With the support of Morton’s Towing & Recovery and JaegerTech Corp, MFC International successfully conducted a demonstration exercise for our range of Airlift Cushions and Catch Bags in Maryland USA this week.
MFC Airlift cushions provide an exceptionally strong and steady lift whilst uniformly distributing pressure, thanks to their large contact area. MFC International Catch Bags are designed to be used in conjunction with Airlift Cushions and Bags during the up-righting of vehicles and large objects. The Catch bags are designed to prevent a rapid and dangerous decent, helping to prevent further damage to the recovered vehicle, and for the safety of the crew working on the scene.
To demonstrate how to safely and precisely recover an overturned vehicle, we went to Morton’s Towing & Recovery in Clarksburg and using a combination of MFC Airlift Cushions and Catch Bags, we were able to successfully upright a 27 Ton cement truck. Our new Catch Bags worked even better than expected, with an exceptionally soft catch that ensured the trucks smooth return to the tarmac.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Morton's Towing, to David Morton, John Collins and all of the team on the ground who’s hard work and professionalism made this exercise such a success. Specialist controllers, hose systems and compressors were supplied by our US dealer JaegerTech Corp and we would like to extend our thanks to both Jim Jaeger and Tony Testa.
