Lan-cor Ground Anchors
There’s not much point in having a great winch if you don’t have anything to attach i t to. But carrying around a large, bulky ground anchor isn’t always practical. That is where the Lan- cor comes in.
While traditional anchors are big and cumbersome, when packed in i ts carry bag the Lan- cor is less than half a metre long, only weighs nine kg and can easily be stored with the rest of your recovery equipment in your vehicle,
There when you need it
But when you need it, it is easily unpacked and assembled into a strong, easy- to- manage anchor that, once set in the ground, is able to withstand enormous pulling loads in most terrain and, amazingly, is at i ts best in sand!
This is not just another auger anchor. The Lan- cor puts a new t wist on the old auger principle by using an auger blade with a length of wire rope attached just above the auger head that the winch attaches to. Several detachable lengths of shaft attach above the blade to screw the anchor into the ground.
Solid steel shaft
The auger head of the Lancor is made up of a 25mm diameter solid steel shaft, while the detachable lengths of shaft are box section that clip together to give an overall length of 1.8metres, meaning that the Lan- cor design is able to go far further into the ground than other anchors and as i t is pulled from the bottom has much greater holding power in a far wider range of terrain.
With an impressive 5.5 ton safe working load, the Lancor is able to withstand some pretty serious loads. In fact manufacturer field tests at a beach showed that the Lancor easily withstood the pull of t wo long wheel base Toyota Land Cruisers, both sunk in sand to the axles, winching themselves out at the same time off the same anchor.
The Lan- cor is used by New Zealand and Australian essential services and was recently picked up by NATO and is now on the NATO list of approved devices.
