When a winch or tow strap isn’t enough, Trac-Grabber can help. Big, chunky rubber blocks are attached to the tire in the way one might attach chains for winter driving. Then, by simply using the rotation of the tires, the blocks spin and push the machine upward, effectively lifting it both forward and up, out of the sticky substance. Trac-Grabber says these can be used in mud, sand, or snow, and with a weight as low as 1.5 pounds, they can easily be carried in most bags or boxes that fit on the back of a quad. Trac-Grabber says the tools can be installed on a tire in as little as 30 seconds, which should help for quick recoveries.
