Jerr-Dan’s JD25 INT Updates 25-Ton Wrecker

Jerr-Dan, an Oshkosh Corporation company, recently announced the JD25 INT, a new replacement model for its current 25-ton wrecker. Available in both single- and tandem-axle body configurations, this updated heavy-duty integrated wrecker is ideal for towing medium- and heavy-duty trucks, buses and tractor trailers. Designed to meet the needs of today’s tower, this all-new underlift has the power and reach to handle every day heavy duty towing needs. It boasts a rated capacity of 32,000 pounds retracted, and 15,000 pounds fully extended at 131 inches at ground level. The newly designed boom, rated at 50,000 pounds fully retracted, and 16,000 pounds fully extended at 0 degrees, features 134” of reach off the tailboard, giving the operator the ability to perform vehicle recoveries and un-deck trucks with ease. The unit comes standard with a pair of 25,000-pound Ramsey two-speed winches, and an optional fully proportional wireless remote featuring two-speed winch control and winch free-spool engagement. To allow the operator to maximize the truck’s performance, the new tailboard comes standard with four D-rings, air and electrical hookups, and rear stabilizers equipped with D-rings and three-position spade feet. “This new and improved 25-ton, integrated heavy-duty wrecker combines Jerr-Dan quality, durability and reliability with industry-leading features. Based on Voice of Customer feedback, we’ve increased boom and underlift capabilities, and improved control functionality,” said Heath Fassnacht, director of sales at Jerr-Dan. “The JD25 INT is competitively-priced and delivers unprecedented productivity and the ability to successfully complete a wide range of towing and recovery operations with significant benefits for owners and operators.” Other features of the redesigned JD25 INT wrecker include: • Touchlink control system for lighting winches with integrated E-stop • The optional Touchlink in-cab underlift control panel allows the operator to control the underlift from inside the cab • Fully proportional electric/hydraulic (E/H) controls for driver’s side control station with fewer moving parts to reduce maintenance time and cost (e.g. push/pull cables) • Base body supports both single and tandem axle applications
