Freida is an ex ministry of defence monster, and is a specialist piece of equipment with a overhead boom and a back blade and twin winches she is great for off road jobs like pulling plant equipment back on to tera firma when nothing else will do it. She hasn't been painted in Southern Recovery colours as this would be a mamouth task, but she does have the southern recovery logo's, and works as part of the team on heavy plant recovery and rescues.
