he put back in to service while one of his other wreckers is getting some rehab work done to it....

It's a 83 K30, 4wd w/ a 454 & 4 Spd.

It has a 10 ton Nomar twin line with a 3 stage add on wheel lift...

Jimmy is the second owner of the truck and he knows the history of it since new... She just flipped 50,000 miles yesterday on a call...and ready for more!

It's a great place to visit but you should go during the day light so you can get the "tour" of the history of the towing industry from a guy who's lived & worked through most of it!

That is a nice looking truck. That twin line NoMar was a good unit. If that ever came up for sale I would be interested. I know my Western Snowplow rep. would like it, he used to work at NoMar at the factory in Iowa when they were in business. We had the 3rd. 16 ton hydraulic that they built. We bought it brand new and mounted it an IH 1700 4x4.  It was a good wrecker and served us well.
