The Bush Anchor
The Bush Anchor Kits are a highly effective and portable self-recovery anchor solution when there are no alternatives. The anchors are very strong,easy to place and retrieve and don’t need knots, shackles or tools to connect the winch rope to.
The Bush Anchor Kits are available in two variations:
- The Ground Anchor, 0.7m long, is ideal for use in unconsolidated clay, mud and sand conditions.
- The Sand Anchor, 1.0m long, is ideal for use in softer sand and mud conditions.
Each auger rod is fabricated out of 1” high tensile steel and will hold well over 2 tonnes each before starting to bend.
Tailored for use with the Bush Winch in sand, mud and clay the Ground or Sand Anchor is one kit but includes two independent anchors.
A recovery system that provides two anchors means that the winch load is automatically shared/halved and will hold where a single anchor point would not. Two anchors placed in tandem or independently also provide for a greater array of solutions otherwise not possible or strong enough from a single anchor point.
The Anchors are screwed by hand into the ground (like an auger) and while doing this mated with a spade that is also pressed and pinned vertically into the ground. The auger and spade act together as a fixed unyielding point that resists the load far more effectively than the alternatives like plough type anchors.
The Anchor Kits provides an important part of the vehicle self-recovery solution but has also been found to be a great value for all those other occasions when tough ground anchors are required.
