I've had one for years and never used it. I've always grabbed the maxxtrax first and they have always got the job done. Im on the beach all the time and don't even bother carrying it anymore.

With the JK I never carried anything but a fold up shovel and recovery straps. But then I did have a winch and in a pinch with no one around could always bury the spare and winch myself out. Though in 5 years of running on the soft sand if Noosa north shore and Fraser Island I never once had a an issue.

However with the KL and towing a 1 tonne van up the beach and no winch I am a little more concerned having already got bogged once - and that was 30 seconds after entering the beach!

have to say i am pleasantly surprised about the positive feedback.
One thing i have to say all recovery methods are only as good as the person using them and can all be dangerous. Nice to read some actual educated comments instead of the usual campfire myths you hear about exhaust jacks.

Even though I don't carry one anymore, they are a good piece of kit and cheap insurance.

I would use it long before I reach for a hi lift jack on sand.
