How is it possible that someone has such a beautiful ( not to mention expensive ) piece of equipment like that and this is what they do with it??? I am totally disgusted by every single thing that was done here right down to the cops that not only let this happen  but, probably pressured them to do it...  A PRIME example of why the majority of this industry is not ready for standardization and first responder status.... The day this took place was a sad day for professional and responsible operators everywhere...


There are Tow Truck Drivers, Then There is Towing and Recovery operators...... Which one are you??🤨

Those packers carry most of their weight in the rear. If that thing was loaded and packed tight ( obviously was ) it is probably in the ball park of 55 - 65,000 lbs.... on a fully extended under reach thats good for what? 15 - 17,000 lbs extended... Just a mildly educated guess. Back in my heavy towing days these types of trucks were on my hook regularly. From the front and properly hooked of course. They are heavy and lumpy as hell even empty.

When it comes to that get er' done mentality by most operators, especially where a towers actions are simply dangerous and illegal ... I remember my dad saying, "Learn when to say NO!" Most cops don't know what those things' weigh and it's their focus to get the street or intersection cleared even if the little engine that could is grossly overloaded. Good solution Eric.     R.
