SE­CURE THE VE­HI­CLE

4 x 4 Australia - - Techniques -

IN ANY re­cov­ery sit­u­a­tion it’s vi­tal to plan out what’s go­ing to hap­pen through ev­ery stage of the process. 4x4s have a ten­dency to start mov­ing once you’ve re­moved them from what­ever is hold­ing them back. En­sure the wheels stay­ing on the ground are chocked, the hand­brake’s on, and the ve­hi­cle is in gear. If the sec­tion of track you’re stuck on is steep enough, it’s a good idea to run a winch line to pre­vent the 4x4 from head­ing down­hill at a rate of knots with no one be­hind the wheel.
