Heavy Duty Towing Required when Fifty Year Old Woman Drives Wild Near Power Lines
(248) 620-1455 Byers Wrecker
Heavy duty towing was inevitable when a Jeep Wrangler went off-road and became terribly stuck in Ortonville, MI. We arrived to find a fifty-year-old woman who had decided to try her new 4×4 Wrangler in some off-road driving. In fact, we think it’s pretty awesome that someone actually used the 4WD for what it was designed, going off roading.
The driver of the SUV took a road near power lines since there were no trees and the terrain was perfect to try out her Wrangler. The recovery took a bit of effort as the ground was pretty soft and we couldn’t get our flatbed back where the Wrangler had gotten stuck. So, we brought in a Kubota fitted with treads instead of wheels. With the treads evenly distributing the weight, the Kubota stayed out of the muck and winched the Wrangler out.
In fact, we did a bit of digging after the recovery and Carmax reported that 25% of the vehicles they sell have 4WD or AWD and very few of these every leave the road. So, kudo’s to the driver of the Wrangler. She might have gotten stuck, but she did it in style. We loved being called to go help out. So, to all you guys and gals who want to go four wheeling with your trucks are SUV. Keep Byer Wreckers number in your glove compartment. We will be out there in no time.
Details of Heavy Duty Towing and Recovery of Jeep Wrangler
Heavy Duty Towing was needed when Byers Wrecker received a call for a 2019 Jeep Wrangler that had gotten stuck deep in the near the powerlines in Ortonville. Byers Wrecker received the call and sent two flatbed tow trucks and a Kubota fitted with treads. The heavy duty towing team from Byers arrived to find out that the ground was soft. The heavy duty towing team tried driving the flatbed out to winch it in, but as they figured out the ground was as soft as they anticipated. The heavy duty towing team unloaded the Kubota with the treads. The heavy duty towing team then released the winch from the Kubota and walked it out to the Jeep. The heavy duty towing team member then winched Jeep Wrangler slowly out of the much. This wasn’t easy as it was buried up to the frame. The Jeep slowly inched its way out of the muck. Once the Jeep was free, the heavy duty towing team attached the Kubota to the flatbed that was about one hundred feet away. The Kubota with the Jeep behind it moved its way out of the muck and mud. Once the Jeep was out of the much, and covered in mud, the owner sat down in the Jeep and drove it away. The heavy duty towing team then lowered the ramp of the flatbed and drive the Kubota up, so the heavy duty towing team could return.
