Heavy Recovery for Trailer Filled with Paper Rolls
A heavy trailer, filled to the brim with paper rolls and destined for sunny California, recently required heavy recovery services. The trailer driver was climbing up a steep incline when suddenly disaster struck. The left landing gear dug into the ground, causing the weight of the trailer to pull the right side into the air, rendering the tractor immobile. That’s when Goodfellas Towing swooped in to save the day.
Goodfellas Towing didn’t waste any time dispatching a team of three heavy recovery experts to the scene in Rogue River, Oregon. The team brought along their trusty 50-ton Century Wrecker on a 389 Peterbilt chassis, ready to tackle any challenge. They were met with the Oregon Department of Transportation at the location, who were impressed by their efficiency.
The Goodfellas experts got right to work. First, they secured the area and formulated a plan. They hooked recovery chains through the ICC bumper and attached them to the trailer on both sides of the frame. Using both winches, they slowly and carefully lifted the back of the trailer up onto the road, making sure not to tip the trailer over.
Throughout the whole process, traffic continued to flow through a narrow passage on the right side of the disabled tractor/trailer. The entire heavy duty recovery operation took the Goodfellas team a mere two hours from start to finish. It’s safe to say that this customer was grateful to have Goodfellas Towing on their side when disaster struck. Great job out there, team! Keep it up!
