25 Ton Dump riding the ditch

Recommended Posts

I had a call from the local Sheriffs Office this morning for a tandem axle dump loaded with sand figuring 25 ton in the ditch. We responded with a 1981 KW W900A/Holmes 750 & 2001 F550 4x4/Chevron 408. After surveying the scene we positioned the trucks diagonally to the dump, rigged low from the tailboard of the 750 to the front pin with 4 lines to the load, rigging the Chevron with a high line from the boom to a chain wrapped over the corner of the box for high leverage to keep the truck from tipping any further & another low from the tailboard to the drivers rear outboard wheel simply for forward pull as there was no other place to rig being as the dump box was sitting directly on the truck frame. County closed that section of the road diverting all through traffic. Dump running in neutral & she came out without incident. About 1 hour on scene.
