Clean and Simple

    Clean and SimpleThis is our daily on-call truck. Nothing fancy, but clean and simple. She is 2014 Freightliner M2-EC, Cummins engine, air brakes and air ride suspension.

    The truck is equipped with an LCG Century RA, side winch and a Chevron Autogrip 2 with fully wireless remote control. It has a drop visor, full LEDs all around (and behind the headboard) and full-size storage boxes with trays on both size.

    She’s not 100 percent loaded, but she does the job and she does it well with respect from our customers.

    BlueWe enjoy reading all the articles in your magazine each month. It is very informative and entertaining. We especially enjoy “A Tow Dog’s Life.”

    Blue is a two-year-old miniature Blue Heeler. He is head of our public relations and security division at Greenland Auto Salvage & Wrecker. Blue loves to ride in the wreckers and is ready to go at a moment’s notice. Sometimes we think he prefers to go on a call rather than eat since he will pass up a treat when he hears a wrecker start up.

    He especially likes off-road recovery calls for the possibility of an occasional swim or playing chase with squirrels.

    When he’s not on a call he hangs out in the office to greet customers, practice bringing in winch straps and brush-up on his squirrel-chasing techniques by chasing tennis balls.
