Tote was sent to Earth in answer to Optimus Prime's request for reinforcements, along with the rest of the Off Road Patrol and the Race Car Patrol. Assigned to investigate creature sightings and unusual storm activity, they inevitably ran into Scorponok's Decepticons. When the patrol battled Skullgrin, Powertrain used his exhaust to blind their opponent, allowing Tote and Highjump to use a cable to trip him up.
