Heavy equipment towing is far different than simply towing a car. Towing heavy equipment involves specialized trucks and gear to move construction equipment, industrial machinery, semi-trucks, and other oversized loads. The precise equipment needed varies depending on what is being moved. Towing shipping containers or boats requires different towing equipment than you would need for towing a school bus or a tractor. This is where Elite Towing & Transport Inc. can come to your aid.
Types of Heavy Equipment Towing
Heavy-duty towing is usually broken down into two categories depending on whether the item being towed has wheels or not. If it has wheels, for example, a bus or an RV, wheel lift towing can be used. This is the same style as normal car towing, just greater in scale, lifting one set of wheels onto the back of the truck while the others remain on the road.
For large loads that lack wheels, such as shipping containers or construction equipment with treads, flat-bed towing is the option of choice. If the vehicle in question lacks treads, a crane may be required to lift it onto the flatbed.
