    Zantus, the wife actually got it as a video clip where I'm pulling your wheels straight. Will see if I can make it a bit smaller and post a link to it.

    I've got a Hippo air jack that I bought 10-15 years ago and I've never used it.
    Are Hippo any good?
    Do air jacks have a shelf life?

    Look at the first pic, that is how I got out, Hippo to the rescue! Then read Bongani's article.

    Cheers

    This was the grey Colt's first outing, and he got beached at the top of the obstacle at Takbok 4x4. No problem... Bob comes to the rescue, but first he had to do some minor mountaineering to get the recovery strap out the back!

    Barto has actually allready featured on this thread, refer to my earlier post

    Here are some pics I took. Didn't take of the last resort (snatch) In hindsight I should've, as that was quite impressive

    The recovery was quite interesting. Since I don't have any recovery points on the front of the disco yet, we attached the strap to the front axle.
    First we tried a double line pull with the winch to keep things slow and controlled but it didn't work. We then went to a triple line pull with should have given a total pulling force of just over 10ton. Unfortunately something was wrong with the winch and after all the effort to set up the recovery we had to give up on that idea.

    We then reverted to snatching, not my preferred method when the vehicle is in a position like this, but it worked. It took about 5 snatches to get me out, of which one snatch was the most violent snatch I've ever experienced.....or that snatch strap of Dirk's isn't so lekka......Dirk, next time buy Spanset.....it's worth it!

    What was the tire pressure of the stuck vehicle.

    Hindsight.....the Spanset strap was in the drawers (brand spanking new still!) Also thought that strap felt a bit suspect.

    Dirk you must get yourself a neck brace and give it to the owner of the vehicle being recovered to wear.

    Had a lekker day playing at Arora (spelling?) in Kempton with Engel yesterday afternoon. And did I get stuck The mud didn't look as deep, slippery and snotty as it was and we had to winch
    Engel tried his best to snatch me out, but his lightweight Jeep only bounced back But I think it was the suction of the mud.
    I winched from a tree aswell as Engel winching me straight. I doubt if one winch would have done the job without some form of spadework.

    On a rather steep incline my Colt ran out of steam at the crest. With a lake below us, we decided it was too risky to reverse down and Engel winched me over the top.

    Unfortunatly we didn't take any pics of Engel stuck against a tree. He "apparently" was in 4x2 mode and slid back with a wattle tree stopping his rather rapid sliding descent. We winched him with his winch.

    All in all a good few lessons learnt and practiced. It was good (not clean) fun. I think I could have repotted half my plants with the dust that I vacumed out of the car
