Proper maintenance goes a long way to ensuring your equipment works efficiently and dependably. In a 24/7 towing and recovery industry, it can be challenging to make sure each maintenance step is performed on time and the right way. This is especially the case if you are a towing company that owns multiple units across different models of heavy-duty wreckers and rotators. This video aims to help by demonstrating how to properly lubricate 3-stage recovery booms found on the Century®️ and Vulcan®️ heavy-duty integrated wreckers and rotators.
