Vehicle requirements for all members. These are the items you will need before you can undertake the club induction.

Vehicle requirements

Every new vehicle to the Club must be inspected for recovery points and required equipment by a Club Induction Assistant prior to attending a Club trip. The vehicle must be registered, be maintained in a roadworthy condition and have a minimum of Third Party Property Insurance, however, full comprehensive insurance is preferred.

Safety Equipment: must be carried on all trips

  • UHF radio – car mounted will give better range, but hand-held is the minimum requirement.
  • First Aid Kit - suitable for the amount of occupants in that vehicle.
  • Fire Extinguisher - let’s hope it is never required.

Recovery Equipment: must be carried on all 4WD trips

Non-winch vehicle

  • Rated recovery points - front and rear – inspected and approved.
  • Snatch Strap - 8000kg min, should be rated 2-3 times higher than GVM.
  • Dampener Blanket - regulations state compulsory use with snatch strap.
  • Rated Bow Shackles - 3.25 tonne minimum rating.
  • Shovel – you’re using it, so make sure it’s comfortable to use.
  • Axe or Bowsaw - a bowsaw is easier, however, an axe is handy for chopping firewood.

The above items are a minimum requirement for each club vehicle that attends
a 4wd trip. SPOT CHECKS MAY OCCUR.

Winch equipped vehicle: as for non-winch vehicles, plus the following:

  • Leather gloves - must be worn when handling winch cable or chains.
  • Tree Trunk Protector – to protect the environment.
  • Bow Shackle - 4.75 tonne minimum rating for use with the tree trunk protector.

Each member is able to, and should, add to the above items as they see fit.
