Side Recovery System

Carrier SRS

Our standard-duty Side Recovery System (SRS) for carriers is designed to make your carrier the most profitable carrier in your fleet. Answer every call—whether it be just a tow or a severe recovery—with confidence because you have the right equipment to handle the job. Jerr-Dan’s 8,000 lb. and 10,000 lb. Side Recovery Systems are by far the largest and strongest in the industry, and the boom swivel feature allows the operator to set up either driver or passenger side pulls in no time. The patent-pending Independent Hide-Away Flip down Claw/Spade with Dual Stabilizing creates a solid foundation for any type surface, and assures the utmost stabilization. Unlike the competition, this unit will also allow for front, side or rear pulls, making it the most versatile unit in the industry.
