I have been offered a good deal on Mean Mother recovery kit that includes 8000 snatch strap, 3.25 T shackles etc.
Does anyone have these or are there any better brands out there.
If i need to use them, I want them to work and don't mind paying a bit extra to get better quality. Our tug is a pretty much stock Prado with recovery points and good AT tyres.

If it's a good deal, go for it.

Most or all are now made in China, so quality is what it is, but Mean Mother are certainly not cheap and nasty !

If you want quality, you can not go past the "Just Straps" product.

Remember ..... you should be using an equaliser strap for any front hitched recoveries, to spread the load across both recovery points and both chassis rails.

I have the Mean Mother kit, very nice bag with snatch strap, tree trunk protector, extension strap, equalizer strap, recovery blanket, snatch block, gloves and 2 rated bow shackles.
Paid about $250 - 260 from memory
Was happy with the price as a kit for rated gear manufactured to Australian standard but its not a lightweight by any stretch

There's a tendency to go for heavier shackles these days. A hard snatch will exceed 3.25 tonnes and sometimes the pull angle is wrong to spread the load with a bridle. You can always add some 4.75 t shackles; about $14 each.
