Almost as fun as driving an Élan

Maybe only 15,000lbs.
Sure seemed like 20+
My front axel is 5,500. And I had the lines doubled, two 15,000lb winches on the 20t boom!

2018 F350. 8,000lb 20’ down a 70degree slope. On some trees.

It’s crazy, every time since last fall. When there has been one accident, two more right away. It’s the strangest thing, within a 24hr period. I haven’t figured out the cycle exactly yet. But it seems lunar. Anyone working with the public wanna comment?

You need to be on 'Highway thru Hell' Love watching it. I try to think of ways to upright a semi or
get out of situations, but I'm usually wrong :)

From 20+ years of river rescue. Pulling 40,000lb rafts full of rushing water, only man power and mechanical advantage. Tow trucks are easy, and fun. Most of the Highway thru Hell stuff is good, and good reminders.
There is never the same situation twice, thou the math and logic is the same. Keep it simple.
There have been 6 motorbikes in the river already this year, people are going crazy to get out :roll:
