Dave Bland Engineering designed the flatbed carrier which was used by FMG to attempt this world record.
Years ago, Ramsey Winch changed the towing and recovery industry by introducing our hydraulic winch. In this world record attempt, the tow truck was equipped with a Ramsey hydraulic planetary winch - the RPH 42,2 (the equivalnet of the HD-P 10,000) - which was specifically selected for its toughness and reliability.
To qualify for the record attempt, the team of technicians neeeded to properly and fully load and unload a car onto the towing vehicle as many times as possible over 24 straight hours - a total of 703 times. This exceeded their expectations significantly.
During the 24-hour period, the recovery cable was winched in and out a distance of 4.6 miles. This particular winch was designed for increased line speed in vehicle recovery and features easy free-spooling as well as a single lubricant for all temperature ranges. The standard drum holds 115-feet of cable.
Since it's critically important for the winch and cable system used in towing and recovery to be dependable, Ramsey believes that the superior quality and rugged design of its winches can be trusted by customers of all sizes in the towing and recovery industry.
