Jamie Davis’ Western Star Rotator Tow Truck – Highway Thru Hell – Tim Tosino

As seen at Trains 2014, a lot of people recognized the above MOC from the Discovery Channel (Canada) television show Highway Thru Hell. A rotator is the heaviest tow truck on the road, in fact it is so heavy its actual towing capacity is very limited. Its main function is a highly mobile boom lift arm that can lift whole wrecks up vertically.

Some things Tim will add in the future are a 3rd winch line on the deck, visors for the front windscreen and getting more parts in yellow for the boom arm.  Tim hopes to have the whole heavy rescue fleet (HR 52 and HR- 120) built in time for Surrey 2015.
