Big rigs and construction equipment are the life blood of the working man (and woman). When they break down or experience problems, they can bring an entire job site to a standstill. What you need is someone who knows how to handle Heavy Duty Recovery and has the equipment to do the job right. Here are some of the pieces of hardware a good recovery company might use to help you out.
Big Rig Tow Truck
These are similar to what you see on the street towing cars, only on steroids. They are huge, and strong enough to pull your rig, bulldozer, backhoe or tractor out of trouble. They can help load it onto a flatbed or transport it to a repair facility.
Most tow trucks have winches. However, most are not strong enough to handle heavy equipment. When your rig that weighs upwards of 30,000 lbs and its on its side in a ditch, you are going to need the right winch setup to pull you out. These are serious workhorses, and need to be handled by someone who knows what they are doing. Misuse can be worse than no help at all.
If a winch isn’t enough to right your truck or equipment, your recovery company better be able to lift you out with a crane. These come in many shapes and sizes, and an experienced handler will be able to lift the load and reposition it, or lift your equipment onto a flatbed.
If you drive a big rig or heavy equipment for a living, you know a breakdown is bad for business. It delays your job and costs you money. Breakdowns come in several varieties, from engine troubles to tire issues to accidents to load shifts, and they can all ruin your day. When it does happen, and it inevitably will, reliable Heavy Duty Recovery will be there to help.
