    Default Recovery points - From and engineering perspective

    Dunno if this is a double posting, but I found this article very interesting reading.

    Vehicle Recovery Points by Mike Lauterbach.

    Downloadable document can be found here

    Looking at the strength of most vehicle's recovery points and then comparing it with the required strength as per the tables in the article, I have to think ... and then think again ...

    I'm going to use these values to calculate my recovery point's strengths and see if mine are sufficient?

    This is indeed more complex than I anticipated. Thank you very much for this valuable insight.

    My previous G350 bluetech had the obvious proper recovery hooks and have used them extensively.However,noe have a new engined ML500 and it has none.Did use the towbar as well as the screw in ring provided.This has never been an issue,but do realize that it could become one.Safety then the first priority if you have to.
