Rescuing Bogged Delivery Vehicle in Emerald

Not all the recent rain has made for a welcome environment, and one delivery van learned a lesson about taking heavy vehicles on soggy dirt roads.

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.
