Our impressive heavy duty fleet

Hanifen takes pride in our state of the art heavy duty wrecker trucks. All of our heavy duty tow trucks have a 35-ton wrecker body with low rider under-reach that allows us more clearance and reach to tow any modern day truck on the road. Our heavy duty trucks add just one more dimension to our complete line of towing and recovery vehicles to service our customers.


Our 75-ton Hanifen Rotator

Our brand new 75-ton Hanifen Rotator features a boom that rotates a full 360 degrees to allow us to have more weight that can be transferred from the front axle when towing heavy loads as well as providing clearance over the rotator’s rear deck when towing vehicles with front overhang. The truck also has a low rider stinger, which helps get under low clearance front ends and has a lift capacity of 18,000 pounds at its fully extended reach of 165.5 inches.
