When your vehicle’s caught in a torrential downpour on a steep mountain track, stuck in knee-deep mud or bogged in an isolated desert in sweltering temperatures, the reliability, performance and durability of your recovery gear is paramount. Don’t trust your vehicle to substandard recovery products that could jeopardise you and your vehicle’s safety. ARB’s vehicle recovery accessories are engineered and manufactured to the highest standards, making them ideal for recreational use as well as competition. Our updated range of recovery kits ensures maximum peace of mind when you’re out on the tracks.


ARB’s Weekender Recovery Kit is an introductory kit with the minimum recovery gear you need to hit the tough stuff. The Series II edition has been updated to feature a new heavy-duty 600gsm PVC outer shell for a rugged exterior, easier cleaning and ensuring your recovery gear stays dry. The same slim design allows for easy storage in the car or a set of drawers, making sure your recovery gear is on hand should the need arise. Included in the kit is an 8,000-kilogram vehicle recovery snatch strap, two “S” type galvanised 4.5-tonne rated shackles and a set of gloves made from a combination of cow grain leather on the palms and cow split leather on the back. The bag also features dual internal pockets, allowing space to add a recovery damper to the kit (sold separately), and dedicated sewn-in shackle holders. The bag has heavy-duty buckles and a comfortable rubber carry handle.

ARB’s Premium Recovery Kit comes in a multi-compartment pack and provides peace of mind for almost every recovery situation. The Series II edition, like the Weekender Recovery Kit, features a new 600gsm PVC bag, ensuring durability and protection of your recovery accessories. The bag has also been updated with improved handles, making it comfortable to carry around, which is important as it can hold a decent amount of kit.

A clever update to the new bag is multiple named compartments to make sure your recovery gear is always in the right place. The compartments are labelled according to what can fit in the bag.

The contents of the kit include:

  • 8,000-kilogram vehicle snatch strap
  • 12,000-kilogram tree trunk protector strap
  • 4,500-kilogram winch extension strap
  • 9,000-kilogram competition snatch block
  • Two 4.75-tonne “S” type 19-millimetre galvanised shackles with red powder-coat pin
  • Recovery damper
  • ARB gloves made from cow grain and split leather

An alternative choice to the Premium Recovery Kit is the Essentials Recovery Kit which comes in a smaller bag and doesn’t include the Winch extension strap and the Recovery damper.

An ARB snatch strap is similar to a tow rope but is designed to stretch under load for maximum performance and safety. It is a very effective method of extracting a bogged or immobilised 4WD when a second vehicle is present. The unique design of the strap allows it to stretch and return to its original length, aiding recovery and greatly reducing the likelihood of vehicle damage. Rather than work like a massive elastic band, it acts in a similar way to a shock absorber. ARB’s recovery straps are a competition choice and have been the winner of many recovery strap tests throughout Australia and the world.


When selecting a vehicle recovery strap, it is recommended that the minimum breaking strength of the strap be between two and three times the gross vehicle mass (GVM) of any vehicle it is used with. The strap should be suited to the GVM of the lighter of the two vehicles being used in a recovery situation.

The 8,000-kilogram recovery snatch strap, which is included in both the Weekender and Premium Recovery Kits, is suitable for vehicles with a GVM range of between 2,650 kilograms and 4,000 kilograms. This encompasses the majority of 4WD light commercial vehicles and 4WD wagons.
