Kinetic Recovery Rope (Kerr)
The Kinetic Recovery Rope (KERR), was originally developed by H&T Marlow back in the Seventies for military use. At nearly three inches thick, it was designed to retrieve 60 tonne battle tanks, which is a little excessive for private off-road use!
In the Eighties, David Bowyer worked with Marlow’s design team to develop a smaller version for use with off-road vehicles.
Made from 8 strand Nylon, 24mm x 8m long, the rope was found to be ideal for Land Rovers-sized vehicles. The name given to this rope was Recoverline .
The KERR rope is professionally spliced with protected soft eyes using the eight-strand, 12 tonne rope. The multiplait design prevents kinking and hocking.
We recommend that a ‘Bridle’ is always carried and used whenever possible to reduce the shock loads on attachment points when carrying out a recovery.
Our Bridles are 2mx24mm, professionally spliced, and supplied with two FREE three quarter inch shackles. https://goodwinch.com/product/bridle-2m-x-24mm-includes-2-large-d-shackles/
EVEN if you don’t think you’ll have any use for the KERR, no-one should venture off-road without a decent tow rope. A good, ‘keep it In the back’ polypropylene tow rope is ideal for the job. We can supply a 4.5mx24mm, three strand, eight ton rope, professionally spliced with a soft eye at each end, including a FREE three quarter inch 'D shackle. https://goodwinch.com/product/goodwinch-heavy-duty-polyprop-tow-rope/
