Above are some pictures of a Chevy 3500 HD dually being straightened. It is a dual-direction pull on the passenger-side rail for sway and length because it was pushed over and back. It’s being held on the driver side

Another common occurrence is a driver catching the frame rail when they pull away from the semi-trailer. Or, the frame rail gets mangled due to an unhooking mishap in transit. If severe enough, this can affect the rear axle alignment or rear suspension and then translate into poor tire wear or other problems down the road. Besides straightening the rail, Don has 20 years of experience fixing cosmetic humps in the rail as well.

Above is a Peterbilt dump truck that was twisted and off-level (the dump box and rams were removed). A twist is a very common occurrence with dump trucks; it happens when a truck ends up in a ditch or rolls over.

The reason this truck is on such an angle is because of the tremendous pressure under which it had to be put because it had a 3/8″ thick, double-rail frame. This was able to be straightened in a matter of two and ½ days because of the Blackhawk’s ability to multi-task, push and pull, as well as its heavy-duty hydraulic ram capability. Each chain is rated at 25 tons as are the hydraulic rams. (Reminder: 1 ton = 2,000 lbs.) All-in-all, this truck was under 10,000 lbs. of pressure.
