Presentation Transcript
slide5

Trailer still had residual product inside and was fighting to lay on its side. Strap was used high off forward wrecker (Holmes 750) to keep tanker level and on its wheels.

slide6

The forward wrecker (Holmes 750) connected to the pivot point at the 5th wheel and the upper strap holding the trailer level. A medium wrecker was connected to the front of the tractor to guide it along.

slide7

The rearward wrecker (NRC 35 ton) was connected to the rear of the trailer. The boom was raised to help the underside valves on the trailer clear the shoulder.

slide8
MPI’s loader was used to stabilize at pivot point. Note: entire area was excavated due to diesel contamination.

The product inside had to be shoveled down to the bottom and centered to keep the trailer from leaning.

The trucks were repositioned so the trailer could be separated from the tractor. The tractor was being readied to place on the carrier.
