Heavy Towing Holly Hill Team Pulls Semi Out of Sugar-Sand

The Heavy Towing Holly Hill Team Makes Slight Work of Semi Stuck in Sugar-Sand

When you get stuck, sometimes the solution is a pull from Universal’s heavy towing Holly Hill team. A semi driver found this to be extremely true after becoming stranded on the side of the road. With a little help from Universal Towing Daytona, he was on his way in no time at all.

Recently, our heavy towing Holly Hill team received a call from a long-time client in need of a pull. The semi’s driver moved over too far on the road, running up the curb and into tricky terrain. When he tried to accelerate to return to the roadway, the driver’s wheels sunk deeper into the sugar-sand. 

Every Floridian knows the peril encountered when sugar-sand is present. The soft dirt and sand combination make for a quicksand-like effect. No vehicle, let alone a fifty-three-foot tractor-trailer, stands a chance when sugar-sand comes into play. With each pump of the gas pedal, the wheels of the truck submerged themselves further. 

Upon arrival at Plymouth Avenue in DeLand, Florida, our heavy towing Holly Hill team went straight to work. First, we rigged cables to the tow hook on the front of the marooned truck. Then, using our fifty-ton heavy wrecker, we slowly pulled the big rig out of the sugar-sand and onto the road. Fortunately, neither the cab nor the trailer incurred any damage.

In a matter of forty-five minutes, Universal’s heavy towing Holly Hill team hauled the tractor-trailer out and sent it on its way. We recognize that sometimes a simple pull is all you need to keep business running smoothly.
