Recovery Tracks MKII are essential pieces of recovery gear that help you get your vehicle out of trouble when it loses traction on rocks, sand, mud or snow. They are a quick and easy traction solution.
Recovery Tracks MKII are shorter, but robust and durable, lightweight, and flexible and ideal for use in sand and mud. They can be linked together to make a longer track. The tracks are made from new generation of plastic, polyethylene and are UV stabilized. The ridged plastic provides traction for the vehicle’s tires. Strap them to a your roof rack or fix to the sides of your canopy to be easily accessible. A key advantage is that these tracks are lightweight at 4.5kg each.
Do Recovery Tracks MKII really work? Yes, and they are quicker and easier than hooking up a recovery strap or unspooling a winch. A good a set of recovery boards can get you unstuck in a matter or minutes.
- Clear the path you intend to follow – either to the front or rear depending on which way you want to go.
- Make sure that the tracks are inserted as deep as possible under the tire, ensuring that it makes proper contact – if not, you are going to damage your tracks.
- To minimise track damage, do not allow wheels to spin excessively.
- Retrieve the tracks after passing the problematic section. Keep moving until you are out of muddy or sandy conditions. Rather than risk getting stuck again, walk back to collect the tracks.
Recovery tracks are often used by off-road enthusiasts, such as those who enjoy four-wheeling or rock crawling, as well as by emergency responders, military personnel, and other professionals who need to navigate difficult terrain in their vehicles.
