Heavy towing company, Ed’s 24 Hour Service, recently assisted a customer located in Findlay, OH. The heavy towing company dispatcher answered the call from a tractor trailer driver who needed assistance on the I-75 South, mile marker 157.
The customer called the heavy towing company because his tractor had separated from his trailer. Both units, unfortunately, rolled over and were stuck on the freeway. The heavy towing company sent out two of their operators — Kris, a heavy operator and driver manager, and Carman, a heavy service technician.
The heavy towing company crew brought with them, a Century 1075 rotator, a Vulcan v-50, and a heavy service van. They made their way to the location, where they were met by the tractor trailer driver and the Ohio State Patrol.
Once they arrived, the heavy towing company team assessed the situation. Both the trailer and tractor were heavily damaged in the accident. The trailer was loaded with 28,000 lbs of aluminum wheels and both the tractor and trailer were rolled. The heavy towing company started the recovery by uprighting the tractor with a low line. They then hooked it to the Vulcan V-50.
From there, the heavy towing company operator and technician drug the rear of the trailer over in order to open up a lane of traffic. Next, they set the rotator up on the top side of the trailer and pre-picked the front and rear to get straps underneath. Unfortunately, the trailer was heavily compromised towards the rear.
To complete the recovery, the heavy towing company lifted it with 3 lines and caught it with one. Lastly, they sling-towed the trailer back with the rotator. In total, it took the heavy towing company crew 1.5 hours to complete the recovery.
