When it comes to towing heavy-duty trucks, trailers, and equipment, there are significant differences compared to towing smaller vehicles like cars, trucks, or SUVs. These types of heavy-duty vehicles require specialized equipment and expertise to ensure a safe and efficient recovery process. That’s why Big Rig Towing offers the option of air cushion recovery, a modern and state-of-the-art solution for up-righting rolled over trucks and trailer units. Air cushion recovery is a highly effective and safe solution for up-righting rolled over heavy-duty trucks and trailers.
How does air cushion recovery work? Large inflatable air cushions are strategically placed under the overturned side of the heavy-duty truck or trailer. An air compressor is then used to gradually pump up the cushions, which allows the vehicle to be slowly lifted off the ground. This enables a crane to lift it into its upright position, ready for transport.
Air cushion recovery offers a range of benefits compared to traditional recovery methods. One of the main advantages is that it can be completed in a much shorter amount of time. This is due to the fact that air cushions can be inflated quickly and easily, reducing the overall recovery time.
Another benefit of air cushion recovery is that it eliminates the need for removing your cargo before lifting the truck. This is because the cushions are placed strategically under the overturned side of the vehicle, allowing it to be lifted without causing damage to the cargo. This is especially important when dealing with hazardous materials or fragile cargo.
Air cushion recovery also allows for vehicle removal in tight corners or in areas where uneven topography makes heavy-duty recovery impossible. This is because the cushions can be placed in a variety of positions, allowing for a more controlled and balanced lift.
