Working Show Truck Of The Month – Tom Baldwin/Ajaco Towing
By Robert Conrad
This month we shift gears and roll into spring and another winter is in the rear view mirror. It seems that the entire country was hit hard with some severe storms this past season. All of the truckers that had to drive thru these major storms certainly had their work cut out for them but deliveries can't wait for Mother Nature! Bad weather seems to bring equipment breakdowns with it along with accidents if the conditions are treacherous enough. Thankfully, we are fortunate to have a countrywide network of towing professionals that are ready for just about any type of problem that might occur out on the highways.
This month we are featuring a head-turning 2008 KW T-800 wrecker that is part of an impressive fleet of over 30 trucks belonging to NJ-based Ajaco Towing. Ajaco was established in 1991 and they offer a wide variety of services, including all types of towing & recovery, 24-hour roadside assistance, fleet services, parking enforcement, junk car removal, auto transport, and dealer-to-dealer transport.
Driver Tom Baldwin, seen in our photo with friend Natalie Shearstone, is one of Ajaco Towing's team of dedicated professionals who are ready to help any stranded drivers in a moment's notice. Tom has over 15 years of experience and can handle just about and type of towing or recovery situation with Ajaco's ticked-out T-800 that's equipped with a 9055 50 Ton wrecker body.
The truck's incredible paint job was done by the "Boyz down in Joplin" at 4 States Trucks-home of the infamous "Chrome Shop Mafia." The truck also has a polished visor, an angle-cut bumper, polished rims all around, a custom rear light bar, and LED lighting on both the cab and wrecker body. The truck's 585 Cummins engine provides plenty of power for both the local and long distance towing that Tom does for Ajaco.
When he's not out rescuing fellow truckers in distress, Tom enjoys bringing the truck to various truck shows and, yes, Natalie does help him with the polishing duties!
We at Movin' Out tip our hats to Ajaco Towing for all of the professional service and customer satisfaction they provide, no matter what type of situation they are met with. Their impressive fleet of custom trucks, especially Tom Baldwin's KW T-800 wrecker, will get you back up and running in no time! Congratulations to Tom Baldwin and Ajaco Towing for being selected as the Movin' Out Working Show Truck of the Month for April 2013.
