Now you know why you sometimes get a new MV from auction and wonder "how did they get mud up into that crevice"? I'm completely against abuse of MV's but sometimes it happens.

    Same as always Sir, Soldiers who got their truck stuck. We make the connection once the heavy cable is pulled out!

    The Wings Over the Rockies Museum in Denver, CO needed their Huey, UH-1M I was told, moved from a corner in the museum where it sat on a trailer to a new prominent spot among the Vietnam era fighters. M936A2 to the rescue. Attached a small shackle and I mean small to the "Jesus" nut eyelet. You won't believe that the small shackle I borrowed from my 1948 Ford 8N tractor could hold the load. They backed the trailer and Huey into its spot. A Vietnam Huey pilot told me the weight as the bird sat was about 8300 lbs. Put the outriggers out and the old 5 ton lifted the chopper with ease. Raised it about two feet, they pulled the trailer out and I put it back down on the exact spot they wanted. The GoPro exaggerates the lean angle of the boom. The tip of the boom only went down about 10 inches with the full weight of the helo on the hook. This is the second helo I have lifted with this wrecker. The first was the OH-58 Kiowa the Army National Guard donated to our club. Pictures to follow.

    Now I have a smart phone and I still can't capture much action. My Soldiers dropped a truck off at CSMS South but it was muddy as could be so they had to re-hook and take it to the wash rack. They also brought in a HMMWV but I didn't take pictures because an M984A4 pulling a HMMWV seems kinda weak on this forum. As for the pictures, yes I know safety chains were not run and the only air line is the emergency so that they could release the brakes. They only took it from where they dropped it to the washrack and backed it into a maintenance bay in the motorpool. It had everything required before they dropped it the first time.
