A covered transporter  ......specifically designed to discreetly  move high value sports cars .....infact this one was built for McLaren sports cars .   The one piece  low approach ramp hinges up hydraulically and becomes the rear door ....the sliding side doors giving easy access to get in and out of the car and also strap down the wheels...

the suspension on the truck is all on air  giving a very smooth ride and adjustable ride height

These are a couple of clever devices to move disabled or locked up vehicles in underground or multistorey car parks   .....they can either be motorised or electric driven

The tracked one can also be used on uneven ground or shingle driveways where it is impossible to use wheel skates  they are Very manouverable 20180926_153706.thumb.jpg.244de035cbc4ae02194253fb75309390.jpg

 

This is a small part of the range of towing attachments available  for the latest range of European cabover trucks and low ground clearance bus and coaches 20180926_153807.thumb.jpg.66596defa83483fabab8d7776df59237.jpg

 

This is a very simple and useful device which bolts on the wheel studs for side pulling   especially when there is no substantial  frameworkto catch hold of

A few pictures of the recovery  demonstrations ...20180926_094641_001.thumb.jpg.14ed7ed2f2d8c476fb1dcf863c05779a.jpg

 

Demonstrating the winching capabilities of this  4x4  Unimog    very popular for severe off road work  electricity line work ...rough terrain forestry  .....mountain rescue etc  fitted with 2 boom winches .....a centre drag winch....and front mounted winch ....the rear hydraulic spades can penetrate deep into the ground...we were pulling a 5 ton truck sideways  effortlessly ....we had the wheels chocked front and rear and the spades chocked so as not to damage the tarmac surface of the car park we were on

we used a light duty snatcher fitted with the top boom and twin winches to upright a large box van ....

We rigged one winch down low through a snatch block directly to the axle   .....the other through 3 snatch blocks effecting a two strop pull over the top of the box 

An easy upright ...
