12 Ton Transformation from 2011

Recommended Posts

Topic created by SouthernStarTowing in July of 2011:

 

A while back i was thinking on purchasing a new unit to back up my 16 ton unit. With the way the economy is i decided to upgrade an older unit. I contacted Tom Chitwood and Bill Bottoms and told them my idea and was told not a problem. We sent the truck back to the big house and bill is now working his magic. Bill has been keeping me posted on the progress of the upgrade and i wanted to share with you. We are very excited and cannot wait for completion. Please enjoy and tell me what you think.

Finished and back home working!! A big Thanks to Bill Bottoms and his crew for a fine job!

Also thanks to Tom Chitwood for his help in this project.

The truck turned out better than i ever imagined. The unit is a 12 ton but is now built like a 16 ton.
