As the name suggest, a tow truck is a kind of vehicle that is used to carry vehicles from one place to another. The purpose of carrying the motor vehicle cannot be same always. We can use them as used car carriers. Heavy duty tow trucks are in demand, these days. These heavy duty trucks are used to carry good amount of load. In order to take a vehicle for repair in a garage, we need such truck. Even truck accessories are carried from one place to another by means of truck. The used truck can be sold once again if it has its features intact. Self loader truckers are always preferred in market as driver can self load the vehicle that is needed to be carried by the tow truck.
The equipment to be towed in a tow trucker is many in number. Those are boom, hook and chain, wheel lift, flatbed and integrated. A boom that is adjustable can be used for vehicles that are ditched or located in an embankment. It is good for used car carriers.
Hook and chain is used in this truck in order to give a proper support to the vehicle and to avoid accidents. Important equipment is a wheel lift. It is technologically better than hook and chain and can carry truck accessories and other motor vehicles. Flatbed is a technology, where the entire flat body of the truck is slide down in order to help the motor vehicle climbing up as a self loader. Again the equipment called “integrated” combines both boom and wheel lift. Since it is the combination of both, it is technologically very improved. Used light duty tow trucks can be possessed again to run the show.
Ford super duty trucks are exclusively used for commercial purpose. The models like F-250, F-250HD, F-350 are available in market. Yet there is another model Ford F-550, where we get a solid axle. With respect to front suspension, Dana 60 has been used for F-450 and ford F-550 till 2005, but now we have changed the leaf springs to coil. Moreover a sway bar is added to it. Now the businessmen with such truck business prefer used tow trucks, as those can be purchased for a lower amount.
Used medium duty trucks are also available with number of dealers. As compared with heavy duty trucks, used medium duty trucks are quite affordable and are useful for the businessmen who are just starting their business. Again we cannot ignore the usefulness of used light duty tow trucks, which are also of great demand in market.
