Heavy Duty Towing
Putting the Power Into the Pull
You’re on your way to the city for a fun night out, when the bus driver abruptly swerves to the side of the road and comes to a complete stop on the shoulder of the highway. Peering out of the window to see what just happened, you notice that two of the bus tires have completely lost their form.
The good news is that this isn’t the bus driver’s first go-around. The moment that the bus was securely stopped on the side of the road, the bus driver placed a call to our Atlas Towing team—and we’re already on our way.
The Heavy-Duty Basics
Powerful and large in size, heavy-duty tow trucks are equipped with the pulling power and amplified recovery system that’s necessary to successfully provide help in even the most demanding recovery situations—from rollovers, to high centers (e.g., bottoming out), to accidents.
Getting the Job Done
Heavy-duty tow trucks are equipped with under-reach and wheel-lift technology, making them proficient at providing high-powered, damage-free towing. This distinct technique begins by lifting from the axle or tires of the large vehicle.
The front end of the vehicle is then lifted in the air, until the back two tires are the only part of the vehicle that remain in contact with the ground. Once the vehicle is indeed secure and prepared for safe transport, it can finally be towed to the client’s desired destination.
