New lightweight vehicle mats


Faun Trackway introduced a new lightweight vehicle mats (Light Weight Vehicle Recovery Mat, LVRM) that increase ground maneuverability. A new lightweight mat designed for self-pulling stuck cars weighing up to 10 tons.

The company has developed a new rug using durable fabric inserts and reinforced epoxy transverse rods to ensure even load distribution of the wheels of military and civilian vehicles with pneumatic tires.

The LVRM system weighs 4 kg and is suitable for use in very soft dirt or snow, as well as on sands and other loose soils. According to the company, the mat can be quickly deployed manually to minimize the time the vehicle is out of traffic. The non-slip material of the pad is resistant to degradation of its qualities when exposed to chemical and biological factors and can be easily cleaned and packaged for further use. The standard size of the mat is 1.4 m², however there is the possibility of ordering other sizes that can meet the specific requirements of customers.

Michael Holdcraft, vice president of business development for Faun Trackway, said: "Expeditionary forces using small cars show great interest in reliable, easy means of self-pulling, such as those supplied by us LVRM. The new system systematically complements the existing list our products, improving off-road performance with a much lower weight. We are confident that this product will be popular with a number of military organizations. "

    For self-extraction - a winch!

    And they wipe their feet on the mat.

      The point is to quickly pull the combat vehicle out of the mud without unwinding the winch and looking for support for it, in technical training schools there is a whole discipline where the principles of self-extraction are given and if a competent officer or driver, driver you can not even imagine what can be done with a simple log and a shovel without any winch, so for practical purposes it’s very interesting news!

    what a miracle? wraps around "mud rubber" making it a "slick"? dirt (like clay) has weight and either falls off by itself or clogs the tread, depending on the type of tires. oh, I'm in doubt about the miracle rugs! better airlocks and mud tires, with a winch not invented.

        On the second photo jeep ceroki "brick" weighs one and a half tons. with such road tires he drives himself, even up to his ears in clay, until he lies on the axle (or the gearbox does not become a plow). one fig the tread becomes smooth in half a second if the mud is wet, like clay. It will crawl out on dry ground.
        the rug is a fiction. Staged photo, for advertising campaign.
        in the second photo, if the SUV has a low-down and it does not lie on its belly, it will "swing". these orange things are window dressing. They are too clean, just like in the catalog.
        But for cars, it may help. (just not that porn **** with the red pepelats, but the one in the first photo) But what does the SUV have to do with it?

                  A winch is a thing. Sometimes manual is enough. (in most cases, for 3 fields, for example, because it’s a light car.) And it costs about a hundred bucks.
                  From the engine, it’s okay and healthy, if the snorkel allows. Often the jibs fall in the muzzle in the brook or fall on their side (catch the danger of water hammer) ...
                  From the battery is enough, if not TP3, in which you can ride scuba gear. If you do not have hundreds of meters of continuous swan speed, (and this is only in competition), then there is no need to invest so much in a winch. The fisherman or hunter will simply choose a different path. I mean, there is an alternative if the head is in place.

        I tried to apply large rubber carpets to the hole from the supermarket door mat. No good on ice. It is simply pulled back by the wheel. I regularly drag "Gazelle" with a winch on snow and ice, such a road to the country house, only a winch!

      In the English manner, this is called sand trucks. They make sense if they are heavy and do not bend. What we sell is usually China with consequences for tin, like a beer can. But there are exceptions.
      The problem with them - to drag a high-quality (heavy because iron and money costs real) truck with mud from the swamp - the navel will open in a couple of puddles. For me, a rope on a board would be more appropriate. And cheap, and you can quit, since it broke. (A winch is even better)

        I wanted to take myself. I saw the price - fell. Yes, iron, yes, 6 mm thick. But it costs like a cast-iron bridge, 6600 apiece. Yes, yes apiece.

          Better "winch" - there is no sand truck. At worst, a floorboard with holes. lol under the rope (so as not to slip) cheaply and helps.
          Lovers of money to spend, they say that aluminum stairs or anything, work. But again, the price. And I saw how they bend on logs, and back how to bend when you are in the forest?
          Cheap sand tracks (for a hundred bucks) - a typical stamped UG, although it may look weighty. They have a peculiar profile - in the field, figs will be driven out to be screwed to the trunk, and bent under the machine, as if they were from a beer can ...

    "The rug can be quickly unrolled by hand" is bad news for "some military organizations" as the author means. They cannot do anything by hand, their hands are not sharpened for that. Well, in fact, it has long been known that the steeper the jeep, the further to go after the tractor.

        One thing is the chain distributed over the wheel (I do not want to say wound) as a "lug" tread, which bites into the surface. They have a fulcrum.
        Another thing is a rug with a kind of tread. It will either fly out from under the wheel, or it will be "chewed" between the wheel and the arch (the threshold of the car, bump, rut, frozen ice). And the joints between the tracks are not credible. Maybe this tape will help on the ice, from the parking lot, early in the morning, but I would not count on more.

          It’s definitely not on the ice, it won’t help, it will fly away.

    Last summer, on an Opel Astra x, I sat down in a puddle on a dirt road after the rain (I drove 5 km normally, and 50 meters before the asphalt road I sat down) So I have wheels for asphalt driving in a straight line (about the following picture http://topwar.ru/ uploads / images / 2013/258 / qrud382.jpg) And no matter how many branches I threw under the wheels, nothing worked, the wheels simply did not cling. So with these "miracle carpets" if the rubber is more or less toothed machine can and will come out, but with city tires no. I don't see any sense in these rugs

    A good thing and probably inexpensive, plus no need to look for what to hook the winch on and the winch itself is not needed.
