different kind of kill

I was at work yesterday and was out in a plow truck(2002 f-350 gas with the 5.4) and managed to get stuck. The front drivers side tire fell through a sink hole in the snow, it was deep enough to pick up the rear passenger side tire off the ground. After a little digging I realized that the front tire was still about 2 feet from solid ground! I called to have a wrecker sent out to give me a pull, when the wrecker showed up he said that his the 5k would not be able to pull me out and had to call for the 15k wrecker. Once the other wrecker got there it took them 2 hours to pull me out. The entire suspesion was bottomed out and they thought that I twisted the frame because one side of the bed was 3 inches hire than the other side when looking at the cab. Luckily the truck was fine and once it was pulled out. The guys in the wreckers said that that was the first time they could not pull out a pickup truck with the 5k wrecker and they congratulated me on a job well done for getting it that stuck.

Gregor.. you are supposed to kill other trucks.. not the one you are driving.

At least it was a gasser, and not a PSD.. of course a PSD probably would have gotten itself out.

were they 5 and 15 K or 5 and 15 ton wreckers?
You were stuck like a mofo if a 5tonner couldnt get you, especially when you consider he prob had snach blocks, or he was a lazy bastard and just wanted somebody else to do it.

They were the 5 ton and 15 ton. It was the same wrecker that they use to tow our tanker trucks which are 28,000 pounds empty. Once the wrecker was in place they had to wrap chains around the frame and then hook a winch to the chain, when they started pulling with the winch they had to stop and have us move back because it looked a little unsafe. I am trying to get sopies of the pics that they took.

Can we say inexperinced wrecker drivers. If that is the first time they couldn't use a 5k winch to pull a truck out remind me not to call them. As most trucks wiegh over 5k they are doing highrisk vehicle recovery. Rule of thumb is the wieght of the vehicle doubled equals the size winch that should be used. So either they are comokossi wrecker drivers or they just inexperince and looking to break their equipment. At least the first guy was smart enough not to attempt it. Next time just call a powerstroke with a snatch strap to yank ya out.
