Difference Between Light and Heavy Towing 

Light and heavy towing refers to how much weight a specific truck could carry or haul. In specific towing circumstances, the weight, the distance, and the services needed for a vehicle are all factors in determining if you will need a light-duty or a heavy-duty truck to assist you. Light-duty trucks handle your more conventional towing needs such as towing small vehicles, assisting in an accident or collision in traffic, and towing away vehicles that have been abandoned. Light-duty trucks are easier to operate but they do not have the specialized tools needed for the more complex projects like heavy-duty trucks have. If any of these situations describes your circumstance, then a light-duty truck is the one for you. 


On the other hand, heavy-duty trucks handle more of the bigger, commercial vehicle side of things. The main vehicles that the heavy-duty trucks will tow are vehicles such as garbage trucks, construction equipment, dump trucks, and various construction equipment. Due to the size and weight of the heavy-duty trucks, it allows for them to be able to tow larger vehicles fairly easily and quickly. These trucks also have more advanced equipment to be able to accomplish bigger towing tasks and handle other situations that could arise on the road. Unlike the light-duty trucks, these trucks require experienced and advanced drivers to operate them. There are specific techniques in driving and towing with these vehicles so it is important to have specialized training before operating them. 

What is Heavy Recovery?

When there has been a rollover or a vehicle has slid off the road due to weather conditions, driving too fast, or an accident - heavy recovery is the process of recovering these vehicles with specialized equipment. Heavy recovery is usually utilized when it is larger vehicles that need to be recovered, such as trucks or buses. Because these larger vehicles have more momentum, they are more prone to fly further off the road. Other smaller vehicles can get stuck as well, especially when traveling on rocky and unpaved roads. With these unstandard roads, many towing companies will insist that you use heavy recovery towing to help get your vehicle to safety. Fortunately, Sunkiss has all the equipment necessary to assist in these situations.
