why would a 40 ton rotator be on a twin steer kw?? this seems like a typo on the 1140 we have two 1075s on twin steers and they are a pain in the a** to tow with with the turning radius so why would u want this on such a light rotator??

Interesting lights on the grill, what are they for? Nice looking wrecker.

The lights are used on fire trucks. They spin and put out some pretty intense light. Made to be attention getters. Very popular in the fire industry
Not a typo, this unit is equipped with an 1140. The benefit of it being a twin steer is, extra breaking, extra front axle weight and better overall balance.
Thanks for your interest.

oh sure...someone challenges your use for the truck and you run out and find things to tow and flip over trucks to make it look like its used....lol! Beautiful truck man interested in what the wheel base is. Also how do you measure W/B for a D/S rig? What weights are your (tare) weight on the steers and drives. Do you also use a front bumper weight? It takes a lot of weight to pick up and tow a pump truck down the road...or some big brass!!!
