I found this gentleman's channel not too long ago and I have thoroughly enjoyed watching what he does. This job in particular was something else. A big hats off to the intrepid and knowledgable folks out there plying their trade and working hard, problem solving and helping others. I also enjoy learning about the people working with him and the equipment he uses.

Pretty cool watch. Thanks for posting it.

My boss is a big fan of this tow channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/TowmaterEthan

I got Matt's channel recommended one time, showed it to my boss and he has been hooked.
We have been watching a lot of them in the office.

I'll have to take a look at that channel you mentioned David. I think I may have had one of those come up once as he and his truck looks familiar and I think the video was him having to right a flipped tractor trailer(driver was injured) and he had to anchor to a tree off the side of the road for his crane and pulley system. I also like his channel introduction about keeping things family friendly. From what I've seen so far Matt keeps his channel clean too at least leading by example. I appreciate how calm and thoughtful and easy going he is when he's out working. Watching a dozen or more videos already and he certainly has a lot of knowledge and working knowledge of a lot of different things. I also like his problem solving and ingenuity.

Same here coasty. They seem to be the guys to call if you find yourself stranded with a broken vehicle and often times in weird situations ta boot. Check out his video of helping some guys whose vehicle had a sort of sink hole open up on them. Matt crawled down under it which gave me the heebee jeebees but he got it done.

Here's the sink hole video:

Must be very expensive to rescue those vehicles.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

He explained in one video how they charge for jobs. Part of it is a percentage they charge for the distance to the job they have to drive. The video above with the sink hole accident I think was a 3+ hour drive for him to get there alone. Another video he speaks about the one and only time so far a customer refused to pay. I'm not sure how they figure it all out but I image just getting yanked out of the sand or mud is not too much compared to some precarious scenario.
