2 years ago i stucked in a mud area..alone ..(dimensions 60 mtrsx 60 mtrs)so when came a rescue car it wasnt possible to catch me..also no trees around..this was a lesson for me..must be fully independent
from that moment carrying always 100 mtrs extra wire to the car plus belts 50 mtrs totally
but i start to construct my land anchor to the same dimensions and weight as a brand name..
i had only 4 dimensions weight length height breadth so i must design it to a scale in a paper
5mm steel plate everywhere

finally the construction has 16,2 kgs not because of wrong calculations but of reinforcing some points
..if there is any chance to brake somewhere the anchor (original or not ) this point will be as u ll see to the first photo(with the red arrow)..so i weld 2 small plates to the vertical steel plate and 2 tie rods make the constuction more heavily

in a while u ll see it in action

Looks the business!

If anyone else wants one and don't have the time to engineer one I can personally recommend a little Welsh Company called Wizardbilt.com.

South African Ex-pat Couple that loves the Outdoors and specialise in 4x4 Accessories for that Green Oval Badge mob... :shh:

The other stuff is great, light bars, bush cables etc.

Give them a buzz for anchors!! :dance:

How well do the land anchors work? I've never seen one used in person. The idea makes sense but if there is just dirt to grab, would it hold? I would think it would need something more firmer to grab, otherwise it would just plow the ground.
