ABOUT THE 50 TON ROTATING WRECKER
The CBR 50 has the ultimate mix of towing and recovery capabilities. With the added capabilities of a 50 ton rotating recovery boom and an underlift rating of 50,000 lbs you can accomplish more with one truck. The 3 stage boom has 264” of extension and a reach of 270” off the tailboard. We use our 135” independent underlift on our rotators. They can lift up to 50,000 lbs fully retracted and 14,000 lbs at 135” extension.
Standard winching power is 70,000 lbs split between to 35,000 lbs Ramsey 2 speed winches. We can also add 2- 20,000 lb, boom mounted, auxiliary winches for more control. If you are looking for pulling power then adding a 35,000 lb or 50,000 lb drag winch is a perfect option for you.
We recommend a 330” wheelbase for our CBR 50 Ton Rotating wreckers. Tandem axle plus a steerable tag axle is required for this rotator. This allows for proper placement of the out riggers and gives you proper axle weights. We offer many different layouts for our tool boxes and pride ourselves on “Custom Built” bedsides and boxes. Many safety features can be added to your truck during the build process. LED tool box lighting, multiple control panels and remote controls are some of the standard features. We suggest a “passenger side” tool box layout for most of our trucks that will keep you and your employees on the right side of your truck in normal towing situations. By keeping your common towing items such as chains, axle straps, lights and hoses on the non-traffic side of your truck you reduce your risk of accident.
OPTIONS TO CONSIDER WHEN BUILDING YOUR 50 TON WRECKER:
- Tool box– we can add a stainless steel tool multi drawer tool box to one of your bedside compartments to keep your tools and fittings organized.
- Stainless Steel appearance package– Add a little bling to your truck. Our stainless package typically runs the full length of your bedsides on the top and bottom rail as well as on the main boom and the rear of the under reach.
- Dri Deck– Dri Deck is a great way to protect your bed side’s boxes and keep your tool and accessories off the bottom of the boxes. We will cut Dri Deck to fit all of your boxes.
- Air Shift PTO– The convenience and ease of an air shift PTO is well worth the investment. We recommend air shift PTO’s for all of our units to reduce maintenance and repairs in the future.
- Tunnel Boxes– The added storage of a tunnel box is great for long handled items like shovels or brooms. It is also a great place for cribbing or a 48” light bar. These can be added to most trucks with adequate wheel base.
- Side Puller– If you are looking for some added recovery capabilities this is the perfect option for you. With two options of either 12,000 or 20,000lbs capacities and 24” of boom extension on each side, our side puller will complete your trucks recovery capabilities.
- Towing Forks– When you purchase a new wrecker from Custom Built we will supply you with one set of rear safety chains and a few sets of forks and receivers of your choosing.
- Towing Accessories- Custom Built can offer you many types of accessories and kits to get your truck ready for work. Common kits include our “Ready to Tow” and “Ready for Recovery” kits.
