With the right operator, it can basically recover any type of vehicle from just about any type of situation.

The 365 foot (fully extended) boom rotates a full 360 degrees. Minimum angle of 0 degress with a maxium angle of 51 degrees. When the boom is retracted, it can pull 129,000lbs. Fully extended, the boom can pull 44,000lbs. It can pull 68,000lbs. from the side. The truck has an awesome outrigger spread.

For towing, it can handle a vehicle up to 80,000lbs.

Some of the features can be operated by remote control.

It's powered by a Cummins ITX 550HP.

365 feet, huh Seth?? ohmy.gif

Better double check those specs!!

I would LOVE to see something reach that far, especially when top of the line Aerials top out around 135-145'.

That's A Beast.

Does anyone know how busy this company is ? They must have a great budget.


They are extremly busy.....they perform recovery services throughout the Hudson Valley.....they've recovered cars, trucks, boats, even planes. They also provide training and assistance to local FD's and a wide variety of other service, including HELP Trucks, Heavy Airbags, Roadside Assistance, Flatbed services, Heavy Equipment Hauling, Lowboy/Landoll trailers, emergency vehicle outfitting, automotive and truck repair and bodyshop, etc etc.........there will be a bunch of action shots posted on Stiloskis.com soon.

Because Seth is a truck afficianado. He seems to like the big toys, especially ones that can be of assistance to the local Emergency Services folks. Think of it as a very big toy in the toybox of equipment that the Hudson Valley people can call upon if needed. And finally, and most obvious, it's his site.

Why not? It is a resource that is available. John spends countless hours assisting all emergency services whether it's donating salvaged vehicles or his staff and equipment for training. I can't think of many FD's or PD's that operate a heavy tow for recovery. It is nice to see that this new truck and it's capabilities are highlighted. Best of luck with it.

2nd axle back is a steering axle, so it's not that bad. John's already manuvered it in some pretty tight spots.
