Your rig is NOT an off-road vehicle!

If you have inadvertently ended up off the hardtop and are carrying a heavy load, you are probably in trouble.

Late fall frost and snow make roadsides and fields wet and soft turning them into mud traps. If your rig gets stuck in the mud, it can be a real hair puller to get it “unstuck”.

Mud likes to suck in and trap axles from forward or backward movement. When you spin the tires in an attempt to free them, they will only sink the truck further into the mud and make the situation worse. You can try to dig some mud from the front end of the leading wheels and then nudge the rig forward slowly until you gain solid ground, but if that fails you can save yourself a whole lot of effort and back pain buy just calling a professional like Big Rig Towing to get you back on the black top.

This trailer slid off the road loaded with a 40,000 pound packer in the Bearspaw District west of Calgary. Big Rig picked up both the machine and trailer, placed them back on the road and got them back on their way safely and quickly.
