I purchased a pair of tred recovery devices. ( cheaper than Maxi tracks ) I got bogged on the beach at Nelson the other day ,and on the second attempt at recovery was successful but heard a cracking noise . On inspection found one of them had broken the reinforcing underneath . Has anyone else had a problem or heard of this being a weakness with these units ?. Was only in soft sand and was taking it easy . First time i used them not impressed .

Hi

That's no good mate , have you contacted the manufacturer/seller, I'm sure they would be interested in the issue, how old and do you have proof of purchase etc..

Yeah no worries that's fair enough, you could still contact Tred though and have a chat, my advice would be, get a refund and wait till Max Trax come on special or source them at a 4wd show..

Goodluck ;)

Agree with Swaggie mate, I've used mine numerous times including getting myself intentially bogged and the Maxtrax have always got me out and no signs of breaking.

Buy the best recovery gear you can as it can save you big time

Yep I would say ditch the TREDS and go the Maxtrax, the treds splitting is fairly common from what I hear. One example below.

Are you sure they were TRED's? As I was unaware that ALDI sold TRED's, I had a set of the ALDI sand track's (not TRED's) and they also broke the first time I used them. I got a refund and bought a set of TRED's from Supercheap. I have used the TRED's a few times without an issue.
