    Oh and the red lines are where they were rigged to and the white lines are where they were thought to be.

    the worst part was they cleaned that whole mess up with one wrecker. both overturned units and the container.

    Lowboy turned out fine Mountain Man,I added a piece of 10" channel across the front of the deck and was able to build chain boxes on each side of the goose neck."old yeller" has her tire chains on parked in the shed ,It's winter time LOL. I usually leave the chains on untill spring. Here's a link showing a few jobs with "old yeller" http://www.heavyequipmentforums.com/showthread.php?13239-Wrecker-call
