Light Trucks (Class 4)
Technically a class 4 truck features a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) in the range from 14,001 to 16,000 pounds. That probably doesn't mean that much to you but here's the importance of that figure in real terms. We're used to thinking of the family runabout as being a light vehicle that only needs light towing services if anything goes wrong. But as SUVs have gotten bigger and stronger you just might find that you're straying into medium duty terrain. Got a Ford F-450 truck? A Dodge Ram 4500? Then you've got a class 4 truck requiring medium duty towing.
Medium Trucks (Class 5)
Most owners of a class 5 (GVWR from 16,001 to 19,500 pounds) realize that they're driving a medium duty vehicle because it's an unusual household that pops to the shops in a Dodge Ram 5500
Cedar Rapids Towing understands that to you it's more than a truck, it's your business, and it may be like one of the family so give the medium duty experts a call if for whatever reason that baby finds itself spinning wheels and going nowhere.
Heavier Medium Trucks
Class 6 trucks (GVWR from 19,501 to 26,000 pounds) are heavyweights in their class and need heavyweight towing expertise to recover safely. Call Cedar Rapids Towing to talk to us about your likely needs.
Recreational Vehicles and Buses
Not all medium duty vehicles are workhorses. Any motor home or recreational vehicle built onto what is basically a stripped truck chassis is a medium duty vehicle and so are buses, even relatively small ones. So if you count on your vehicle to move people, whether for business or just on holiday, the chances are you'll need the number of a reliable, experienced, medium duty tow service.
