This spectrum of towing refers to conventional/wheel lift towing of vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating [GVWR] of 10,000 lbs or less. This covers all passenger cars, most pickups and vans up to ¾ ton rating and a small number of 1 ton rated trucks. Some loaded vehicle situations can require a truck or van in this range to need medium duty equipment for towing safely & legally. These trucks also are able to do extractions and recoveries when your vehicle is stuck.
