Super heavy dump truck needs heavy recovery by Abrams
Kids love to roll down hills but when (incredibly) heavy dump trucks join the party, it is soon game over. When our heavy towing expert, John Allen arrived, the dump truck was lying on the passenger side, down a hill on a dirt road near Newmarket, ON.
While driving on a dirt road, the road gave way and the driver didn’t really have a chance. Nothing could stop the truck from rolling over to its side. John winched the dump truck back upright and dragged it away from the edge of the hill, saving it from rolling down any further.
Where other towing companies sometimes use 2 heavy wreckers to get hillside towing and recovery jobs, Abrams efficiently knows how to use a Rotator. What a smooth heavy recovery rescue it was with just 1 rotator truck. Our team is always making us proud!
Details Heavy recovery on dump truck in Newmarket
Abrams Towing received a call from a customer. He was in need of a heavy recovery after his dump truck rolled over on its side on a dirt road in Newmarket, ON. One of Abrams heavy recovery team members went out there with a rotator truck. The Abrams recovery team member headed to the location where the incident had happened in Newmarket. From Abrams office on Haines Road in Mississauga, the heavy recovery team member drove onto ON-427 N in Etobicoke. From there, he drove from ON-400 N to Davis DR/W/ON-9 E in Kettleby. He took Exit 55 from ON-400 N and turned right onto Davis Dr W/ON-9 E and followed the road to get to the fallen over dump truck near Newmarket. The Abrams heavy recovery employee then assed the situation. The truck had fallen down a hill and the customer was convinced Abrams would need two heavy wreckers to upright the vehicle and drag it away from the edge of the hill. The Abrams heavy recovery team member, however, knew the Abrams rotator alone would be capable to get this heavy recovery job done. The heavy recovery team member placed a catchline and a dragline to the back end of the truck to keep the dump truck from sliding down the hill. The heavy recovery team member used the rotator to upright the truck and then, the heavy recovery team member effectively dragged it up sideways away from the edge of the hill. Then, the heavy recovery team member hooked up the front wheels of the dump truck to the towing support and towed the dump truck away. The heavy recovery team member then drove away. Great work!
