Very nice. Good for him!!! However, I drive a Ford so personally, I have no need of one of those. Maybe all those Genital Motors drivers would be wise to keep his number on speed dial.

Just joking of course. Sort of.

Impressive. That one is for the big boy trucks, isn't it? (Mac trucks and commercial stuff I'm guessing). Around here all the old wreckers that used to haul cars and passenger trucks have disappeared. All are hauled on flat bed haulers now.

I had one of my Mack trucks quit running about 75 miles south of here. Loaded trailer, 6 miles form destination. Since we had two trucks running together, we were able to get the loaded trailer off the disabled truck roadside. It was winter, cold as heck to.

Had the big boy wrecker tow it home for $975.00.

The mechanic I use had it running in about 10 minutes, found a relay switch bad that cost $25.00....

My $1,000 lesson for that day..

Regards, Kirk

Yep, it don't take much sometimes. A bad relay, broken wire. Expensive day, cheap fix.

In my youth I worked for a towing company that had several of these. I dispatched them on calls almost nightly. We would tow the semi's into our yard and wait for the company to call and tell us where they wanted their truck and trailer towed. It added up to a nice bill.

Be careful.
Cheap may not always be the most inexpensive.
Michelin makes nice long lasting and quiet tires.
