  1. Greetings Al and Gordo,

    Really enjoy watching you guys work, especially on the most technically challenging jobs. The one where the logging truck and B trailer went flying off the logging road approx. a thousand feet down. Another is when you had your twin D-9’s & your custom cable/chain link up Gadget you made to pull that excavator/hoe out of the suction cup swamp, brutal.

    I have a lot of respect for Jamie Davis, the super nice guy. What I don’t get is him showing up to a job that needs heavy-duty, modern equipment with proper safety lighting, you know the kind you can see strobing from a good distance. Jamie shows up with the General and its orange vintage rotating beacons. The job requires two modern heavy-duty machines. Jamie shows up with an underpowered antique, it like the antique road showman!

    One time the winch cable barrel, gear-driven, gear exploded. No disrespect to Jamie but if I had a big ass job that needed a HEAVY DUTY wrecker I’d be calling you & Gordo. You’ve got the right gear and in my opinion the most skill. That Vulcan monster and the brand new rig Gord drives will get the toughest jobs done.

    Wishing you all the best Al, stay safe brother.

    Cheers man…✌️⛄️

  2. Hello Al,

    I really enjoy your show and the beautiful country you work in. Sure like when you got the D9 and D8 out for the tough ones. You have some good rigging for heavy pulling. I have been around Cat dozers all my life, at 52 I’m still running my father’s business of land clearing and excavating. I really like how you and your guys work, not all this yelling and drama like other shows, just pure expertise and the right equipment getting it done.

    Keep up the good work and look forward to seeing more challenges, be safe!


  3. Al, I am from a small town of Oakwood, Illinois. I just love watching you on the show. It looks so dangerous. I just wanted to say hello and God bless you and your family.

    The show has made me hyper-aware of slowing down around stationary service vehicles…whether on a city street or highway. And around road construction, electrical workers on poles, etc.

    It is horrifying to see how traffic barrels past the recovery trucks (Highway From Hell) and crews. Even truckers. Even when weather conditions are horrific. What is the matter with them? Everybody should watch a few episodes of this show. The recovery workers on wrecks are amazing. Lots of fun to see how they get it done in impossible cases.

  6. Would love to visit your area.beautiful scenery you and gord have a dangerous job but enjoyable or you wouldn’t do it. Have fun but stay safe
