    The glass mats (gratemate) look pretty good. Anyone selling them in the eastern states?

    I bought a set of the Muputrax a couple of years ago and they come in their own heavy duty bag. As others have said, they are heavier than the plastic type tracks (eg maxtrax etc). Mine came with accessories to turn the pair into a table and bench seat, which I have used several times in that form. Still havenít needed them for a recovery though!

    Fibreglass recovery tracks

    Found these in the garage during the weekend clean out.

    No direct sunlight, I assume the material would still be sound.

    We used to use that stuff for walkways, etc.
    Pretty good stuff, but make sure you wear gloves when handling them, especially after they've been used. Lots of lovely fibreglass splinters just waiting for a new home!

    Set of those saved son's GU in a sand sink hole. They work better than max tracks and a lot cheaper too.
