The Crockett Interstate Rotator was called to the scene when a totalled boom truck veered off the road near Fall Creek Road in Fall Creek, Oregon. It appeared that the truck was driven slightly off the road. It then slanted to the right and ended up on its side. The boom truck and chipper were both pretty badly damaged.
Our team brought out a rotator, a 35-ton heavy wrecker, a traffic control vehicle. The heavy wrecker was used to first upright the chipper. Next, we used the wrecker to catch the boom truck while the rotator pulled it upright.
Great job to the team. We did this one without any help from local police.
Details of Rotator Near Eugene, Oregon
The Crockett’s Interstate heavy duty towing team was contacted when boom truck and attached wood chip trailer headed off the road in Fall Creek, Oregon. The heavy towing team headed out to Fall Creek Road with a 35 ton heavy wrecker and a rotator. The team arrived with the rotator and heavy wrecker to find the boom truck lying on its side. The chipper was also on its side. The team gathered next to the rotator to figure out what to do. A short conversation occurred. The team then left the rotator to examine the boom truck and chipper. Both pieces of equipment were badly damaged. The cab on the boom truck was damaged. The box on the chipper was damaged. The first job was to upright the chipper. They first moved the rotator out of the way. Next, the heavy duty towing team attached towing straps from the heavy wrecker and attached them to the body of the chipper. The rotator watched from the side. Carefully, they unrighted the chipper and placed it onto the ground. Next, they placed the chipper onto a flatbed. The flatbed dove away past the rotator. Now, they moved the rotator into place to upright the boom truck. The heavy duty towing team placed straps onto the cab and base of the truck that were connected to the rotator. Next, they tightened the towing straps and the boom truck quickly moved back upright. The heavy wrecker was used as a catch truck to keep the boom truck from falling over on the other side. The rotator was then used to move the boom truck onto a near landoll trailer. The boom truck was carefully placed onto the landoll trailer by the rotator. The heavy duty towing team then fastened the boom truck to the landoll, before removing the straps from the rotator. The rotator was then shored up and prepared to be taken back to Crockett Interstate Headquarters. The boom truck was given a heavy tow to the Crockettes Interstate HQ. The chipper was given a medium tow to the yard.
