Semi Truck Lifted Out of Ditch! Near Hazmat Disaster


TEMPERATURE: 114 F (45.5 C) In today's video Plaza Towing responds to a rolled over semi and a semi in the ditch. Plaza Towing was specifically called because of our rotator to lift the semi, who's fuel tanks were resting on the ground, to prevent a hazmat disaster from occurring. Several challenges such as low boom angle, uneven terrain, and working off the corner made this a difficult one. Nonetheless, Plaza Towing was able to remove the casualty with no additional damage causes. As mentioned in the beginning, this truck was trying to avoid a semi that had rolled over causing it to go into the ditch. Plaza Towing assisted the other company on scene with the rollover with Darl at the controls. Unfortunately, this was not recorded. Trent and Darl take turns running the truck, therefore, Trent Jr ran it on this one. Enjoy!

A: I use the Go Pro Hero 7 Black Edition primarily. Often times you will see auxillary cameras in use. Those cameras include The Go Pro Hero 6, Hero, and DJI Mavic Pro Platinum Q: How big Is your rotator? A: It is a 50 ton Miller Industries Vulcan 950 Q: Does the carriage slide back like Ron Pratt's? A: No, the carriage doesn't slide back due to strict weight laws in California. The sliding carriage will make the truck to heavy in CA Q: Why do you only have 3 winches on the rotator? A: Comes down to weight again as stated above Q: How many trucks Does Plaza Towing have? A: Currently more than 30 Q: Why must the driveshaft be removed to tow a vehicle? A: When vehicles are not running the transmission is not receiving circulating lubricant. If the driveshaft is left installed, the transmission, which is not receiving lubricant, is still spinning. This allows it to get very hot which eventually will cause major damage to the transmission. Therefore, removing the driveshaft completely eliminates the transmission from spinning. Simply leaving it in neutral is not sufficient since the transmission still spins in neutral.
