Details Indianapolis Heavy Recovery Service for Trailer Stuck Behind Guard Rail
Paddack’s Wrecker, Indiana’s go-to heavy recovery service, recently assisted a tractor trailer driver in Indianapolis. The call for a heavy recovery service came from the customer after his trailer got stuck behind the guard rail on the 465, right before Michigan Road.
The heavy recovery service dispatcher sent out 3 team members from Paddack’s Wrecker. They brought with them a 50 ton rotator, 75 ton rotator, and a Century 5130. The heavy recovery service team left headquarters and made their way to the scene.
Once the heavy recovery service crew arrived at the location, they assessed the situation. The fully loaded truck ended up behind the guard rail so they needed to first winch it out. The Indiana State Police covered a lane while the team worked from the shoulder. The heavy recovery service team winched it backward on its side away from the guardrail, and then back toward the roadway.
They used the Century 5130 on the front of the tractor to spike it. The heavy recovery service crew then used the 50 ton rotator with a line over the top of the tank. A catch line to the drive axles was used with the drag line as another spike on the drive axles.
The 75 ton rotator was at the rear and the heavy recovery service team attached a line over the tank, a catch line, and an auxiliary line to spike the trailer axles. To complete the recovery, all three trucks worked together to pull the unit downwards to start bringing it back over the guard rail.
They used the recovery boom and the main line to upright the unit. As the unit came over, the heavy recovery service crew used the catch lines to slowly lower down as a controlled recovery. Once it was upright, they picked the entire unit up, set it on the roadway, and towed it back to the lot.
The entire recovery took the heavy recovery service 1 hour to complete. Aside from the initial damage from rollover which included the cab being smashed and the tank buckling in, there was no secondary damage from recovery.
