Why Spenco Recovery Units?
Durability. Reliability. The power

you expect from a Spenco Recovery vehicle, and this is what we've
built into every unit bearing our name.
History / Background to
The gas crunch of the late '70s
marked the advent of aerodynamic cars, utilizing more and more
plastics in their design. Zacklift's inventor believed that towers
shouldn't have to buy a complete wrecker to have damage-free towing.
With this thought, the first add-on wheel and frame lift was
engineered. Those first Zacklift customers were pioneers as well.
Not only did they have to be sold on the idea of a Zacklift, they
had to learn what an underlift was. The basic design of the Zacklift
is something that has stood the test of time. The three function,
30° tilt, 0° load angle engineering has remain Zacklift's core. 20
years later, this design can be found in Zacklift's newest
innovation; the 2003 "Fifthwheeler." This product retrofits any size
Zacklift to a tractor's fifth wheel plate. Today, every rating and
reach of Zacklift can be mounded either as permanent or removable.
Choices include extended ratings to 40,000 pounds and reaches to 147
Zacklift underlifts mount on any
chassis, make or model; bare frame or a conventional wrecker.
Location from ground & tailboard positioning of the critical tilt
cylinder, and all elements of the mounting, have been carefully
pre-engineered so that the Zacklift can be easily self-installed.
