180,000 lbs worth of calculated resistance to overcome, who do you call. The US Army Corps of Engineers called on PRO-TOW 24 Hr Towing from Auburn, WA for this urgent and highly technical recovery. PRO-TOW assembled a team of professionals and had this solved within 24 hours.
How We Rescued the Excavator
With over 500 feet of unfavorable terrain to overcome, we assembled a team of excavators, dumptrucks, a loader, a bull dozer, 4 heavy duty wreckers, and two incident support and command post vehicles–along with approximately 20 professionals to successfully solve this without any environmental impact. No fluids were lossed, and the environment was saved from any ancillary damage. With OSHA certified riggers, 200 Tons of tow truck capacity, this technical recovery was successful.
