has anyone heard of these,i know about the maxtrax & ive seen them in action,they work great but at $295.& the sand tracks are $80 each & roll up to save space i thought these might be a better option.

I nearly bought the Bushranger one's BUT if you use them in sand they sink and you lose traction ... the maxtrax won't sink which is why they get you out of soft sand and even mud ... can't do that with the sand trax.

My Maxtrax go everywhere with me as they are very good for self recovering.

Cheers ...

See how you go with the two ... I've heard people say "You need four" but I can't see why. I've questioned these people and when pushed they've never used them ... :$ A 4wd should be able to pull itself out of sand with just two maxtrax.

I haven't had to use them yet but I dare say the day will come ... but to be safe I always carry some spare carpet in the back of the wagon ... :?#

Iv'e never heard of them before. I just watched the video on thier site and they are pretty impressive. What are they made of?. I could see those long prongs getting torn off. Scott.

IMHO, handy if you really want them. But there's a heap of other alternatives IF you get really stuck that will prolly work better, and cheaper.
