Stuck in a rut? Big Rig can help!

The D9 Cat is an awesome 23 ft earth-moving bulldozer. Weighing in at anywhere from 8 to 104 tons, this giant can go almost anywhere and move almost anything. However, that kind of weight can also sink pretty fast into mud or soft earth if not kept on the move when trying to plow through it.

It isn’t very often you need help to get this Cat out of the mud, but every now and then even the D9 can get in over its head. Two of our biggest rigs had a hard time getting this Cat unstuck and back to work, but with skill and patience we accomplished the goal.

Anywhere, anytime, Big Rig Towing is available to service all of your heavy-duty towing and recovery requirements. Call (866) 398-7444.

 

We Don’t Tow Cars

Just because we don’t tow cars does not mean that we only tow big rigs.

If its heavy and needs to be moved from point A to point B professionally and carefully Big Rig Towing has moved just about everything.

This example of three Fork Lifts that needed to be moved from warehouse to warehouse is a perfect example.

Whether it’s farm equipment, excavators, bulldozers or even fork lifts we have towed them and more.

Call us 403-444-0009 to get an estimate on towing your heavy equipment.

Not Just a Towing Company

Big Rig Towing ClassroomWhen a school needs new portables to accommodate its students, that’s a good thing. It means that more kids are getting an education and the classroom space they need to do that is being made available.

The logistics of moving a 55ft long 25ft wide 4,000 lb portable classroom into its place in a schoolyard takes a lot more math and science than one would think. It takes some pretty heavy machinery and those with the skill to operate that machinery to get the job done right.

Big Rig Towing doesn’t just tow and rescue big trucks and trailers. Our 75 ton rotator rig has hundreds of applications and can sometimes get to and do things that cranes and cherry pickers can’t. Like placing portable classrooms in a schoolyard in Calgary.

Find out how Big Rig Towing can help you accomplish your heavy lifting needs. Call us (403) 444-0009.

Snocoach Repair

There are some big jobs that you wouldn’t think would be a part of your company mandate. But that is the great thing about Big Rig Towing. We have the philosophy that where there’s a will there’s a way.

A Snowcoach is a specialized passenger transport vehicle, designed to operate over snow or ice. These vehicles have multiple sets of very large low pressure tires or snow tracks. These vehicles can seat as many as ten or more passengers and are often used for sightseeing tours or for over-snow transportation like a tour of the Columbia ice fields in Banff National Park.

This Snowcoach was in need of a complete overhaul and Big Rig used their rotator crane to lift the body off the chassis so both could be rebuilt and put back into service.

Crane VS Crane

Because we are called Big Rig Towing that’s mostly what we do. But it’s not all that we do.

Big Rig Towing can do anything that a heavy crane can do and more.

In this case we needed to load four cranes onto a truck for transport. Our 75 ton rotator crane made quick work of the job.

We don’t tow cars but if it’s a big rig, truck or something that’s heavy enough to need a crane, we can get the job done.
