Heavy Duty Tow for Trailer Carrying Canned Beverages
Benefiel Truck Repair & Towing recently had to handle a heavy duty tow job after a huge tractor trailer accident on I-29 in Missouri. The call came in from the Missouri Highway Patrol, who reported that the trailer carrying canned beverages had taken a serious hit, leaving its contents scattered all over the place!
Without skipping a beat, the towing company dispatched a 75-ton rotator, a heavy-duty wrecker, and other support equipment to the scene. When the crew arrived, they found the canned beverages strewn all over the ditch and hillside.
Despite the chaos, the heavy duty tow team got to work. Using their 75-ton rotator, they managed to recover the tractor and lift it over the guard rail. They then used the rotator to recover the rear axles, which were loaded onto a heavy-duty rollback for transport. The trailer was brought back down the hill and the cargo was removed from the trailer using the track loader.
Once the cargo was removed, the crew used their heavy-duty wrecker to tow the trailer away, leaving the equipment behind for cargo cleanup and remediation. The next day, they cleaned up the cargo and transported it to a recycling transfer station.
Benefiel Truck Repair & Towing proved that no job is too big for them to handle! Nice work, team!
Details of Heavy Duty Tow for Trailer Carrying Canned Beverages
Benefiel Truck Repair & Towing received a dispatch from the Missouri Highway Patrol requesting a heavy duty tow. There had been a tractor trailer accident on I-29 SB at the 87-mile marker at approximately 12:33 pm. The heavy duty tow company immediately dispatched a rotator and a heavy duty wrecker.
Upon arrival at the scene, the heavy duty tow crew found that the tractor trailer had left the road and climbed a bridge approach nearly reaching the road above, breaking the front out of the trailer, and spilling canned beverages all over the ditch and hillside.
The heavy duty tow crew dispatched a lowboy with our wheel loader and attachments and a heavy duty rollback with a compact track loader and attachments. While support equipment was en route, the tractor recovery began using a 75-ton rotator to bring the tractor to the top of the bridge approach and lift it over the guard rail.
The heavy duty tow crew brought the trailer back down the hill so that the cargo could be removed from the trailer using the track loader. The lowboy circled around and using the rotator the tractor was loaded onto the lowboy for transport to Benefiel Truck Repair Mound City.
The loaders were used to place the trailer back onto the road and the trailer was towed away using the heavy duty wrecker. The rotator was used again to unload the tractor in the big rig towing Mound City impound.
The following morning, the heavy duty tow crew returned for cleanup. The heavy duty tow crew loaded the cargo and transported it to the American Recycling transfer station in Tarkio, Missouri. The traffic control and lane drop were removed, restoring I-29 to full traffic.
