A couple of close friends of mine do this kind of work. Their rotator truck that they would use for this cost will over half a million dollars.

That is very impressive. There are jobs that have bad hours but pretty much being on call 24/7 would suck, I hope they make good money.

Wow I bet that was a wild ride.  Quite the recovery operation, how long did it take them?

Go on Youtube and search for "Ron Pratt" or "Plaza Towing" or "Pepe's Towing"

So, how did that rig get down there?  Must have been a hell of a ride!

it's just a guess, but  based on how straight it was when it stopped, I'd wager that the driver fell asleep and it zoomed on down the slope.

^^^nice.

 

I was operator on our old M543 wrecker in my company back in the day.  The one and only time my rig broke down, I got towed by a HEMTT.  :beerchug:
