Iowa Heavy Machinery Transport Pros Move Wrecked Farm Sprayer to Yard for Storage
Benefiel Truck Repair & Towing recently came to the rescue of a customer in Shenandoah, IA with a heavy machinery transport job. It all started when the dispatcher received a call at 9:00 p.m. from the Page County Sheriff’s Office about a wrecked farm sprayer missing a wheel on 190th St between D Ave & E Ave.
Without hesitation, the experienced team at Benefiel Truck Repair & Towing sprang into action. They dispatched a rotator, service truck, heavy duty rollback, and an integrated wrecker to the scene after gathering all the necessary details from the deputies on site.
When they arrived, they were met with a light duty towing company who were there to remove a Jeep from the scene in order to clear the way for Benefiel to begin their recovery. The first thing the heavy duty towing team did was use the rotator to remove the hoses from the hub and lift the tire and hub assembly onto the rollback. They rigged the unit for recovery and using the integrated wrecker and rotator, they lifted the vehicle out of the ditch. With their years of experience, the team worked like a well-oiled machine.
Once the unit was on the road, the team made sure to use front and rear escorts for safety as they towed it to the Benefiel yard in Hamburg for storage. It was a job well done thanks to the professionalism and teamwork of the heavy machinery transport pros at Benefiel Truck Repair & Towing!
