    Ukranian tourist ..... unsafe towball recovery ? Why do you say so just by looking at a pict ? Or is ALL towball recoveries deemed as unsafe ?

    As a general rule, yes. All towball recoveries should be considered unsafe- and that looks like a kinetic rope too! Dis moeilikheid soek.

    Bartho, I do not profess to know dune recoveries anywhere near as much as you. Yet, I do know enough to know that recovery is going to take more than a pull. That calls for a snatch recovery. And, that being a kinetic rope, spells danger.

    We've had a Disco 1 try a snatch on a SerIII Landy where the tow bar drop plate tore out, and struck the D1 on the top part of the tailgate door. Took out the roof and rear door on the Disco. Both had to be replaced! If that drop plate was 6" lower, we would have had my SIL in hospital... if she was lucky.

    I consider that recovery unsafe.

    Would agree totally with abovesaid but fortuner could not get traction to even start to really put tension into strap. After this picture they sweated a bit and dug it out properly and a vast walking pace pull recovered it 😊

    Some people think Enduro Bikes is a matter of life and death. I don't like that attitude!I can assure them its much more serious than that

    Bartho, ek sien die cool box delsel en gedink aan n tip vir iemand wat dalk in sand vas geval het nie maar nie sy bier wil warm drink nie....gewone rubber matjie in kar maak ook nogal n groot verskil onder n domkrag wat aanhoudend in sand weg sink.
    Mooi loop!

    Lol . Dit was uit desperaatheid.... die duine borde en matjies wou nie die jack se gewig hou nie en was teen die al gebruik onder die wiele as dit eers uit die sand was....

    Ek gebruik nou nog na tien jaar die koelboks met sy deksel ..... deksel het net so n krap/duikplek op.
