Major heavy duty accidents and recoveries compilation

Major heavy duty accidents and recoveries compilation



This is a compilation of recent recoveries I’ve done that I did not have enough footage for an entire video on its own. They range from a simple vehicle vehicle over the side recovery to a massive heavy duty burn job. Leave a comment to let me know which one was your favorite; I’ll be choosing 3 winners at random by the end of this week to give out cool limited Pepe’s swag!

UPDATE: Winners have been announced! Congrats to:

Using a 75ton rotator to upright a tractor trailer

Using a 75ton rotator to upright a tractor trailer



On June 24, 2019, I responded to a tractor trailer loaded with tires that overturned on the Harry Bridges off ramp in San Pedro. The company sent their own containers and crew to offload the tires, although they were only able to take 85-90% of the load. Once the scene was clear, recovery straps were rigged to the lift line and dual 15′ 1/2″ chains were rigged to the catch line. I used one of the auxiliary winches to help the tractor come over with the trailer, while a heavy wrecker was placed in the front to control the catch, then prepped for tow back to customer’s base.

– – – – Frequently Asked Questions – – – –
Q:What camera do you use?
A: I use the Go Pro Hero 7 Black Edition primarily. Often times you will see auxillary cameras in use. Those cameras include The Go Pro Hero 6, Hero, and DJI Mavic Pro Platinum

Q: How big Is your rotator?
A: It is a 50 ton Miller Industries Vulcan 950

Q: Does the carriage slide back like Ron Pratt’s?
A: No, the carriage doesn’t slide back due to strict weight laws in California. The sliding carriage will make the truck to heavy in CA

Q: Why do you only have 3 winches on the rotator?
A: Comes down to weight again as stated above

Q: How many trucks Does Plaza Towing have?
A: Currently more than 30

Q: Why must the driveshaft be removed to tow a vehicle?
A: When vehicles are not running the transmission is not receiving circulating lubricant. If the driveshaft is left installed, the transmission, which is not receiving lubricant, is still spinning. This allows it to get very hot which eventually will cause major damage to the transmission. Therefore, removing the driveshaft completely eliminates the transmission from spinning. Simply leaving it in neutral is not sufficient since the transmission still spins in neutral.

Q:What camera do you use?
A: I use the Go Pro Hero 6 Black Edition

Q: Why don’t you have a rotator?
A: Simply said, our wide open desert highways here in Indio do not require a rotator. Most scenarios allow us to drive the truck right down to the wreckage and perform our recovery without taking up any more lane than a rotator would. Another simple reason is price. They are very expensive trucks that, once again aren’t really needed here. With that being said, that doesn’t mean we will never get one just not at the moment.

2001 F350 7.3 Diesel -VS- 3 Battery Jumpers, Can any Jump Start it?? NOCO, Audew, JNC Air

2001 F350 7.3 Diesel -VS- 3 Battery Jumpers, Can any Jump Start it?? NOCO, Audew, JNC Air



This was a fun test to make, not knowing what will happen is the biggest fun of it all, Since the 7.3 is such a big old school diesel engine i knew it was to put up a fight for sure an she did!!! Next video i want to see how many starts i can get per each jumper box on one full charge with the Silverado 5.3 engine.

Also i want to find a 6.7 started from a 2011-2017 F250 and see if that can fit and if that would improve the starting process perhaps????

If you were thinking about getting one of these chargers here are the links bellow, I would suggest the Audew because its the cheapest and seems to be the most capable, Noco would be my second choice because its bigger so im guessing it can jump start more times than Audew and the JNC Air is also great because its a compressor all in one and its capable of starting all sort of engines as well and pump some tires.
