    Mr. Pratt I just recently found you video. Thank you for your hard work and caring for people and not just out there for the bucks. My late husband who recently died was law enforcement here in California - and now my daughter who is a EMT-firefighter "works the streets" they often said that some tow workers just don't care and just wants the money. Don't get me wrong we do have a few good faithful tow companies just wish there where more like your company. Some day I would love to see you company site. God Bless and be safe

    Hello from Germany. Just a question, when the cab of a tractor moved aside after jack-knifed, is it a posdsibility when you are there with the rotator to use it to replace the cab as far as possible?

    Wisconsin police officer here. They let you guys run red/blue lights and sirens down there in Missouri huh? Never seen that before. Does that require you to have a special license or certification or is it simply allowed by statute for all tow trucks to run that setup? Our tow guys run strictly amber/white and no sirens allowed.

      Exactly. I am a firefighter here in Ohio and I have never seen or heard of a tow truck running emergency lights and siren. Seems weird to me. I wonder of the tow truck drivers have to take a defensive training course or any kind of training like we do? Not to mention inspections.

      Chains can and will snap. There are different types and strengths of chains. The ones I use for recovery and lifting are grade 100 or higher and are inspected for damage on a regular basis. Standard chains for holding down loads, etc, are generally grade 50 or grade 70 transport chain and they are not designed for the type of work that we do. Thanks for watching and God bless.

      In the State of Missouri tow trucks, wreckers and recovery vehicles are considered EMERGENCY vehicles. Ron put a link in one of the comment threads. Edit found link... ALL tow and recovery vehicles in every State should have ALL the lights and sirens to run code. It would save the lives of many tow operators. We just lost a young tow truck driver of a family business Iodice Towing, being hit here in Connecticut RIP 🙏Cory.

    I appreciate the constant focus on the safety of the crew and the entire scene. Angling the tator as a blocker, despite it being the pride of the fleet, shows that safety of the crew is truly the #1 priority. A lot of companies do not operate this way.

    I love that he used this wreck as a teaching opportunity for the new young guy, it also made me appreciate his knowledge of towing stuff, for example I thought that it would have been better to pull from the center but I realized that the way they had it hooked took into account the weight of the trailer pushing down on the truck, simply put it, the trailer provided enough force to keep the truck straight.

    You should see about getting some kind of switch or something to put in the "10 and 2" positions of your steering wheel, one to control the air horn and the other to control the Q siren. That way you don't have to reach over to grab the siren switch or up to grab the horn rope and it'll let you continue to safely drive. (not that you aren't safely driving already, but it just helps to add safety to your already safe driving)

    Hi Ron, I just found you neat channel from way down south in the little country of New Zealand in the South Pacific. I've a great interest in trucking and find it very interesting to see you and your team managing and cleaning up the carnage to keep the interstates and road systems flowing in MO. I love your PB rotator! It sure is a super versatile machine and good to see you have a well organized storage system going, with everything in its own place. We have lots of KWs, Macks, W-Stars and Scanias down here, but not many of the rarer PBs. We have such crane towing beasts as yours, spread all around our 2 islands with towing companies, for rescuing the trucks that get themselves in strife, but they don't have sirens, just orange flashers. It's great to see the team work and cooperation with all the local county police, state police and the many fire crews in action. Our country of only 4.5Mill only has 1 nationalized, but 3 separate forces for the police, fire and ambulance services across the whole country, but we don't have separate county police. Keep safe and doing what you're doing. Cheers, David.

    Ron turns all this job into an art ! I've never seen anybody so focused and perfectionalist as he is in such a difficult occupation . While i was growing in my hometown in Greece ,in a city called Perama of Peiraius , i had access in several shipyards spamming the entire coastline of the city . As a kid in highschool , not very good with homework but always curious about cranes and stuff , often i was leaving school and went inside the biggest of shipyards called NAFSI ( Nuff-sea ) and i was introduced in all kinds of heavy lifting possibilities , from wheel cranes to caterpillar cranes and forklifts , i was always finding it way more interesting than a regular class day so i had too many absences ...LOL . Ron Pratt is like a superhero to me considering the amount of experience he must have to do all those things look like nothing out of the ordinary when it's not something everybody can do . You can have all the equipment , the trucks , the hooks , the control everything in your disposal but you can't predict how something will behave , when is gonna snap on you , or what direction it will take , Ron does that by instinct and knowledge on the subject and it's awesome to watch !
