Not all the recent rain has made for a welcome environment, and one delivery van has learned a lesson about taking heavy vehicles on dirt roads in soggy conditions.
Vulcan Tilt Haulage was called in to rescue a supermarket deliver van bogged down in an uphill black-soil track.
Past experience helped save the day, with our truck left on solid ground and the area examined only to find that a tricky recovery was needed.
Luckily we were near a farm with a huge heavy machinery workshop, allowing us to enlist the help of an extra 8WD vehicle complete with a full set of diff and axle locks. Apart from lots of redistributed mud all 3 vehicles were quickly back on the bitumen. And yes, the home delivery run resumed after a bit of a hold-up.
