In today's video Trent jr and his eager crew load up 2 trailers worth of crane counterweights that we have been storing for a few weeks now. Trent jr tries a different rigging technique to try different methods. Watch as Trent Jr operates the truck and his eager crew helps him place the weights and rig. Enjoy

- - - - Frequently Asked Questions - - - -
Q:What camera do you use?
A: I use the Go Pro Hero 7 Black Edition primarily. Often times you will see auxillary cameras in use. Those cameras include The Go Pro Hero 6, Hero, and DJI Mavic Pro Platinum

Q: How big Is your rotator?
A: It is a 50 ton Miller Industries Vulcan 950

Q: Does the carriage slide back like Ron Pratt's?
A: No, the carriage doesn't slide back due to strict weight laws in California. The sliding carriage will make the truck to heavy in CA

Q: Why do you only have 3 winches on the rotator?
A: Comes down to weight again as stated above

Q: How many trucks Does Plaza Towing have?
A: Currently more than 30

Q: Why must the driveshaft be removed to tow a vehicle?
A: When vehicles are not running the transmission is not receiving circulating lubricant. If the driveshaft is left installed, the transmission, which is not receiving lubricant, is still spinning. This allows it to get very hot which eventually will cause major damage to the transmission. Therefore, removing the driveshaft completely eliminates the transmission from spinning. Simply leaving it in neutral is not sufficient since the transmission still spins in neutral.

      Question why didn’t you guys but the cable on the D rings on the boom like Ron does instead of hooking it to another line?

      Doing it this way provides even loading of the boom. If you simply hook it to a d ring you are loading one side of the boom more than the other creating unnecessary torque on the boom. That is because unlike a crane there are 2 cables side by side rather than on top of each other. If you have an application where 2 hooks are needed on the rotator the way you described would be acceptable but if you only need 1 hook but doubled up it is best to marry the lines together as Trent jr did to provide even boom load. Hopefully that makes sense. Great question

      It’s awesome to see how you and your team work so well together. I also like to see that you can take command and get mad at them for doing something while you are running the rotator and they respect you even though you are younger than they are.

      Snatch block also makes it a little easier on the winches.

      I personally love the way you guys left stuff with the rotator like the crane Parts I think that's pretty cool. But I was wondering what was the CHP doing in your yard did they misplaced one of their service pistols in one of the cars you guys told or something?

      YouTube thumbnail: tow truck lifting something heavy.🤔

      10 minutes later it dawns on me “ I’m watching a video about a tow truck? WTH?!

      30 minutes later... “can’t seem to stop watching a video of a tow truck lifting things”

      25 minutes later.... “Wow! That was a great video!”

      Now I’m hooked!

      I have the same affliction.
      One of their videos popped up in my recommendations a couple days back and I can't stop watching. Must have watched 2 dozen videos since then.

      Better than a TV show with producer added drama.

      Why did you guys have Link Belt crane counter weights in your yard to ship out to begin with? Part of a crane accident or something? Love the new truck. Be safe!!!

      Tag Lines... items being lifted should have at least one guide 'rope' attached to it to aid in rotation control while lifted. Good to see you put one in after that first lift. Suspended items should not have persons close enough to it to touch. Rotators are so versatile.. amazing utility they offer for recovery and general lifting work.

      Great video. Me personally I would have turned the truck around so you're swinging over the back of the trailer and not the cab of the truck. This also keeps you from having to swing over the weights already on the trailer. Personal preference. Keep up the good work.

      Possibly Unfortunately there’s no where to fork the weights.

      He's said in the comments of a past video that lifting the tires is recommended by the manufacturer as it increases stability.
