Semi-Truck Towing Services
If you have ever watched the T.V. show “Highway Thru Hell,” you’ve seen how tough winching a semi out of a ditch can be. In addition to needing heavy duty towing machinery, recovery operators also need to decide how to pull the semi without causing further damage or losing the cargo.
When bad weather strikes, the job gets tougher, especially in the snow. When semi’s obstruct traffic, experience is the key to getting them moved quickly and minimizing the impact on traffic flow.
Semi-truck recoveries depend on winches, which include a long steel cable that wraps around a circular drum. An electric or hydraulic motor unspools the cable, which is clamped onto the semi. The operator then must carefully pull the truck out while avoiding causing damage to the rig.
St. Louis Towing can recover semis from anywhere, including:
- Low bridge recovery
Not all semi tows require recovery. Often, mechanical breakdowns are the culprit. Our operators respond in a snap to semi breakdowns across the St. Louis region. We are always open and ready to respond with heavy duty towing equipment.
Often, whether due to a wreck or mechanical issue, the most logical thing to do is swap out the tractor so the load can be delivered on time. We can deliver the replacement and tow the broken tractor to the repair shop or our secured storage facility.
Our operators are also trained in truck repair. In many cases, they can fix the problem onsite, and the truck can continue to its destination.
