Far too many people are injured and potentially killed each year in unnecessary four-wheel-drive recovery incidents. This is due to a combination of a lack of expertise and training, as well as the inadequacy of the 4WD industries traditional legacy equipment. MAXTRAX has finally resolved the later equipment problem.

  • MAXTRAX believes a stuck 4WD recovering from a bog using its own power and self-generated traction is significantly safer. As a result, they developed the MAXTRAX Recovery Tracks product line. In some cases however, external energy and vehicle movement transfer solutions are required. High-torque winches or secondary vehicles utilising a Snatch Rope to impart kinetic extraction force to the stranded car are examples of external solutions. The motorist and bystander are put in danger here. Non-systemized, poorly made, metal-based recovery equipment is placed under great stress, resulting in various forms of high-speed projectiles that frequently kill people on the scene.

  • MAXTRAX has once again responded to market demands by introducing a world-first Recovery "System" product line. This innovative and cohesive system of components works in unison to protect the equipment from misuse, the vehicles from damage, and, most importantly, the operators and bystanders from harm. This comprehensive and well-thought-out system includes MAXTRAX: -Next Gen Shackles (Fuse and Core) -'Hitch 50' Tow Bar Insert -'Winch Ring 120' -2/3/5/10m Kinetic Ropes -Rope Dampener Sling -30m Winch Rope (with Polymer Eyes) -3/5m and 10m Static Ropes -Specialist Recovery Kit Carry Bag -Combination Kits (Beach and Bush Kits pre packed in Carry Bag)

  • Traditionally, 4WD owners would buy different manufacturers' products to form their own vehicle recovery kit. No manufacturer has previously taken a step back and developed a complete recovery system that aims ensuring safe usage practices through good and cohesive design. The design impact of MAXTRAX Recovery Systems on vehicle and, more importantly, human safety should be recognised. Created by thought leaders and 4WD experts, it takes the guesswork out of organising the necessary equipment for novices. Excellent supporting information and the designed components' natural ability to collaborate to ensure safe and effective operations in the Bush or on the Beach.

  • A following section will cover the Recovery Systems product innovations and key features more detail. Here, we'd like to emphasise that the MAXTRAX Recovery system was created through continuous and rigorous engagement and collaborative consultation with Australia's leading 4WD Driving Instructors. Because this is a relatively new R&D programme, all components have been developed in accordance with the most recent Consumer Goods (Motor Vehicle Recovery Straps) Safety Standard 2017-2020 Standards. MAXTRAX has also made significant investments in education, information, and simple best practice video tutorials in order to better engage and educate novice users on the dangers and how to ensure their safety and enjoyment in the great outdoors.
