Topic Originally Created by wheelertow in September of 2007:


got a call from the trucking company owner to use 'big rotator thing' to recover
his truck that was leaning real bad and about to roll over. His truck was 1 1/2 hour drive
away but he didn't want to use any of the local companies. So off i went. When I arrived
the driver didn't know what to do. He said maybe back it out. The winery owner was their
and said that we would need to bucket the grapes out or the truck would roll over when we moved it.
So I told them that this is what I do and that I would get it all out without and damage.
So I had to make it look good. ED














sorry no progress pictures they wanted the driveway opened

can you run all 4 winches at the same time under full power?

with my sp's only having duel stage pump if you use the side winches along with the main's they run at half speed/ power

wheelertow said:
