    Lifted 2 flatbeds loaded like that. 30 ton Screw jacks and lots of 6x6's. Took us less then 2 hours to have it hooked up and gone.

    I have a couple 20 and 12 ton air over hydraulic jacks. They take the work out of the work.
    Blue paint. Either Northern tool or tractor supply. Probably Northern.
    Good luck.

    Looks bad, unloaders/loaders have had it twisted at least as bad.

    Technically company owns it, but i tend to be the only one to pull it and owner is unlikely to whine if his cost is 2 jacks for me to level it and keep versus a rotater :p
     
    JoeyJunk Thanks this.

    We had scrap trailer go down loaded , driver came at it at a 45 and got under it , pretty slick driver actually the owner of the company.
    Our maintenance team cut the bent foot off and away it went.

    I was gona say the same; looks like maybe it could be hooked from an angle. Or at least gotten under and picked up onto the 5th wheel.
