Somehow this roller got turned over in the process of compacting gravel. These 40,000 lb rollers are extremely heavy, but surprisingly it only takes a few degrees off-centre for even something this big to roll. If you’re big and heavy, and overturned, you simply need something bigger and heavier and more rigid to set you upright again.
As you can see from the images below, for this heavy rescue it took a couple of Big Rig’s tow trucks and cranes to upright this roller onto a flatbed.

Your rig is your livelihood so it’s critical to keep it in perfect condition and operating at peak efficiency.
It is an expensive piece of equipment so keeping it clean and running smoothly is not only a great responsibility that may take some time and maintenance, but more importantly it’s your best defense to avoid trouble while out on the road. After all, you don’t want to worry about forced downtime and loss of time and income.
A well-maintained and properly functioning rig can help to ensure your safety and the safety of the drivers around you as well as add years to the life of your rig.
Before a long haul it’s important that you take the time to check your oil, inspect your radiator and your brakes, top up your fluids, grease moving parts, check the fuel vent, check your tires and of course, ensure your load is secured.
Keeping the interior clean is especially important especially if you’re “living” or spending long periods of time in it. It’s your home away from home and pride of ownership can make a difference to your comfort, your sleep, your quality of life and peace of mind.
Keeping the exterior clean can mean additional safety by cleaning your mirrors and cleaning your windows. By keeping it waxed and polished you add protection to your rig’s longevity.
Be pro-active! Creating your own preventive maintenance checklist for pre-trip inspection is definitely a great habit to get into to ensure everything runs smoothly ahead of time.
From high winds, heavy downpours and slick road conditions, to wildlife, heavier summer traffic on the highway, and fatigue, unfortunately accidents happen.
