4x4 Recovery Tracks & Boards
4x4 and Maxtrax Recovery Tracks
At Outback Equipment, we reckon the best way to be prepared for a solid four wheel driving trip or an outback adventure is to make sure you have the best equipment and knowledge for any situation which includes taking with you 4WD recovery tracks to ensure that you are able to get out of any tight situations. While it would be wonderful for us all to be driving around equipped with a high-powered heavy-duty winch with a heap of accessories, sometimes the budget just doesn’t run to this kind of expense. And then, of course, sometimes all you need is a good set of traction recovery boards. The range of versatile, easy-to-store and easy-to-use 4X4 recovery tracks work like a dream, giving you the traction you need to self-rescue from a range of sticky situations.
Recovery boards are with out a doubt one of the most essential 4WD accessories to take with you when heading abroad. They are there to assist your vehicle in situations that may arise when the traction on the road or pathway doesn't allow for you to safely cross. Recovery boards can be used for many different scenarios, like a platform to change a tire, directing your vehicle out of a slippery bank, a way to prevent your vehicle from sinking in grass or mus overnight or even as a make shift shovel in extreme cases. Carrying two recovery boards should realistically get you out of most sticky situations but from experience, if you are not travelling in a large convoy, 4 recovery boards are highly recommended in places that may have large ruts. You can use them to pad out parts of the track that require momentumn to get over the obstacle. Mounting your recovey boards are also a widely discussed topic and there are many different ways you can do this. From rear wheel mounts, roof rack mounts or the old trusty rachette straps, Outback Equipment has the right gear for the job. We find that for weekend trips or when just putting the old girl to the test at your local spots, rachette straps are the easiest as they can be undone and resecured quite quickly, especially when they are covered in mud. The more permanent mounting kits from Front Runner, MaxTrax and Exitrax are great for long journeys where they will only be used in a pinch. Some recovery board mounting kits are lockable and you can be sure they won't shake loose overtime.
How to Use 4WD Recovery Tracks
When you find yourself bogged in the sand, that’s when your recovery tracks will come in handy. The first thing you need to do is jump onto the business end of a shovel and start digging. You need to form a few tracks out the front of the wheels so that they have something to drive onto. Pop the recovery tracks out the front of the wheel and slowly inch onto them as a means of recovering your vehicle. Having a set of recovery tracks is going to make your life a whole lot easier in those situations where you’re bogged on the beach, the tide is slowly inching in, your partner’s sitting in the front wondering why you can’t just drive out and the kids are getting restless in the back! Make your life a whole lot easier and safer with a set of recovery tracks from Outback Equipment.
