What capacity snatch strap do you need to recover a vehicle?
How do you know what capacity snatch strap you’re going to need to do a recovery? Well, basically, you multiply the GVM of the lightest vehicle by two to three times.
So, my Land Cruiser weighs two and a half to three ton. So let’s take three, multiply it by two, six. Multiply it by three, nine. So I need something between six and 9,000 kilos. Therefore, an 8,000 kilo snatch strap is going to be perfect for recovering my vehicle. How cool is that?
