    Hi,

    Can anyone help on deciding which grip mats we should consider? We really need some that are very sturdy and quite long. We have an A class Laika, front wheel drive, and we can have great problems getting off wet grass etc. with only the slightest upward slope.

    Opinions would be appreciated.

    S&T

    A the risk of loosing Peter a sale , ... :Blush:
    also consider buying cheap rubber door mats from a pound store. They can be tied together with cable ties to make what ever length you need.

    Like these.

    Alternatively, I use the cut out bottom of bakers bread baskets ..

    We use fiamma grip mats,but always try to put the m/h in a position
    on site where we can reverse out, so instead of pulling all that load
    you are pushing it.:thumb:

    Thanks to you all for the suggestions, and also for a laugh on a rather grey Monday morning.

    Bread crate bases cut down the middle to get 2 out of each base.
    The good thing about these is that they sink into soft ground & grip giving better traction.
