Integrated towing is another method that is commonly used in the industry as it can provide better quality results under certain circumstances as compared to other methods. The integrated towing is performed using an integrated Bozeman Tow Truck, which is specifically designed for the purpose. These trucks have a number of different applications in the industry since they are commonly used for picking up illegally parked vehicles in the city. This reflects the convenience that these trucks provide while carrying out the towing of vehicles, which is the major reason why they are used in the city environment.
These trucks can also be used for on-demand towing services where they can be used for picking up cars, which have run into problems along the roadside. Similarly, they are also commonly used for heavy-duty purposes, which is another area of specialization. The use of integrated towing trucks in the heavy-duty area is mainly related to performing towing services for buses and rigs that need to be transported from one area to another. This shows that these trucks have significant strength and stability in performing towing services. Some of the common characteristics of integrated trucks as well as the process with the help of which they can be used for performing towing services have been explained in the subsequent sections.
The characteristics of integrated towing trucks
The integrated trucks are a combination of boom and wheel-lift mechanism for performing the towing process. These two mechanisms work in an integrated fashion, which makes it convenient to perform towing services. The integrated operation of the two mechanisms in these trucks can be used for the purpose of lifting heavy-duty vehicles conveniently and performing towing services in difficult situations as well. The function of the boom is close to the function of a crane since it can pick up vehicles standard at various places such as embankment, ditch, etc. while the wheel-lift mechanism utilizes a hydraulic technique where it picks up the front wheels of the vehicle in such a way that the towing of the vehicle can be conveniently carried out. Therefore, the integrated functioning of the two different mechanisms significantly increases the overall strength and stability of the integrated towing trucks making them suitable for use in different situations.
The process of carrying out integrated towing
In this process, the two mechanisms operate in an integrated manner so that an effective towing of vehicles can be carried out. Therefore, the steps involved in the procedure have been given below:
- In the first step, the boom mechanism of the truck is utilized for picking up the vehicle and placing it in a position where it is convenient to perform the towing process. Mostly, when the vehicles are wrongly parked then integrated trucks are used for picking them up.
- However, it is more convenient for these trucks to pick up the cars when they are placed in a parallel position. Therefore, the boom mechanisms can be used for changing the position of the vehicles.
- Once a position of the vehicle has been adjusted then the wheel-lift mechanism can be used for lifting the front or rear wheels of the vehicle for carrying out the towing.
- Once the connection with the vehicle has been made then it should be properly fastened so that it can be conveniently transferred from one place to another.
