Grand Prize Hino Truck Raffled At Florida Tow Show

NOVI, Mich., April 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hino Trucks partnered with Miller Industries to provide one lucky tow operator a chance to win a fully loaded 2014MY Hino model 258ALP with a Century 12 Series LCG Carrier.  The truck is part of a giveaway that benefits The Professional Wreckers of Florida (PWOF) Education and Legislation Programs.

This year's winner is Aaron Farron of Sprint Towing from Jacksonville, Florida. Aaron is co-owner of the family owned Sprint Towing and commented, "I am so excited for the opportunity to introduce another Hino into our fleet.  We already have four Hino 258s in our fleet. We chose Hino because we had always heard good things from other owners and drivers. The trucks are very solid and they have the ability to tow larger personal vehicles than some other brands. Their great durability and dependability are the reasons we keep going back to Hino."

The promotional truck travels across the country to various towing events and PWOF meetings promoting education and safety to independent wrecker operators.  "We certainly want to congratulate Aaron, and we want to thank Miller Industries for partnering with Hino and the PWOF for the past several years," said Gary Mickiewicz, Vice President, Eastern Region Sales for Hino Trucks.  "This collaboration is an opportunity for Hino to support the PWOF organization and their efforts to advance the towing industry." 

The Hino 258ALP model roll back has a unique design and leads the industry by providing a total package of driver comfort and flexibility, superior performance, low-cost-per-mile operation, and outstanding serviceability and reliability. The Century 12 Series LCG Carrier is a patented design that allows the carrier deck to be mounted 5 – 6 inches lower than comparable units providing a lower load angle, better stability, increased safety with the operator being able to secure the load from the ground and the ability to transport taller loads.
