ARB Deluxe Winch Bullbar, note the hilift type jack bolted on topof the roller fairlead guide.
Note also the rather flimsy skid plate, I have since replaced this with one that comes all the way up to the base of the bullbar and made from 4mm mild steel plate. Due to the angular shape of the bullbar, a special adaptor (that ARB will charge you dearly for) is required in order to safely use the hilift jack.


Winch Bullbar

I've bought an ARB Deluxe Winch Bullbar (Frog's Island 4x4), which is an awesome bit of kit, (read: bloody waste of money!) but I'm not going to fit an electric winch (WARN XD9000) because they are so bloody expensive! So I'm going for the Black Rat recovery winch. Well I would do if it hadn't been "affirmative actioned" in Port Durban.

 

Compressor

Well I bought a TruckAir compressor which seems to work nicely enough. Still going strong after two years.

 

"Hi-Lift" ©, "Tirfor" © & "Black Rat" ©

Now Platypus 4x4 has come to my aid with the offer of sponsored recovery equipment, so I have their versions of the Tirfor and Hi-Lift. They have also donated the following kit:

 

1 x BR Recovery Bag

Containing:
1 x Quick Access flat laying recovery bag with reflective triangle
1 x 9m x 60mm Heavy Duty Snatch-Em Strap
1 x Bow Shackle 16mm x 19mm; 3.2 Tonne Rated (lost due to corrugations)
1 x Bow Shackle 19mm x 22mm; 4.7 Tonne Rated (lost due to corrugations)
1 x Tree Trunk Protector 3m x 75mm; 10,000kgs BS
1 x Off-road Block, greasable; 5mm to 11mm
1 x Open weave drying bag
1 x Heavy Duty 5m x 25mm Ratchet Tie Down
2 x Leather Safety Gloves

and:

2 x Bow Shackle 16mm x 19mm; 3.2 Tonne Rated

Plus:

1 x Black Rat Recovery Winch - 1600kg (Stolen in Port Durban)

1 x Folding Shovel (lost in the sand after a recovery)

1 x 6m Ratchet Tie Down

1 x Power Lifter Jack (Not quite equivalent to a Hi-Lift: I noticed that the "backbone" had bent after a wheel change. Obviously OK for your usual 4x4 activities but obviously not expedition spec. i.e. it had bent whilst lifting my 2.9 tonne vehicle - not drastically, but enough for me to notice and to seek out a replacement)

1 x Towing Kit & Bag (left in another vehicle after towing)

1 x 12" square x 2" deep Wooden block (my own)

 

If you want any more information on these or other Black Rat recovery kit just talk to James Howell at Paltypus 4x4.

Until then, hamba kuhle...
