Jerr-Dan is introducing a new side stabilizer and new remote control enhancements.

Jerr-Dan Corporation, a manufacturer of towing and recovery equipment, is introducing a new side stabilizer and new remote control enhancements.

The new Jerr-Dan Side Stabilization (SS70) equipment is for heavy duty wrecker units. The company says the SS70 features 37,000 pounds of Rated Structural Capacity, hydraulic legs that can be controlled from the driver and passenger side control stations, a side-to-side leveling capability of up to 5.5 degrees, pivoting feet and 4 D-Rings for rigging.

With two mounting options, a forward position behind the cab and a rear mounting position in front of the pedestal, the SS70 provides more stability to the truck during recovery and improves performance during towing, when operated within product guidelines, Jerr-Dan said.

“The new side stabilization option allows operators to put more counterweight forward for enhanced towing performance and keeping the SS70 behind the pedestal creates enhanced stability,” said Mike VanAken, Jerr-Dan director of product management and marketing. “Additionally, the new option creates better stability throughout the entire range of motion in the boom.”

Jerr-Dan also relaunched an improved Heavy Duty Remote Control. The upgrades include an added winch engagement and two-speed functionality, along with color coordinated winch function paddles and a brightly colored housing for improved visibility. The remote features also include two rechargeable batteries, a charger and tether cable for wired control and trickle-charging.

“The upgrade for our wireless remote-control system is a natural evolution of the product,” VanAken said. “The new system reflects years of feedback from customers and accumulated engineering and manufacturing experience, all of which has allowed us to deliver a system that is effective to use with twice as many features.

“The new remote has the potential to increase productivity and it allows operators to position themselves in the most ideal location when recovering vehicles.”
