WEST PALM BEACH, FL, May 23, 2022 – Guardian Fleet Services, a leading provider of towing, recovery, and specialized transportation services, has expanded its fleet to include the Miller Industries’ largest product, the Century M100. The company is now the first towing and recovery company in Florida and the 7th in the nation to have an M100 in its fleet of Heavy Recovery vehicles. Guardian took delivery of the M100 during the Professional Wrecker Operators of Florida (PWOF) Florida Tow Show, which took place April 21 – 23, 2022, in Orlando, Florida.
The M100 is the world’s largest rotator, offering lifting capabilities of 200,000 lbs. Not only are the M100’s lifting capabilities impressive, but so is its reach. The maximum elevated hook height is 53.4 ft and 25 ft of outrigger stance. These dimensions allow for an 8,300 square-foot working space.
The M100 is an innovative answer for heavy-duty operations requiring a vehicle that will deliver optimal performance year-round. This state-of-the-art rotator comes equipped with the Raptor® Control Package, allowing operators to manage the controls from a safely distanced station.
“This addition to our fleet has allowed us to expand our reach into new markets,” said Mike Swanson, Guardian’s Heavy Recovery Manager & M100 operator. “Since we have taken delivery of the M100, we have put it to good use; from lifting a 96,000lb CAT D11t to setting 22,000lb underground boxes. It is exciting to be a part of an industry-leading company like Guardian as Florida’s first M100 operator.”
Guardian Fleet Services’ M100 will be stationed at Professional Towing in Tampa, Florida, but will provide services to the entire state of Florida.
