You can not have the "three locks", you can not have the "fifth drive", but certainly not without a handy shovel.
When buying a shovel, pay attention to the shovel shape and size. A round or pointed shovel is better at digging, while a flat square shovel is better for breaking the roots of grasses and trees. However, from my personal practical experience, the round-headed or pointed shovel will be more practical in the outdoors.
The advantage of the long handle is that the force arm is long enough, and can reach the bottom of the car more to the inside, if the chassis is dragged, then the long-handled shovel is definitely the most convenient tool, but only if you can fit the shovel inside the car.
The advantages of the short-handled shovel are just the opposite, relatively short length can make it easier to store, but also in the weight has some advantages. However, when it comes to "heavy work", it often seems a bit overwhelming.
When buying, it is not recommended to choose the so-called "multifunctional folding shovel", the price of these products are generally inflated and general quality. At the same time, there is no need to choose expensive imported products, ordinary hardware store shovel with a wooden handle is perfectly adequate.
So whether to carry with the car depends on the situation, if you often go through the route in a very thick bush, the utilization of these two tools will be very high.
Trailer rope (belt), unloading buckle, as long as you want to play off-road, then these two absolutely must be ready.
Trailer rope ductility, tonnage, length and other parameters we have explained many times, you only need to choose the corresponding big brand products according to their own car weight is good, in the case of economic conditions allow, a little "luxury" is not bad.
In addition, in the purchase can also first and teammates to determine the length of the existing tow rope, as far as possible "to make up for the shortcomings".
The choice of the buckle is also very simple, this kind of standardized industrial product will rarely go wrong, just pay attention to the following two points can be.
Make sure the shackle can be attached to the towing point while the tow rope is attached
Pay attention to whether the load rating is clearly marked on the shackle
In recent years, soft shackles made of synthetic fibers have slowly become a market favorite, the light weight and good strength is very pleasing, and in extreme cases also safer. However, the price of these products is often not low, if you do not want to spend money, with iron shackle is not bad.
