How does air cushion recovery work?

When it comes to towing heavy-duty trucks, trailers, and equipment, specialized expertise and equipment are essential for a safe and efficient recovery process. Big Rig Towing provides an innovative solution: air cushion recovery. This modern technique is specifically designed for up-righting rolled over trucks and trailers, ensuring safety and effectiveness.

Air cushion recovery involves placing large inflatable cushions strategically under the overturned vehicle. Using an air compressor, these cushions are gradually inflated, which allows the vehicle to be slowly lifted off the ground. This allows a crane to smoothly upright the truck or trailer for transport.

Compared to traditional methods, air cushion recovery offers several advantages. It significantly reduces recovery time since the cushions can be inflated quickly. Additionally, there’s no need to unload cargo beforehand as the cushions are positioned to avoid damage.

Moreover, air cushion recovery is versatile, enabling vehicle removal in tight corners or challenging terrains. The cushions’ flexibility allows for precise positioning, ensuring a balanced lift.

Proper Load Securement Matters & Ensures Safe Transport

When it comes to trucking safety, the peril doesn’t solely lurk in treacherous road conditions or unpredictable weather. Sometimes, it boils down to a fundamental aspect, that is, securely tying down your load.

How often have you witnessed a mammoth truck grappling with a massive load, precariously navigating through tight corners, seemingly on the verge of tipping over? Or a flatbed carrying a load wider than its surface, clearly off-center? While tying down the cargo is crucial, its initial placement holds equal importance; improper positioning can spell trouble down the road.

Consider the scenario where a hefty 65,000-pound steel coil shifts during transport. Big Rig Towing faced this formidable challenge, skillfully hoisting the coil from its deck and delicately transferring it to another trailer. This task isn’t for the faint-hearted, but expertise prevailed. Big Rig understood the significance of employing the right tie-downs and securing the load adeptly to prevent shifting, maintaining optimal center of balance throughout the journey.

Should you encounter a load in jeopardy, taking risks isn’t an option. Reach out to Big Rig Towing & Recovery promptly at (866) 398-7444 for immediate assistance. We’re your reliable allies, committed to ensuring safe transport.

Uprighting overturned heavy-duty trucks and equipment

The utilization of air cushion recovery represents a significant advancement in the process of uprighting rolled-over heavy-duty trucks, trailers, and equipment. Big Rig Towing demonstrated this innovation by providing air cushion recovery services during the rescue and recovery operations time and time again.

In this type of rescue and recovery, large inflatable air cushions are strategically positioned beneath the overturned vehicle. With the aid of an air compressor, these cushions gently elevate the weighty load, facilitating a seamless transition to an upright position, preparing it for transport.

The benefits of air cushion recovery are abundant. Firstly, it’s remarkably time-efficient. The swift inflation of the cushions expedites the entire recovery process. Additionally, it eliminates the necessity to unload cargo before lifting the truck, preserving cargo integrity, especially crucial for hazardous or delicate freight.

This method excels in challenging terrains or tight corners where traditional recovery methods may falter. The adaptable placement of cushions ensures a controlled and balanced lift in any scenario.
