Heavy Towing San Antonio I-10 & Highway 46

Heavy Towing in San Antonio: Saves Time and Money

Sometimes providing heavy towing in San Antonio is just a matter of careful and clear thinking. This week just by being smart, we prevented a gravel hauler from a serious rollover.  The gravel hauler was at a construction culvert in Boerne, TX close to I-10 and Highway 46.  The hauler was leaning over, nearly ready to rollover. 

First, we had to prevent the rollover. We positioned our two heavy wreckers to slide his truck trailer and 84k lb load back onto the road. We strapped it up and secured it from falling.  That was just the first step. It was a bit tricky and took less than an hour. 

Now, the truck was leaning far to the left so far that the fuel had collected on the driver side fuel tank. This meant that the fuel feed on the passenger side wasn’t getting any diesel.   Without fuel, the truck couldn’t power itself and get itself out of trouble. So, we primed the engine.   We took a diesel transfer pump and moved fuel from one side to the other side.  The engine rolled to life. A driver got in the semi and drove it forward with the straps connected to the two heavy wreckers, so it wouldn’t fall over.

A diesel engine without fuel isn’t going anywhere. The supervisor walked over to his wrecker that he had brought to the scene. He pulled out a diesel transfer pump. He took diesel fuel from the passenger side tank. He moved that fuel to the passenger side tank that was bone dry.   The supervisor also primed the engine and delivered a quick shot of starting fluid.
