A rare 2 trucker.

Recommended Posts

I had a call today for a new Suburban that had rolled backwards into a market swail, I have been here many times before, honey hole I guess.

 The 40 gallon plastic gas tank was sitting on the sharp rock retaining wall so winching forward was not an option, needed lift. We brought 2 trucks & my son with me. We positioned the trucks at 45 degrees to the rear wheels, boomed out, used WreckMaster K straps in a basket wrapped through the rear wheels around the wheel hub, snatch blocks then terminating the wire rope at the boom. I had my son in the drivers seat with the engine running holding the brakes while we winched the rear up allowing the gas tank to rise off the rock wall, once level my son eased off the brakes allowing the Suburban to roll forward slowly as we kept winching until the rear wheels were back on solid ground. Recovery was done very slowly with all 3 of us working very smoothly together, which was key.  All good, no damage in or out, they drove off under their own power.
