360-Degree Surveillance with Infrared, Audio

45678 bec8aTowing supplier AW Direct recently introduced the Menzel Mobile Vehicle Surveillance System that is designed to help towing businesses reduce frivolous accident and damage claims and improve safety and driver behavior.

The MVSS is a series of cameras, a hard drive to store video footage, a touch-screen monitor and all necessary cables. Waterproof cameras are installed both inside and outside of the tow truck for 360-degree surveillance footage, including capturing audio and infrared imaging for nighttime video.

The system begins recording once a vehicle's ignition is turned on.

The Menzel MVSS is produced by Wisconsin-based Menzel Enterprises.

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.
