Semi Towing Team Rescues Tractor Trailer From a Corny Situation
Mission Wrecker prides itself on offering amazing semi towing services. Recently though, we had the chance to provide a-maize-ing service when a tractor-trailer loaded to the brim with corn cobs found itself stuck in the mud.
Easter weekend got off to a busy start for our semi towing team. Mission Wrecker remained booked with a variety of different calls, but one truly stood out from the rest. Our dispatch center received a call for semi towing services to rescue a tractor-trailer submerged in black mud.
Upon arriving at the scene, our semi towing team found a tractor-trailer stuck in thick, black mud up to the bottom floor of the trailer. While we normally inspect the contents of a trailer to make adjustments and determine the best tools of the trade, this load was a bit unexpected. Inside sat 55,000 lbs of corn. The massive weight of the haul certainly did not make this an easy semi towing job.
After a quick assessment, the Mission Wrecker semi towing team brought in the muscle. First, they attached cables from three 50-ton heavy wreckers to the trailer. Using over 160,000 pounds of brute force, the wreckers finally freed the truck. Once sprung from the mud, we used a skid steer to clean the mud from the roadway.
Despite being a “corny” job, Mission Wrecker was happy to help. We take pride in being your one-stop full-service towing and recovery company. When you have a job that is too big to handle on your own, make Mission Wrecker your first call. We have your back!
