The updated ARB Premium Recovery kit sports a new heavy-duty PVC outer shell and modernized colors. The 600gsm PVC outer provides a rugged exterior that is perfect for recovery situations because it makes cleaning easier and helps keep the bag and its contents from getting damp. Additional updates include named compartments within the bag to keep vital vehicle recovery equipment in its place and on-hand should the need arise, a #10 SBS zippered top, and improved carry handles. The multiple, named compartments provide space for the included snatch strap, tree trunk protector, winch extension strap, shackles, gloves, snatch block, and recovery damper. Included in the kit is the highly regarded and awarded ARB 17,600 lbs vehicle snatch strap (ARB705LB). The ARB snatch strap which has been a winner of many recovery strap tests throughout Australia and the world, has a genuine 20% stretch to reduce shock to components on your vehicle and will assist in recovery situations. Also included in the ARB Premium recovery kit (RK9A) kit, is the highly regarded competition snatch block (10100020) which is used by elite drivers in some of the world's toughest challenges and courses, as well as military applications in most parts of the world. When selecting a vehicle recovery strap (snatch strap) it is recommended that the minimum breaking strength of the strap should be between two and three times the gross vehicle mass (GVM) of any vehicle it is used with, and that the strap must be suited to the GVM of the lighter of the two vehicles used in the recovery process. The 17,600 lbs recovery strap is therefore suitable for vehicles with a GVM between the range of 5800 to 8800 lbs, encompassing a majority of 4WD vehicles. This is only to be used as a general guide.
