Discover The Best 4WD Recovery Tracks At Anaconda

Recovery tracks are very simple to use and essential once a 4x4 becomes stuck and a winch can't be used. Recovery tracks are known by many names including recovery boards, sand tracks, bog mats, traction boards, bridging ladders and traction ladders, and they all work by giving you something to shove under stuck wheels for providing extra traction. By introducing a firmer driving surface, you can hopefully free your 4WD from its dilemma. Some 4WD recovery tracks are designed for sand, while others work as bridging ladders or to fill large holes in the track so your vehicle has something to drive over. There are various types of recovery boards available, with some stored under the seat, while others are stored on roof racks.

Do I Need Other Equipment With Recovery Tracks?

You will make your life a lot easier if you bring a shovel along for the ride. In order to gain maximum traction under your 4x4 tyres, it's usually best to dig in front of the tyre so the recovery track can be wedged in as tightly as possible. In the event you forget your shovel, don't fret - some recovery tracks available from Anaconda have built-in hand grips and a shovel-shaped nose designed for digging. Recovery boards are strong and will bounce back into shape if bent. However, in getting your 4WD un-bogged, you may be left with recovery boards that are now sucked into the mud. Instead of using brute force to free your tracks while grappling in the mud, simply loop or clip some rope around the recovery board handle and pull it out or use your vehicle if necessary.

Recovery Tracks FAQs

How to use 4WD recovery board

Here are some simple steps to follow for how to use a 4WD recovery board:

  • Use a 4WD shovel to dig in front of each tyre, ensuring to remove as much material as possible.
  • Insert the recovery tracks underneath the wheels, wedging them firmly right underneath the tread.
  • Place down some recovery track straps or rope on the sides so they won't get buried by your vehicle. This will make it much easier to recover them once your 4WD is free.

Are recovery boards any good?

Yes, recovery boards are good. In fact, they are one of the most essential pieces of equipment in your 4WD arsenal. They are the most important piece of 4WD recovery gear for when your vehicle gets bogged down, whether it's snow, mud or sand, and requires additional traction in order to be recovered.

How many recovery boards do you need?

When it comes to how many recovery boards you should have stored in your 4WD, the answer is you will need at least two. Of course, depending on the size of your vehicle you might require around four or even six, but having at least two recovery boards stored in your vehicle when off-roading will ensure that you can always recover your vehicle in the event of getting bogged.
