'Slick and Splashy' Rotator

0 aa68eBy George L. Nitti

According to Metro Towing and Recovery driver Kevin Richardson, who has been with the Ontario, Canada-based towing and transport company for 19 years, the 2017 Freightliner SD Classic with an NRC 50/65 CS Rotator he drives is "pretty slick" in its yellow and purple.

"We have a body shop," Richardson said, "and so it is easier and cheaper for us to paint it than to wrap it. We painted it yellow and then added the splashy purple decals. Not only does the paint last a lot longer, but it is easier to maintain when scratched."

The NRC rotator is painted a solid purple, and perfectly complements its yellow background while other colors of red and green add accent and contrast.

The name of the company stands out in several places, primarily on the side of the unit, where Metro is written in large white lettering. The company logo pops out on the side door.

"It looks flashy with the lights on. It's a bright billboard," said Richardson.

On the passenger side of the cab is a white and green decal, a certification standing for "idling clean."

"It just means that it is certified by the government that it is eco-friendly," said Richardson. "Canada is cracking down on smog and diesel emissions."

"Having a rotator makes the job easier. It's state of the art," Richardson stated.
