n Saturday January 2nd 2021 Wayne Hall of Mountain Towing & Recovery received a call to recover a pickup from a ditch. Wayne informed, “We got a morning request to recover a 1980 Toyota 4x4 pickup that had hit a deer the night before and veered off of Hwy 56 onto its side into the flood control ditch.”

Wayne responded alone to 4000N Hwy 56 in Cedar City, Utah with his 2019 Ford 4x4 F-550 with a Dynamic 755. This Dynamic 755 is an integrated twin line unit equipped with a 5,000-pound self-loading wheel lift and two mini spool 8,000-pound winches. When Wayne arrived he found the Toyota was in a 4to 5-foot deep flood canal on its driver’s side. He said, “You could barely see the truck from the highway. The police had cleared the wreck with yellow tape. Luckily nobody was hurt. I parked the Dynamic wrecker approximately 40-feet to the east at an angle, but not interfering with traffic. Working this Toyota 4x4 recovery I used both the left and right winches with snatch blocks off the tail board D rings.”

This Dynamic 755 utilized its integrated twin line and two mini spool 8,000 pound winches to recover a 4x4 pickup.

Work the non-traffic side - Stay Safe!
