Hydraulic Under Lift
Our extremely low, modern long reach under-lifts manufactured by Ekebol Engineering. These under-lifts are designed to hydraulically reach under the front or rear of trucks / equipment to safely lift on springs or axles and tow.
These systems are particularly useful for vehicles with low bumpers and fairings, there is no need to remove and refit these so it speeds up the recovery and repair process.
Drive-shaft removal is recommended for all frontal towing to ensure the drive train is not affected.
These systems have superseded the ‘pole towing’ method, which is unsafe and illegal in other countries.
Hydraulically Extendible Crane Booms
The hydraulically extendible booms provide an extra option to our recovery trucks and enable us to carry out controlled righting of a rolled over vehicle as well as lifting off barrier arms, tree stumps and out of drains etc.
Our hydraulic booms are rated to lift a heavy vehicle off an object or put back on its wheels.
SP 850-XP"Hydraulic Pivoting Stiff-Leg" - WAR Machine
All recovery operators have experienced the problems of having traffic backed up with a casualty down in a ravine and the law enforcement not wanting to block lanes of traffic. The SP 850-XP option can solve these types of situations with a pivoting hydraulic stiff-leg to handle tough side pull recoveries and eliminate the need to block more lanes of traffic than necessary.
Our Recovery Trucks are fitted with powerful multi-winches, which are rated to winch 100 tonne plus to salvage a wide range of Trucks, Buses and other equipment in various situations.
All our trucks are equipped with a huge range of tools as well as a range of salvage straps, strops, chains, gas cutting equipment, lighting, spades, chainsaws, cones, spill grit etc for any scene we are dispatched to.
Hydraulic Stabiliser Legs
These long hydraulic stabiliser legs provide additional stability to the recovery vehicle, which enables them to anchor the recovery vehicle while winching / lifting.
Recovery trucks are fitted with 5th wheel trailer attachments, which allow us greater flexibility when attending jobs.
High-Pressure Air Mats
High-pressure air mats are able to lift from 20-30 tonne enabling us to carry out ‘first-lifts’ on vehicles.
Coach Lifting Attachments
Trucks are equipped with specialist Tour Coach and Bus lifting attachments.
Wireless Remote Controls
Wireless remote controls speed up recovery work and save time.
We carry a wide range of air tools for quick recovery.
Have you been in an accident?
AND FOLLOW THESE BASIC STEPS
If you have been in an accident, first and foremost, check that everyone involved is ok and move to a safer area.
Call 111 if someone has been hurt or if you suspect someone has been hurt. We would suggest that the police are called in any instance, as keeping traffic flowing safely will be essential. You will be required to stay on the line, so have a second person or phone to call us asap as this won’t be done for you.
Even if your vehicle is blocking traffic, leave it where it is, particularly if there is uncertainty about what happened in the accident.
