JM Electric Torq Winch

 

 

Whether used for your escapes, or to rescue a friend, a winch is your final line of defence against staying stuck. TJM’s Torq 9500 has a 4.3-ton towing capacity and is perfect for medium-to-large 4x4s. The winch itself is IP67 waterproof-rated, as is the wireless controller. Plastic parts are UV protected, and the 28m synthetic line is both lighter and stronger than its steel equivalent. The 3.6kW serieswound motor and planetary gear system ensure that Australia’s highest standards are met.

Wire me up, Scotty

Big Country 4x4 Portable Jamp Starter

Portable jump starter

 

 

There’s nothing worse than a flat battery without the option of a push. For this reason, Big Country is stocking a 900A portable jump starter that weighs only 1.25kg. The battery can be charged from a 12V or AC supply and will start a V8 diesel Cruiser up to six times on a single charge. Accessory cables and USB ports add convenience for charging devices, and a red flashing warning light and potent LED torch are a nice touch. As expected in any quality product, a handy carry case is supplied.

LA Sport Vastrap! Recovery tool

LA Sport Vastrap! Recovery tool

 

 

Originating from the minds of resourceful farmers who would strap planks to their tyres in order to escape mud, the Vastrap uses a similar principle. When a vehicle is bogged, strap a Vastrap around the tyre and through the rim, using the integrated strap. Made from rubber, the Vastrap hooks into the ground once the tyre rotates, and lifts the vehicle out of its sticky situation.

Price: R875 for a set of two
