Santa Rosa

Towing & Recovery--never a dull moment.

Earlier this week I received a call to go recover a riding lawnmower in the north part of Santa Rosa. I headed up that way and was advised by dispatch that the company that had called me, mentioned that i would have to go about an 1/8 of a mile off the road to the lake to get this lawn mower. Well, the reason this was necessary is that the lawnmower had driven/slipped into the lake up there and was not easily accessible. They wanted to know if I could bring about a 150 feet of 'cable". Well, two of the Yarbrough Bros Towing Wreckers have just about that much.

Safe Towing Capacity & limits.

As i was out towing in Santa Rosa the other day, one of the calls i was on was for a Dodge BR3500 dually truck that had a utility bed on it. As i was talking to the company driver of that truck while i was hooking up to it with my Medium Duty Tow Truck, the driver stated that he was "glad you guys could do this tow cuz the road club said it was too big".
