Bobcat goes up in flames during Springfied Heavy Towing

A bobcat burst into flames and a Springfield heavy towing company was needed. We got a call from a client in Springfield. They were doing some landscaping, moving dirt around and shoring up a few soft spots.   The bobcat overheated and literally burned up. As you can see it was a mess. We got the call about the damaged bobcat and drove near OR 222.  We brought in the a 6×6, Army truck allowed that could navigate the terrain and allows us to get in good and close. We took the army truck up an embankment overlooking the bobcat.  

The Springfield heavy towing effort of the bobcat was about an hour from beginning to end. Thanks to Greg for the great photos.

Details of the Springfield Heavy Towing of a Burned up Bobcat

A call came into T&M Towing and Recovery about a Bobcat near Springfield that had burned up doing some landscaping and Springfield heavy towing was needed.  The Springfield heavy towing team arrived at the location near OR222. The Springfield heavy towing team noticed the bobcat was hard to reach. The bobcat’s engine had combusted and couldn’t be driven.  The Springfield heavy towing team drove over the embankment. First, they drove the Army truck up with the front tires getting traction up the embankment. The power from the rear wheels powered the Army truck all the way to the top of the embankment.  Next, the Springfield heavy towing team collected the winch cable and extended it all the way down to the bobcat. In this way, they could avoid getting the Army truck stuck down below. The Springfield heavy towing team member grabbed the hook attached to the winch cable and took step after step down to the bobcat. He hooked it onto the bobcat’s frame. The Springfield heavy towing team member then walked backed up the embankment to the 6×6, Army truck.  He then activated the winch. The bobcat moved one foot. The bobcat then moved five feet. Slowlhy the Springfield heavy towing team member pulled the burned out bobcat up the embankment. This took nearly an hour as he did with extreme care. Once the bobcat was up the embankment, he then pulled the winch hook out of the bobcat. He then repositioned to allow the flatbed to get into position. Once the flatbed was lined up the Springfield heavy towing team member pulled the winch off the flatbed and attached it to the burned out bobcat. The bobcat inched up the ramp of the flatbed one foot.  The Springfield heavy towing team member pulled the bobcat all the way onto the flatbed. He then attached the bobcat with towing cables. First, he attached the front end of the bobcat. Then he attached the rear of the bobcat. The Springfield heavy towing team member then took the bobcat back to T&M’s towing lot.
