Se­ri­ous Ve­hi­cle Re­cov­ery Safety

4WDrive - - Trucks - Ditch­

The forces in­volved in ex­tract­ing a ve­hi­cle stuck in mud, snow or sand are enor­mous, which makes the Ditch Hitch® the safest way to free a ve­hi­cle as it’s de­signed specif­i­cally for han­dling dy­namic loads. Tow­ing chains, straps with hooks and other sys­tems can eas­ily sup­port heavy weight but they are bet­ter suited to static-load ap­pli­ca­tions like hoist­ing. They are prone to break­ing un­der dy­namic loads ex­pe­ri­enced dur­ing ve­hi­cle re­cov­ery. Used in con­junc­tion with ny­lon re­cov­ery straps or ropes with eye­lets, no metal fix­tures, the Ditch Hitch® elim­i­nates the use of chains, slings with tail chains, tow ropes with hooks, shack­les, trailer balls and pin­tle hitches etc.
