Yesterday I paid my first visit to the annual Empire State Towing and Recovery Association annual show in Lake George, NY. The natural beauty of the area is only surpassed by the amazing rigs of tow operators from across the state. The entire spectrum of towing equipment was on display from massive 75 ton rotators to the do-it-all flatbeds you most likely see each day on the highway.
Check out the gallery below for the ultimate in recovery vehicles.
Now that you have feasted on some photos how about a video of a twin steer Freightliner Coronado SD? This is an axle setup you simply don’t see much of in New York but is very popular just over the border in Canada and apparently Vermont.
Thanks to Dan and Kevin for making the trip with me but more importantly, thanks to all the tow operators who help keep our highways and biways safe for travel. Please keep an eye out of for them and give them the room they need to make it home alive! Remember, in NYS it’s the law to move over!
