MD Recovery On Rack Body Truck

Got a call for a tank delivery truck stuck in the mud. I thought it was going for the F550 but realized different when I pulled on scene...

So the 1st thing I had to say was "Do you realize it has rained steady for 2 days which melted all the snow?" This was obviously a bad idea...

When they got this truck, I saw that winch & thought they would get themselves in trouble with that. They winched themselves forward and just got deeper...

Backed in & set up on an exposed root that I figured would help me from sinking. 2 part line to the heavy crossmember of the lift gate assembly.

Pulled it to me & out of the deep holes. Truck was lame & still couldn't move. So I pulled ahead and set my block on a tree to get it closer. Then strait lined it to the edge if the driveway.

"Nice. Is this the same guy from last year?"

 

No...LoL Funny you brought that up. He left this past summer....I told the fleet manager that we were going to have a little party for him - felt it was the least we could do for all of his support! Then yesterday my son told me he got fired from his new job which was driving a gas truck for a company closer to his home. So we can only hope he comes back to here.... 🤣
