It looks like he uses Google to translate into English.

He is asking for a photo or drawing showing the top side of the mechanism for a rotating wrecker crane / boom. Specifically the part that allows the whole assembly to slide / rotate on the truck.

I think says he already has some photos of the type of wrecker he is looking for just nothing that shows that particular part of the unit.

I think he wants some detail photos of a unit like this.


I have several others of this particular truck, but unfortunately I don't have any showing the bits I think he is interested in.

Patrick, I don't think I have what you are looking for , but I do have some photos of wreckers here. Maybe something in there will be useful to you.

What Patrick is asking is if anyone has drawing or photos that show how the track or rail system on a sliding rotor wrecker are built. I have looked at several thousand wrecker photos and I have never seen the details he is asking for.

Here is one picture I found of a Metro 50 ton sliding rotator when I did a quick google search.


It looks like the crane base slides on beams/rails and there must be horizontal hydraulic ram/rams operating the slide.

Here is a forum about towtrucks with lots of pictures, have a look around and you might be helped more.
