Marine South – Maxtrax

Maxtrax is a vehicle recovery device developed in 2005 in Australia. Since then, it’s been adopted worldwide for use in sand, slush, mud, and snow. Weighing only 7.9 lbs, Maxtrax can accomodate up to 10,000 lbs. Maxtrax can be staked down, or used in conjunction with one another.


Maxtrax come in a variety of colors, including MultiCam.

    I’m speechless. Multicam pattern is _hydroprinted_ so it will probably scratch away in a blink of an eye. Paying 166USD extra for that is called stupidity.

    Been using them for two years now. Easily changed the outcome of over a dozen self recoveries and almost half as many again when I come across others in a jam.

    I’m not cool enough for Multicam though.

    Concur on the multicam. I’ve been using the green ones successfully. They work great in deep snow if you don’t want to winch

  4. I drive a two wheel drive ranger and think these might need to be added to my truck next winter.

    Love to hear the feedback! Thanks Soldier Systems for visiting us. We come from the Baja Racing world and it is an honor to be at the bases. Answers to your obviously knowledgable readers.

    1. Yes Hydro-dipped, basically paint / sticker. Expensive since we have to do it out of house. Mainly for people with expendable $$ and military / LE where every little advantage is important.

    2. Yes work great on anything from an APC to a VW Bug.

    3. 2 wheel drive, yes add it to your kit and you will be much less prone to getting bogged down.

    Thanks to you and all your readers. KC@MAXTRAXAMERICA.COM or see more at http://WWW.MAXTRAXAMERICA.COM

    Exactly the same principle as the sand traps used by armed forces around the world for decades, but out of modern materials, so an evolution (and a good one), rather than a revolution. Dont forget to tie them off to your bumber, so you can drive away with them till you are clear of the ‘danger area’.
