Torching Off Trailer Bumper Tube Bolts

Bumper Tube Removal

Sometimes a little heat is needed to remove those stubborn bolts. That is what Trailer Technician Jason ran into while removing the damaged bumper tube from this 2007 53′ Great Dane Dry Van Trailer. The torch being used is the Firepower OxyFuel 350.
