Our Elk Grove heavy duty tow team made their way to a construction site after a telehandler malfunctioned. A construction crew was working on underground pipes at an intersection. They were using the telehandler to offload equipment off of trucks.
Everything was going smoothly until the telehandler’s hydraulics completely locked up! The construction team was now stuck with a massive telehandler that no one could move! O’Hare’s heavy duty tow team was on site within 20 minutes of getting the phone call.
Seeing as the telehandler was on the road, they needed to be extremely precise with the lifting process to ensure no issues with passing motorists. This seems like a good time to remind you to slow down and move over if you ever see a tow truck on the side of the road!
Thankfully, the telehandler had designated lifting points, making the set-up process a lot smoother and definitely quicker! Once all the straps were in place, the team began the lifting process. Once the blue telehandler was in the air, the heavy duty tow team backed their RGN trailer underneath it.
With the trailer in place, the team was able to safely lower the telehandler onto the trailer. From there, it was a short drive to the repair facility.
Great work out there team!
A call came in for the Elk Grove heavy duty tow division. A customer in Elk Grove needed assistance from the heavy duty tow team as their telehandler had broken down. O’Hare Towing Service dispatched their heavy tow team to the customer’s location.
Once on location, the Elk Grove heavy duty tow team assessed the situation. The construction crew was working at an intersection installing underground pipes. They were using the telehandler to off-load equipment and materials from trucks. The heavy duty tow team noted that the telehandler’s wheels could not move due to an issue with the hydraulics.
The heavy tow team attached their rigging to the lift points on the telehandler. With all the rigging in place, the heavy duty tow team slowly lifted the telehandler into the air. With the telehandler in the air, the heavy towing team slowly maneuvered their RGN trailer underneath it.
The heavy towing team then lowered the broken down telehandler onto the RGN trailer. They strapped it in place, ensuring that it would not move during the tow. With everything in order, the heavy towing team made their way to the repair facility with the telehandler. They lifted it into the air to offload it.
The heavy duty tow team then made their way back to O’Hare Towing Service where they cleaned all the equipment they used, ensuring that it would be ready for the next job!
RGN trailers are low-clearance trailers perfect for moving large vehicles. Whenever we have a vehicle like a bus or large construction equipment, we use RGN trailers to ensure that all height clearance requirements are met.
