Accidents can happen even with the best safety protocols in place

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.

At Big Rig Towing, we provide 24/7 assistance for all heavy-duty towing needs. For towing inquiries or to explore our services further, reach out to us at 1 (866) 398-7444. Your safety and satisfaction are our top priorities.
