These pics are of our old 79 KW that Dad built new in 79. It was a glider kit with a 350 Detroit and 13speed. Hubbard put the bed on new in Farmland, In. The truck payed for itself in the 1st 2 years of operation. It was a monster in it's time and still is. A competitor has the wrecker on a newer Freightliner. It is still a sling truck.

I run 2 now.  77 Peterbilt 359 with a "30 Ton" more like 40 with a Z-30 Zacklift, and a 94 Freightliner Classic with an "upsized 30 ton" that I would call a 50. The boom is longer and "sleeved, as well as having beefed up legs and crossbar. Nothing winches like an old Hubbard. Pulled out a loaded fuel semi the other night. Buried 16" deep in the median. 1 double line. No fuss. Per Wreckmaster data, it would have been around a 100K pull.
