    25:33 I would have unhooked it, let those ppl pass and hook it back. Some chocks on the wheels would be wise in this scenario I guess.

    Good condition Toyota tundra, ran when parked, fresh wash., it just breaks the heart that such a beautiful truck ended way too soon. I hope someone grabs it off the salvage yard and gives her a new lease on life.

      Go ask a good old boy for a ride along. Tell him you'll help if needed and stay outta his way. It isn't for everyone, late nights, holidays, weekends, actual danger...guy our way was hit and pinned between the truck and car, lost both his legs.
      It isn't always bad, isn't always good, but you meet plenty of nice people, few jerks, and sometimes you'll walk in the door and thank Providence, God, or the Universe you made it back home. It takes a calm mind, experience, and plenty of pre-planning to get the hard ones done safely and that come from being on the job and watching the old timers do it.

    Liable is here a term in jurisdiction. Laws.
    Towing hooks from factory are counted on Euro and Asian cars. Usually without overrun brake on the trailer 3/4 ton/750KG, with x 3.5 Should be spelled in the car manual. And the title.

    how much does one of those trucks weigh?

    • McGyver777ATGMAIL
      McGyver777ATGMAIL 4 days ago

      That isn't really the half of it. When they get water in them they get extremely heavy. Water is approx 7.8lbs a gallon and think how many can get in the dang thing while it sits there and soaks it all in. That is why a tow hitch which would normal tow 6,000lbs without blinking can snap like a little twig when pulling out of water. You'll see plenty open doors (or if inverted, break windows) when the vehicle is barely out to let as much water weight out ASAP.

    If it's a gas engine, take out all the spark plugs. If it's a diesel, take out the glow plugs. Turn it over a few times to get rid of any water in the cylinders. Put the plugs back, and try to start 'er.

      also change the engine oil transmission fluid and power steering fluid. Then if everything works take it on a nice long driver to get rid of any remaining water. That's only if the engine was not running when it hit the water.

    • McGyver777ATGMAIL

      It depends if it got the ECU and wiring harness and what the mechanic says. There is a really good chance that it will be a salvage title from now on even if they don't "pay" him for it due to water damage. State to state regulations also come into play, you could honestly get away with not reporting some single vehicle accidents like this in some conditions, reason why Carfax isn't always the whole story.

    To all my fellow 4x4 owners. Your 4x4 isn't a boat it might handle like a boat but it can't swim. Stop trying to make your Toyota swim, it is expensive and often embarrassing. The only Toyota that can swim is the Top Gear ToyBoata. It's off road handling suffered for it.

    The front axle of the drives is that a just a tag axle. Most rotaters I’ve seen are tri-drives.

    poor ol boy. i think tundras are butt ugly, but he clearly likes his. just looking at it, it could probably make it back on the road without to many issues. pull the plugs, crank the water out of it, drain and refill all the fluids, and cross you finger no electronics got soaked to bad, or it was running when he hit and sucked up water and bent a rod. we had a hulcher 6.7 f350 at work that was totally submerged, and though the insurance company totalled it, it drove into the shop.

    An enjoyable wee rescue in the middle of a little shower Ron, but as always, I thoroughly enjoyed the video, thank you for sharing, God Bless, Stay Safe.
    As to Molly, she went back for her first of 8 weekly check up's at the Vets, she had to be sedated, while the Vet removed the Fibreglass cast from her leg to check on the wound, and everything was as he hoped and expected, he was also pleased with the wound where he took the bone from her shoulder, all in all, Molly is doing well, she is not too happy at her strict Cage rest though, but it's the only way to ensure the bone graft will take, I thank you all for your kind words, for anyone interested in how well Molly is doing, I'm on facebook where I give regular updates on Molly, Thank You.

    While I hope I never need your services, I am so impressed with your professionalism and knowledge / skill on how to extract , flip, twist, roll, lift whatever we dumb@$$ drivers screw up. Never expected to watch so many videos about wrecks but have to say I now look at the rigs running down the highway to see if it a rotator or not. Thank you for making these videos and for all you and your crew does helping folks in bad situations.

    Feel so bad for the Tundra owner. I’m sure we was never expecting for that to happen.
    Amazed that the remote worked from that distance in a driving rainstorm. Guess that’s a testament to Miller as to the high level of quality in their equipment.

    The 'Tator again impresses! I've watched other rotator towing videos and see operators out there with barely any equipment loaded on their trucks. I'd be more like you, Ron, loading everything I can possibly need for a job. If you go minimalist, you've got to be really sure about what you are going to be doing and how you are going to do it. Equipment gives you options. To me, there are few worse feelings than knowing I have exactly the right tool for the job, back at the shop an hour or more away.

    Video request?!
    Below I listed some video ideas, that I would personally love to see!
    • I’d love to see the process of touching up paint on those trucks, the removable of attachments, painting them, before and after video of the touch up paint.
    •I’d also like to see the process of despooling a winch, and learn more about the winch and winch lines.
    • why & when-> to use chains vs rope.. maybe give some examples when you would use rope and when you’d use chains, and also tie down methods.
    I know how hard video ideas can be, so here’s a few if you find them interesting!
    Love the videos, keep it up!

    Hey Ron...
    Great video...
    Can you share which curvy road this is since you said you love riding your bike on it...
    I'm sure i haven't ridden on this road yet, since i mostly ride my bike north and west of Cape...
    I have not ridden much around the Scott City area yet....
    Always looking for Great roads to ride on here in Southeast Missouri...
    Hopefully this Nasty storm hitting the area now ( 5:20pm, 8/20/19) will pass soon and give us nice riding weather tomorrow and the rest of the week...
    Thanx for sharing...
    Andy......From Jackson...

      Route N and Roth Drive. There's also Route A between Chaffee and New Hamburg that is fun to ride. The bridge for PP is out right now or you could take either N or Roth to PP to 61 towards Benton then A to New Hamburg and back up to Chaffee. It's a nice little afternoon ride. Since the bridge on PP is out I take N or Roth (Roth is more dangerous) down to E and take E over to 61 then North to A. Not quite as nice but it's still a decent ride. Keep the rubber down. Stay safe and God bless.
