Ja, ek het juis gister vir Tinus gese sy Ptrol is nie 'n jag-bakkie nie, want mens gaan sk&%t om 'n bok so hoog op te tel!

Maar as jy gereeld sulke groot diere skiet moet jy maar vir jou 'n driepootjie bou, met 'n blok & tackle.

Die eerste keer wat ek by was toe 'n buffel gelaai moes word, het hulle 'n soort special stretcher gebruik wat van dik pale en conveyor belt gemaak was. Agt ouens het prober optel, maar kon nie. Uiteindelik het ons die bakkie ('n "spoeg" cruiser "spoeg") se agterwiele ingegrou, en so kon ons hoog genoeg optel.

Die ander vier kere het ons 'n driepoot gebruik wat van drie boorgat-pype gemaak is. Die PH het twee snye in die buffel se pensvel gesny, so breed soos sy handpalm en so ver uitmekaar soos hulle lank was. Die haak vn die chain block is daardeur gehaak, dan tel hy die buffel mooi level op, pote in die lug, reverse die bakkie in en sak die buffel. Werk soos 'n bom.
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

As jy daai groot koedoes en elande skiet het ons gewoonlik ou tralies gebruik die wat agter by die ruit van 'n hilux of so was, en dan was die agterste kadet nie daar nie. Dan het hy die koedoe/eland bo-op die tralie gesleep wat teen die bak gele het, dan sleep jy vir hom terwyl bakkie stadig agteruit loop. Maar deesdae kan man sommer lekker sterk wenas aan die rollbar was maak en lekker tralies maak waarop die outjie kan gly wat jy wil op katrol met die wenas. By gese die rollbar moet VAS wees en die manne moet maar help sleep en stoot. Deel van die pret as jy jag.

Patrol bakkie lyk mooi met daardie eland agterop!!

Die elande is die beste vleis en ek soek ook daarvan! :thumbup:

Ek dink die so maklig gewees het om hom met 'n hand winch agter in die bakkie te gelaai het as jy ook net 2 blanke gehad het teen die bak se panel agter en hom dan net op gesleep het. :thumbup:

Het gou hierdie HINO 500 trokkie wat in one receiving bay gebreek het, uit die pad gesleep.
Die trokkie is vol water en koeldrank. (So amper 'n vol vrag). Die trokkie se tare gewig volgens lisensie skyfie is 5.1t..

Brilliant Bud !!!!!

I have only one question though.... I have to ask this purely for learning purposes of anyone reading this post.

How was the tow/pull strap attached to your vehicle?

If you attached it by simply putting the loop of the strap over the tow ball, then consider yourself a very very lucky man .... buy a lotto ticket !!.... But don't stress my friend because you will now be giving who ever reads this the opportunity to learn that this is definitively not the correct way to do this. In fact it is extremely dangerous !!

If you attached the strap to recovery points on the vehicle, then 10 out of ten to you !!! You did it the correct way !!

If your tow bar and tow ball in particular is the standard everyday tow hook like this,

then one needs to know that that ball is designed to sheer off at a certain load ( for example if the trailer flips over ). This ball becomes a projectile of massive proportions and can easily go through a human skull....
So basically on this setup of towball/hitch.... never do a recovery.

If you have this set up

TOBP.jpg
TOBP.jpg (97.07 KiB) Viewed 1039 times


then things change a bit. The weak point then becomes either the bolts holding the tow hitch to the tow bar, or the bolts holding the tow bar to the chassis. However leaving the tensile strength out of the equation at the moment, in theory you can attach the strap through the pin and .....

please note i'm not condoning or advising anyone on how to do a recovery

.... gently, without any jerking or snatching of the strap tow or move the stuck vehicle.

Naturally one needs to do ANY recovery as safely as possible and there are many ways to ensure this by means of safety lanyards etc. and these should be used for their intended purposes.

I'm only writing this to allow anyone seeing this to hopefully be better informed, before something bad happens. One just has to google tow ball recoveries to see how bad it can get.

Yip, i got decent recovery points on my rear bumper. The removable towbar spends its days lying in the garage gathering dust. :lol:
Used a 14t rated pull strap with the biggest bow shackle i got in my arsenal.

Excellent !!!.... but again always keep in mind where the weak point is... a weld that is hidden or rusting out over time or the bolts holding the bumper to the chassis.

Hold hard here a minute guys...

Safety is good and right, and should always be considered whatever you do. But.

If towing a lorry slowly on level ground with a pull strap, there is absolutely no danger whatever recovery point breaks. Because a pull strap is not really elastic and doesn't store energy.

If it were on an angled recovery (uphill), then should something break the lorry might run away and one would need to take steps to prevent that.

Things only turn into missiles when excessive force is used, or when snatch-ropes or snatch-straps are used.

Absolutely Peter, It is impressive that our Patrols can do what they do, and I definitively don't want to take any glory away from SJC. There is a very proud moment that was had there !! the way he did it was also safe for that application, I purely wanted to piggyback on that for any person looking in on this post that may not have the knowledge of the implications of what can go wrong if .....

Scary thing is that before I joined the Nissan club, armed with very little recovery knowledge, and while in Mozambique have great fun recovering 4x4 taxis stuck in the soft sand.... with a tow strap around my tow ball !!!! I was totally unaware of the implications of my actions. Since joining the Nissan Club I have done and participated in recovery training, which opened my eyes ( very wide !!)......... I must be the luckiest guy around that nothing went wrong !!!
So this was purely meant for information purposes. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
