Semi Truck 101: Identifying Rear Suspension And Components

Semi Truck 101: Identifying Rear Suspension And Components



Hey Truckers! In this Semi Truck 101 video, we walk you through the rear suspension and components of your semi truck. And with our walk around we give you some tips on what to look out for and some things you can do if you see a potential problem.

In this video, we used a 2012 Volvo Semi Truck as our model 🙂

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:

– – – – 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.
