Hi AGAIN!!!
Curious to know if people are still using shuroos. Are they any good? Or not worth the trouble?

Hayley,

I haven't hit a roo since sticking them on my front grill and for 5 bucks why would you worry whether they worked or not.

I would certainly recommend their use. Pre ShuRoo days I had the misfortune to hit 3 roos in the space of 6 months.

The panel beater loved me.......lol

Cheers

Ive hit roos and missed roos with and without shuroos for a while now.

my current vehicle had them when i bought it - and ive not hit a roo yet. one of them fell off the other day - was it superstition that made me stick it back on. i think the placebo effect might be in play here.

i always wondered - if the roos can hear it - would it bother my dog?


good luck

Hayley, Not worth the trouble, I live in Rushworth the kangeroo capital of the Australia. In 15 years I have hit over 30. The best defence is to just to drive slow and to keep your eyes open. I had the Shuroo on and decided to test it by driving through a mob of sheep and cattle, they just ignored me!

I too have a pair of the plastic "whistles" that have been on the Jack for around nine years.

Even around town I have noticed dogs taking notice of the vehicle as it approaches them.

Driving in country areas anything from domestic cattle to emus and even a pair of Wedge Tail Eagles tending to roadkill on the road have been alerted to the vehicle's approach.

One thing though. You need to ensure the air passages are not blocked up with mud, spider webs, etc.
Mine are removable from the stick-on base for cleaning.

I used those plastic ones, but I found them more of a silent type, and were difficult to clean.
I got onto metal ones, made by Lion (but I could be wrong)
They actually whistled and could detatch, from the base so they can be cleaned properly.

Been trying to find new ones, after upgrading to the Patrol.
As yet, I have only found the metal version of the plastic ones, (they do not whistle)..
Needless to say, I'm not going there..

Cheers
