Jerr-Dan Corporation, an Oshkosh Corporation company and a manufacturer of towing and recovery equipment, has introduced its new 50-Ton Integrated Wrecker. The large-capacity, integrated recovery and towing system features a 174-inch reach past the tailboard at 0 degrees, as well as a capacity of 30,000 pounds when fully extended at 30 degrees.
This wrecker delivers a long underlift, with a standard reach of 141 inches at 17,000 lbs. when fully extended and 53,000 lbs. when retracted. To handle the most difficult vehicles, such as motor coaches and firetrucks, the available coach boom offers a 180-inch reach and a capacity of 17,600 pounds at full extension, and 56,500 lbs. when fully retracted.
The Integrated Wrecker's positive vertical lift feature, which allows immediate clearance of under-chassis obstructions, enables easier pick-up of vehicles with low-positioned oil pans on the first lift, thereby avoiding “double picks.”
Incorporating a two-piece C-channel construction design, the wrecker boom offers lighter weight without sacrificing strength or performance. The weight of the two-section boom, including the UL530 underlift is 23,500 lbs. — lighter than the model it replaces.
Corrosion-resistant composite body panels are more impact-resistant than steel, and the modular design allows for panel and section replacement that results in less expensive and easier repairs. Bonded body panels allow for flex, which reduces body stress and cracks.
The wrecker system is mounted directly to the chassis subframe, transferring forces and stresses away from the body. Jerr-Dan performs all required chassis frame alterations in-house. This wrecker also features twin 50,000-lb.-capacity DP winches.
