Hey, I’ll agree anytime. MAXTRAX is one of the greatest Aussie inventions of all time and deserves to take the international market by storm as it has! Brad McCarthy was already a legend around Queensland a couple of decades ago having written the definitive guides to Fraser Island and a bunch of other places. He developed MAXTRAX after almost losing his own vehicle on a remote beach as the tide came in. Since then I’ve used them countless times and yes, we’ve saved at least three vehicles in seriously remote places where nothing else except MAXTRAX would have done the job.

So if you could only carry one recovery device, it’d have to be a set of MAXTRAX. Light, durable, multi-purpose – turn them over and use them as a shovel – McCarthy’s creation is pretty incredible. And while lots of people have tried to copy the concept, the fact that the original design was engineered, perfected and then patented means the imitations will never live up to the task. There’s only one MAXTRAX – and I’d recommend you carry four of them!

On a wet rainforest track in Tassie, in a world where everything was soft or rotten, I used two as a base for a highlift jack so I could strip Milo’s steering knuckle and get her driving again. I’ve lost count of how many sand hills I’ve crested over the Simpson with the help of MAXTRAX, especially those trips that involved a trailer. And then during filming for LowRange at Lorella Springs, one of the most remote places on the planet, we saved three vehicles in a couple of hours when the tide came rushing in and sucked them down from below. Glen Hadden’s heavy 79 dual cab needed a track laid from MAXTRAX to get it clear but we got out – with trucks intact.

MAXTRAX – the cheapest insurance a fair dinkum off-roader can carry.

What Makes MAXTRAX Different?

Serious Traction

Specially designed, located and orientated to fit into the grooves of your tyre tread, the rounded teeth on the top surface of the MAXTRAX provide excellent traction whether your tyres are wet, dry, or full of sand, mud or snow; and they won’t damage your tyres.

Built  In Shovel

Just like dropping your tyre pressures, the large, high traction surface allows your vehicle to gain the momentum to get you moving again. When it comes to floatation over soft ground, size matters! MAXTRAX provides a huge 115 cm long x 33 cm wide ‘footprint’ providing excellent flotation and  “MAXimum TRAXion”.
