New Medium-Duty Storage Option from Miller Industries

MillerStorageOption 3070fMiller Industries has introduced a new option for storing the wheel grid adapters on Century® 3212, Vulcan® V-30, and Chevron™ 1016 medium-duty wreckers. The company said the new storage option provides convenient storage for both wheel grid adapters right at the back of the wrecker. Towmen can store wheel grid adapters right along with L-Arms and Scoops without having to use valuable tool box storage space to store the sizable wheel grids. The new storage brackets are available for new wreckers, as well as for retro-fit applications on existing wreckers.
