Taking an Unexpected Turn 

One busy morning, we received a call that set us in motion immediately. A tractor-trailer, carrying a load of 20,000 lb of standard groceries, made a too-tight turn. Unfortunately, it caught a bridge support on the Dallas North Tollway Service Road at Wycliff Avenue. The impact caused the trailer to lean precariously, posing a significant risk. The situation called for a Dallas heavy duty recovery mission. We immediately dispatched to complete this heavy towing job.

Ahead of the Curve: Arriving on Scene

We arrived on the scene before law enforcement. Our operator, fully prepared and equipped with our 50-ton rotator, was ready to tackle the challenge head-on. Our primary goal was to safely recover the trailer and its precious cargo of groceries, ensuring minimal disruption to the morning traffic flow and minimal damage to the goods. 

The Recovery: A Turn for the Better

With just one of our skilled employees on the job, we impressively managed to complete the recovery of the tractor-trailer in under 45 minutes from receiving the initial call. Post-recovery, the tractor-trailer was back on its journey, ensuring the timely delivery of its cargo of groceries. Indeed, it would have been unfortunate if anyone had to start their day without breakfast essentials due to this incident!

Our response to the incident was swift, thanks to our readiness and the strategic use of our 50-ton rotator. This equipment is particularly suited for Dallas heavy-duty recovery operations, allowing us to handle substantial weights and complex situations with precision.
