Tow Trucks News, Videos, and Information

If you’ve ever had your car break down, you’ve no doubt had to call upon the services of a tow truck. Also known as a wrecker, a breakdown truck, a recovery vehicle or a breakdown lorry, tow trucks are used to move vehicles that cannot be moved on their own. In addition to cars involved in an accident, improperly parked or impounded cars also may find themselves towed to a new location. There are five general types of tow truck: boom, which is often use to recover vehicles from ditches or embankments; wheel-lift, which fits a large metal yoke under the vehicle’s wheels; integrated, which combines boom and wheel-lift integration into one unit; flatbed, also called a rollback or slide; and lift-flatbed, which uses a wheel-lift frame to lift the vehicle vertically. This type of flatbed can remove vehicles that are parallel-parked. Construction Equipment Guide’s website has used tow trucks by Chevrolet, GMC, Kenworth, Nissan and Peterbilt, among others, to help in your search to purchase a used tow truck. You can find new and used tow trucks for sale from the leading equipment manufacturers right here.
