When a four wheeler gets stuck in the mud, tow straps, also known as tow ropes, are often used to pull the machines free. In case you are not familiar with the gear, tow straps are comprised of tightly interwoven fibers.
Thanks to this design, high-quality ATV ropes are strong enough to handle the task of to pulling devices free from otherwise hopeless situations. That said, there are a plethora of tow ropes out there. To determine which tow strap is ideal for your unique situation, read on.
Using a winch is not necessary for a tow. However, winches can increase the odds of a tow being successful. Despite this feat, many ATV enthusiasts avoid using winches due to the fact that they can be a real hassle to set up.
Taking this into consideration, TigerTail developed a winch and tow strap combo that is specifically designed to be used on all terrain vehicles. Here is how the device works.
The fully integrated design attaches to an ATV via a patented mount and self-locking hook. After connecting the other end to a trapped all terrain vehicle, the tow can commince. During the aforementioned process, a constant supply of tension is generated along the 15 feet of tow rope thanks to the retractable aspect of the spool.
In terms of overall power, the $150, non-electric system can handle any tow under 8,000 lbs.
