Maxtrax? Has anyone used these?

Was watching a youtube video of a car on the beach which turned out to be an advertisement for these.

Just curious if anyone has seen or used these?

LOL. Good one.

I think it will be useful for someone who does a lot of time on sand and maybe useful also in deep snow conditions.

These would be good for those that refuse to air down on soft terrane.

Looks like a great example of Aussie ingenuity .

Any 4X4 can can bogged in soft sand, these or anything similar are invaluable tools.

Re: Maxtrax? Has anyone used these?

that's what i was thinking, even if you air down I guess it's still possible to get stuck in the sand. In the videos these seemed to work great!
Guessing they would be good for a vehicle that doesn't have any tow hooks also. If you can use these to get yourself out instead of having to be pulled out.

Re: Maxtrax? Has anyone used these?

I've seen them in use and they are very effective.

There's also another brand out now, TRED ... http://www.4wd1.com/TRED-Recovery-Ramp.htm

A bit cheaper than Maxtrax.

Re: Maxtrax? Has anyone used these?

I like that... added peace of mind when trekking in places where a tow is not easily available.

You bet! They work like a dream. Ideal for loners like me.
