Bog Out recovery rope ladders

Post by Tinium »

A friend shared these with me this morning - https://www.bogout.com/ - Anyone had any experience with them? For £40/set looks like something that would be worth having in the van, with some additional rope/chain etc. to make anchoring easier. Any recovery guru's out there with an opinion?  :D

Look again. A pair starts at 280AUS$

Thats £160, plus postage, plus import duty and vat.

I'd buy some new rope and get knotting, if I thought it was a good idea. Which it might be, but then again...

Certainly light to carry and could come in handy for other things.
Easily transferrable between vehicles unlike a winch etc.

Expensive though. 

Might grab some next time i'm over there lol - or if like last time with madd traxx - not bother :lol:   I'd sooner not get stuck, look before leap etc.  The times I have been stuck,  if air down didn't do the trick a strop and a tug soon sorted it - but then, I never off road alone

Check this video:

Same principle but cheaper.
Video is Portuguese but I think it is not difficult to figure out what he's doing. At the end he says that to get rope out you can just pull it. If too tight use jack again.

This one is quite dodgy, but in these situations asnlong as it works...

By the time you had a pair landed in the UK that £280 AUS$ will have turned into the same amount in Sterling.
The thick end of £300quid. For some knotted rope ladders that you could make for £50 max :rofl
Nothing like a nice load of rope, caked in mud, which you then have to bag up before you get back in your vehicle...

Bah, that £40 was from my 2nd link, presumed that it was a UK site as it was coming up in sterling, but yep, once at checkout looks like silly money shipping. Almost in "worth a punt" territory then failing at the last hurdle   :D
